My problem is that my 3.8 is from a crappy school and that I don't have anything except my lsat and gpa to get me in..

As far as my chances, I'm going by the lsac calculator thingy on their website..

Thanks for the support though, I hope I get into some of my reaches

I started a thread on this here but only one person really had any input for me at the time:,14771.0.html

I asked my princeton review teacher about it, he said it would have been good prep in 1996, but it really isn't good

He might just be biased because he works for the princeton review, but he's an incredible teacher, and is writing an lsat book himself, so I tend to take what he says with a lot of salt

Yeah I think the time is better spent while the whole thing is fresh in your mind

I'm kind of in the same boat with args and games (my RC sucks), although I just did a diagnostic today (dec 2003) and got 2 wrong on the first args section, and got my first perfect args section on the second.

Unlike you, the only questions I ever get wrong are ones I'm sure about, and the ones with big ?'s next to them, I tend to get right.. :shrug:

I'd say that if you have time to go back, then you might benefit from spending more time on the questions you're not sure about when you're first working them.. Personally I wish I had time to go back, I always seem to finish answering the last question a few seconds before they call 'time.'

Mmmm.. UPenn.. :drool:

I was impressed by FSU's private sector starting salary, but their employment @ grad rate was kind of low

Didn't look at UF though

You can download this year's october lsat from

Just keep in mind, the scaled scores are curved.. so a 172 will always be about the 99th percentile, etc

Get used to thinking about your grades and scores as curved!  You're going to law school, after all :)

Fordham has a really nice "Campus" .. it's right across the street from lincoln center, which is really pretty at night.

I wish I could block those damn ads.. the Adblock plugin for firefox can block them on plenty of other sites but when I try to use it to block them on gmail, gmail stops working

Apparently there's a custom CSS you could use to block them but I couldn't get it to work

You guys are scaring me!

I want to work in Cali, but I'll chase a paycheck to NY or DC if I have to!

Do these things still apply if you're going to a decent school? 

For example U Minnesota, Emory, GWU, Wash U, BU have decent rankings, would it actually be really hard for me to find good paying work in cali?
