Your best chance is DePaul and even that is a semi-target/reach. I would add some safeties if I were you.

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: Fee waivers and LSACD?
« on: January 13, 2005, 02:45:27 PM »
Anyone know how this works? I've received a number of fee waivers but most of them want me to mail them with the app - how do I go about sending them in if I do LSACD's electronic applications?

Thx in advance

Usually if you have a fee waiver it will show up on LSACD on the Web and you will see it on your TRANSMIT page. Which schools are you talking about?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: A Kick Ass Game

Setup the game board, write the rules down and combine pairs of physical therapies.  The game should solve itself.

Okay so if I start off grouping the physical therapies then I get this setup which was a heck of a lot faster!

You have 1 dietary, and at most 2 antibodies, which means you need at least 2 physical therapies. The combos for that is:

U V W _ _
U V _ _ _
U W _ _ _
V W _ _ _

Then you know to get V, you need H and M. So then . . .

U V H M _
U W _ _ _
V W H M _

Then you also know there can only be 1 dietary regimen so then . . .

U W G H _ (last is either m or o since you can't have g when you got u and n)

Different setup but it works out well.

I got:

18. E
19. E
20. E
21. E
22. D
23. C

But I think I could have missed this one entirely if I had this for the real LSAT. My biggest deduction was that there could never be N or F in any prescription.

I had a similar problem. They sent me an e-mail about my file being updated but when I checked the website, it looked identical to how it looked the last time I got an update email.

I would send in two academics since some if not most actually ask for two academics. But that's just from my own experience. It depends on where you are applying.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Law School Admissions Index

Nope, that just means that you look really good for getting into that school. :)
A split would be a more extreme difference between GPA and LSAT (above 75% for one, around 25% for the other).

Yep, you are looking good :)

I checked a school that I was intersted in, and got an index of 3.3 when I plugged in the 75th percentile LSAT and 75th percentile GPA. My index for the same school, with my statistics, is also 3.3. Does that mean I stand a good chance?

If you are a split, high gpa/low lsat or vice versa, then no, it doesn't say much about your chances unless your high score is what the school is known for desiring (i.e. high gpa for a UC).

AWESOME! I am sure you earned it with that GPA and LSAT ;) J/K. But CONGRATS! I hope to have some of your good fortune too!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Question of the Day
« on: January 11, 2005, 04:48:17 PM »
Ok guys, and gals, here is the question of the day.  It is generally accepted that if a answer option containes the words, "never" "always" ect, it is usually not the correct answer.  When is this tactic employed and when should it be ignored immediately.  I mean, I am sure it is a method of increasing a persons speed in answering questions, however, can, and should, it be a method of elimination when deciding between possible correct answers, say between 2 possible answers?

Never and always are in answers for assumption questions a lot :)
