Law School Admissions / Re: Bad News?
« on: January 10, 2005, 10:09:29 PM »
The advisor at my school told me that I should not apply to any school unless they are in the 4th tier because of my "low LSAT score combined with a not so great GPA". She also said I would be throwing away my $ if I applied to any school in the top 100. Well, so much shw knows- I've been accepted to a tier 1 and a tier 2 school.

Low LSAT and not so great GPA? LOL. Glad you didn't listen!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Omitting Questions: help or hurt???

Starresky, thanks for the encouragement. i'm prepared today to even take the exam...it was never about me being unprepared i was just really messed up that day and have included an addendum stating that. i'm pretty sure i'll do extremely well in february.

Yeah I was the same way. However, you probably shouldn't have listened to your parents. You know they average scores right?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Test #30 Dec. LSAT Sct. 4 Q. 6
« on: January 10, 2005, 09:51:06 PM »
Well I picked B as soon as I read it because this is a common argument flaw, assuming that since something is sufficient it is the ONLY sufficient solution. E is wrong because you are trying to argue against a premise. In the LSAT if the speaker STATES something as FACT you must take it as so. You are trying to find the problem in their REASONING, not in their premises.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Suggestions?

Damn-With that high of a GPA, I'd shoot higher and look at G-town, Vandy, and give UVA a shot.

Ummm s/he has less than a 10 percent shot according to chiashu (which tends to overinflate for split situations such as his/hers) at UVA and Georgetown. 11/171 of her/his ranking was accepted to UVA last year and 10/181 were accepted at Vanderbilt. With the higher standards this year I would say it would be a real reach for all three of those. I'm not saying s/he shouldn't try but I think you have a distorted view of just how much GPA counts.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: ATTN: Everyone from a no-name UG....
« on: January 10, 2005, 09:08:53 PM »
There is no such thing as a no name UG.  You get out of any school what you put in.

Umm, I think you missed his point. Anyway, good advice. Unfortunately even rank won't help me ;)

Law School Admissions / Re: LSAC Reports
« on: January 10, 2005, 09:04:02 PM »
Does LSAC charge you a report fee if they have to send a late arriving LOR to a school after they have requested your report?

They charge you one time per report. If any updates are necessary they are not going to charge you again. At least in my experience.

Hi. I am wondering if I should interpret school's numbers differently coming from an ivy undergrad?  Would you think that I will have more leverage because of my school, or numbers are numbers? I have a 3.8 and a 159.

It has been discussed to death in the above post but honestly no one really knows for sure since there isn't data grids out there diagramming each undergrad.

Law School Admissions / Re: Top Choice a Safety?
« on: January 10, 2005, 05:19:27 PM »
I would be PERFECTLY happy at USD :) It is in California and it is not in L.A. However, it would be hard for me to say it is my Top Choice, but it's up there!

Hey,

I just checked to see which schools have requested my reports today and I noticed that Michigan did but under term/year it says Summer/2005, but I applied Fall/2005. What do you think that means?

Love,
Q
