I too am interested in any information in regards to FCSL.....
As far as what I know, they are newly accredited school, and are fairly lenient when it comes to acceptance. My numbers are 153 LSAT, 3.82 GPA. They offer a generous scholarship that definitely makes up for the private school costs. I am not sure where I will end up going. I would love to get the hell out of Ohio...... but it would be tough to move away from everything.
Don't know how much this will help you, but I have not taken any courses...... I have been "studying" for a long time, but it has never been anything very serious, and it has never involved any strategy. I usually just practice problems from the "Master the LSAT" book. When september rolled around I started taking practice tests from the book "10 actual, official LSAT preptests" under the proper time limits.
First score I got was a 159.
Since then I have taken many more tests and it appears my score and the whole test procedure has improved (I am more comfortable, and I usually finish with time to spare). Practice seems to have really helped. Sometimes even when I am not sure why an answer is right, somehow I just know that it is going to be the answer.
Anyway, we will see tommorrow (October 4, 2003) if it has been worthwhile.
What about background in computer science? Do you all think it would present a similar situation?
I've always wanted to go to law school, but ended up going into computers because it was the "it" thing to do at the time. A couple years later, I have a bachelors in Computer Science, a hatred for coding, and the industry is pretty bad......
