Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Law School Admissions Index
« on: January 11, 2005, 02:11:11 PM »

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).

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Question of the Day

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 :)


Asians :) BTW, what does this have to do with Acceptances? Haha.

Law School Admissions / Re: Should law schools know my GMAT score?

The reason I'm asking is because some of my schools did in fact ask for it (but at the time, I hadn't taken it yet.)

Temple was one them and is my first choice. So you can see why i'm sort of in a quandry.

If they asked for it, send it. Don't send it to the schools who didn't.

It is a requirement that you give them your most up to date information.

Oh wow, we both want to go to the same school, what is the best school that you think we both have a shot at attending?
 I am buying a house/condo/townhome wherever we move to and she will be my paying roommate, or we may both buy it together to get approved for a higher amount.
 Is this a wise idea?

It's hard to say. I mean what if she gets into Harvard and you don't? Or vice versa. Will one of you be willing to give it up in order to live together?

Haha let me clarify!

How honest am I being?  I feel that is overly rude.  I'm not sure how these boards work since I am new to the community, but I fell I have gained a strong understanding over the last two months. Why in the world would, after all the help everyone has been to me answering my questions, which were at times idiotic, post a false acceptance letter? I have appreciated the resource that this board has been, and thank all posters for the information provided.  I would not post a false acceptance. 

I think everyone is tense around here because acceptances/rejections are starting to come in and everyone is being super sensitive to possible flames. Thanks for sharing your info and please don't be hindered by the posts that questioned your integrity because those that believe you value your input.

Aren't we both considered urms?
 if you are from vietnam are you considered urm?

Being Vietnamese myself, and doing some digging around, I can tell you that we are NOT considered under-represented minorities unfortunately!
