Studying for the LSAT / How am I doing?
« on: February 13, 2005, 09:54:19 PM »
I'm planning on taking the LSAT in June, but I haven't even opened a practice test until a week ago.  I'm thinking about buying those "bibles", but I haven't yet and I had no other reading regardting on how to do the LSAT at all.  So, the first practice test I ever opened was that LSAC Sample PrepTest and I was doing it on and off for about three days, LOL.  Most of the time, I wasn't really concentrated as I was doing it during my classes and sometimes half asleep, etc.  I also paid no attention to the time and I was taking all the time that I needed.  I got 68 right out of 101, and based on the chart they had, I guess it's about 156 or so.

Today, I was doing my second practice test, this time it was the official LSAT from June 2003.  I did it all in one day, taking breaks between each section, with more effort and concentration.  Once again, I didn't even try to get it done in 35 minutes, in fact on average I did each of the section in about an hour.  I did the Game section in almost hour and a half, but I got all 23 of them right.  In the end, I got 77 right out of 101, for a score of 161, I think.

I'm taking a PowerScore test in April, but until then I'm planning on just doing more tests.  I would really love to get some feedback on how I'm doing.  Is it self defeating that I take as much time as needed to do each section?  Should I try to fit in, in 35 minutes?  Should I be doing anything else differently?  Any other suggestions?

I'm hoping for a 170 score on the test, do you think with class and more practice it would be possible for me?

Thanks

I'm planning on taking the LSAT on June 6th.  I've registered for PowerScore classes that are suppose to begin in April.  However, I wanted to do some studying myself before I do the course.  Are there any books out there that some of you have found especially helpful in studying for LSAT?  I'll take any suggestions you guys have.

Thanks

Ok, so maybe being Russian is not really a minority, cuz you're still white.  But does being Russian (or just an immigrant in general) help in the admission process or no?
Yes, it can.  Do a search for my thread on the difference between a diversity applicant and a URM applicant.

Is it in Minority Topics section?  Because I couldn't find it.

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT courses. Any recommendations?
« on: January 12, 2005, 10:34:07 PM »
I have decided to takan a LSAT prep course for the June test.  So, I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations as to which ones are the best.  I'm currently thinking of taking it with Princeton Review.  Anyone took it?

Law School Applications / Re: Lawyers Average Starting Salaries
« on: December 03, 2004, 12:22:57 AM »
For the area where I reside, the median expected salary for a typical Attorney I (a graduate of an accredited law school with 0-3 years of experience) is around $85,000. After 3 years the average salary is $100,000 and after 3 other years $140,000. 

Where do you find out something like that?

Thank you, each and everyone of you.  I really appreciate all of your help.

About my GPA, I would LOVE to get it up to 3.75, but I just don't think it's possible.  I'll be lucky if it stays at 3.6 and doesn't go down a bit to 3.5.  Sometime there's just nothing you can do about things.

I'm thinking about taking the LSAT prep course, does anyone have any advice as to which one would be better.  Kaplan, Princeton Reviewo or any others maybe?

Also, could someone explain to me how this whole Tier 1, Tier 2 works?  Which school are tier 1, which are tier 2, etc?

Law School Applications / Where do I begin?
« on: October 14, 2004, 11:22:43 PM »
Hey everyone.  I only today discovered this board and I must say I love it already, unbeliveably helpuful.

I am a Junior at Suffolk Undergad with a 3.6 GPA.  I'm a white male, but not an American, came here to US 7 years ago.  I'm planning on going to Law School after college, but I have no idea where to start, so any help would be HUGELY appreciated.

When exactly do I begin the application process? 
Assuming I get "average" LSAC score, what would be the best Law School I could get in?
Is EA a way to go or no?

I don't even know what else to ask, as I honestly would appreciate ANY kind of information, advise or anything else you might have.

Thanks
