Studying for the LSAT / Re: why the lsat is ridiculous
« on: October 21, 2004, 07:38:51 PM »
i know from my experience of doing about 13 of the damn practice tests, my scores varied over a pretty wide range (160-170).  any test that yields such varying results seems to be a poor indicator to me.  there's a big difference between that 160 and 170.  i've noticed some other people having some wide-ranging scores.  is this the norm for everyone or are there just a few of us freaks?

I had a large range, too, 163 - 174.  But I also had the problem that I was never able to take a test in its entirety in one sitting because of my baby.  :-\  I generally did 2 sections at once, and would come back a half hour or hour later to finish the test.  I did "feel the burn" (and then some) on LSAT day because of it... but as long as my score is not below my practice range, I guess I'll be okay with it (enough not to take that thing again, anyway).

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Who else is NOT voting

Plus Colorado is trying to vote in a change that will split their electoral college votes according to the state's popular vote - which I believe is a good thing - but only if all states do so...otherwise again their votes mean more than mine.

Not necessarily, since Colorado is apparently pretty divided.

Anybody else concerned about election fraud with all the electronic voting systems?  I sure hope this election doesn't have to be decided by the SC again.  I think if the results are disputed like in 2000, it will probably hurt the country and our international relations more than even the Iraq war.

Most of the advice I've read says you should avoid contractions, except when using direct quotes.  There are plenty of ways to give your statement an informal tone without using contractions.  Good luck.   :)

Oh look at the baby . . .

Gaaaa gaaa gooo gooo !!

Welcome rhapsody.

I'm glad this thread is bringing lurkers out of hiding. We dont bite  :)

Why are you leaving your job at the microfiber place? The job sounds exciting.


Thanks for the welcome, Victor.  :)  Actually, her sounds are more like squeaks and squeals, with the more-than-occasional "WAAAAHH!"  She just now discovered her lips, it seems, and is adding smacky sounds to her repertoire.

The job was exciting, until I felt I had mastered my responsibilites, and I got bored.  Plus, I was travelling 80 - 100% of the time, so I can't do that anymore.  And just before I had the baby, my company closed our office in Baltimore and offered relocation to Sturbridge, MA which we're definitely not going to take... so that pretty much limits my options!  To a certain extent I'm leaving specifically because I'm a disgruntled employee who feels there's nothing else I want to do there.  I still really like the technology, though.  Anyway, all that to say that I figured out I would rather be a lawyer than an engineer, so law school, here I come...   ;)

Law School Applications / Re: Work Experience
« on: October 19, 2004, 08:54:49 PM »
I agree with Cheeks.  Working after undergrad has definitely helped me get a better idea of what I really want to do for a career.  (Ok, more like what I don't want to do, but anyway...)  Plus, I think I would really have burned out if I went straight to law school after undergrad.

Hi!

I have been lurking for about a month now, and decided to come out of hiding since this board seems so welcoming.  :)

Graduated from MIT with a bachelor's in ChemE in 2002 and my M.R.S.   ;)  Have been working in Baltimore for a company that manufactures hollow-fiber microfiltration membranes for water and wastewater treatment.  Am currently on maternity leave; our daughter was born August 5.  Now seems like the best time to apply to law school, while Ruth is little.

Planning on patent law, and will stay in the D.C. area.  Applying to Georgetown, GW, UMaryland, CUA, and UBaltimore.  Took the LSAT on October 2 and had AR as my experimental section (thank goodness).

Otherwise, am on pins and needles for Friday like most everyone else, but am not looking forward to Monday -- that's when maternity leave ends!
