Studying for the LSAT / Re: Does anyone have these prep tests on pdf?

Correction.  Preptests are freely distributed.  All other lsat study material distributed an your own risk.   ;)

So I suppose there is no truth to the rumors about the huge preptest pdf sting operation I heard about then, huh....

Good thing we aren't all interested in the legal profession anyway...

Hey now, this beggar with one post can't help being a newbie on this site.

after all, you with what, a whopping 38 posts?, had to start with a single post too.

and the person who said that someone had gotten into trouble selling stuff on this website ended up referring to class materials, which are proprietary. NOT books which you can resell if you want.

pdfs on the other hand, seem a little shady, wouldn't you think?

and caspar, you may be an ass, but you made me laugh... ;D

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Crazy Question here........

everything i have read says that the lsat and your gpa are going to show the adcomms how well you are going to do in law school - and that the ps is more to get a sense of the story of the individual behind the numbers. so it is interesting to me to read about making sure to focus on the why i want to be a lawyer aspect of it.

so back to the original question about the picture in the essay about giving up a child for adoption...

in my VERY humble opinion, i think adcomms are looking for prospective students whose beliefs and experiences cover a wide spectrum, and not necessarily people who agree with their own moral or political belief systems. i imagine that they look for someone who can show a thoughtful decision making process that relies on a combination of core philosophical belief and rational argument.

the subject matter of giving up a child for adoption could definitely show your individual belief systems, which. if not preachy or moralizing (which it doesn't sound like it would be based on your posts) would give them a strong sense of an critical formative event in your life and a view of how you handled, and continue handling its repercussions. having to make difficult choices, by their nature, show that you have an ability to see both sides of an argument, since if you only saw one side...the choice would be easy, wouldn't it?

i imagine too that you are drawing a clear connection between that event, who you are today, and who you are working to become (of which your future law school education is a part).

oh. and no on the picture. in any application, not just yours. words are a lawyer's first tool, so use 'em and wow 'em.

well. apparently i am shameless....though not enough to pimp myself...

i'll spend the dough if i have to but i thought that someone might have a useful resource i don't know anything about....

especially since i just decided last night to apply to law schools for next year and take the dec test.

i have no prep material, am doing all my research on the best way to prepare so i am a little bit behind the curve on the whole law school application and lsat thing...

Studying for the LSAT / can't find a used powerscore lr bible anywhere...
« on: October 12, 2004, 01:29:52 PM »
i can find the lg bible on ebay (unless someone out there wants to sell me theirs) - but i can't seem to find the lr bible for less than what it is on the powerscore site...and since i am scraping the bottom of my financial barrel...any suggestions on saving some dough would be hugely appreciated!
