Studying for the LSAT / Re: T Minus 24 hours

This is an interesting note, however, from the LSAC site:

"LSAC is experiencing a delay in entering Letters of Recommendation (LORs) into candidate files. This delay has created a backlog of letters, so even some letters that were received over a week ago have not yet been processed. Please be aware that we have notified the law schools of this delay, and have requested that they accommodate applicants who may be attempting to meet early application deadlines and whose files may not yet be complete."

I assume that the delay is due to the processing volume, and the LSAT scoring processes?

I'm trying to think of a happy place while I'm waiting...

Awesome story DOWNY, yet I can't help but wonder... how did you wind up doing in that Judaism class? :P

Hey Victor:

My first corporate job (aka "a real job") was with a company called KeyCorp (http://www.key.com), which is fairly big out here in the Northeast - it's primarily a banking institution, which lends itself to all sorts of employment stability horrors... they eventually wound up laying me off back in '00 after the whole Y2K scare died down.

Since then, I've worked in the IT industry making good $$$ as a Network Engineer, but, ho-hum, it's got almost zero job satisfaction over time...

I've always loved the idea of working with the law and I think that now is the time, if ever there will be a time, for me to take the plunge. I have a different life perspective from many of you on LSD, but, in the end, we all want the same thing, I think: a rewarding, satisfying career.

Here's to us, and the future we're hoping for.  :)

Well, this board is really helpful, which compels me to post my info when I normally wouldn't (just due to the passing nature of these things).

I'm (hopefully) a returning student after having graduated way back in '92 from SUNY Albany - been working for the last 12 years and am ready for a change. uGPA about 3.2, and hoping for the Oct.LSAT to come back in at least the mid-150s. Only targeting one law school - Albany Law School, due to the fact that I live in Albany, NY area and want to stay here. Some of you guys are way past me in terms of credentials and are going to go on to some great things - good luck to all of you out there!

Here's hoping for the Friday score postings  ???

Just FYI, the online Atlnatic Monthly is here: http://www.theatlantic.com/. You can check it out and determine for yourself whether or not it's as challenging as the LSAT passages...

Some other cool online "intellectual exercise" stuff:

Hans Bethe - Perspectives of Quantum Mechanics lectures: http://bethe.cornell.edu/

Various Video Law Lectures (esp.enjoyed the Dershowitz lecture under "Lawyers, Lawyering and the Legal Profession"): http://jurist.law.pitt.edu/live.htm

Ann Rand Objectivism "speeches" (views not necessarily mine :)): http://www.aynrand.org/site/PageServer?pagename=media_speeches

Have fun!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: ANYONE else have problem with games section?
« on: October 19, 2004, 07:51:37 AM »
I feel pretty much the same way - I actually thought I did quite well in the games section in the first half (2nd section?), but then found the second batch of games after the break to be fairly difficult. I thought I had gotten past the games, so I believed it to be the experimental section, and wasn't too concerned with it's difficulty.
Unfortunately, the board messages seem to point out that the first games section was the experimental and the second games was the scored. I've been trying to keep positive about the results but the waiting period has become loooong and my patience is wearing thin along with my confidence levels...
Oh well - I guess we'll know soon enough. And the December sitting is just a registration form away...
