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....

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.,19796.0.html

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?

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!


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?


Law School Admissions / Withdrawing Apps
« on: December 27, 2004, 11:00:43 AM »
I applied to a bunch of safeties but since I got my new LSAT score, I feel fairly confident that I can aim higher. Should I withdraw the apps to most of them so that my spot can be given to someone else? If so, how do I go about doing this? E-mail? Letter? Thanks for the help!


Law School Admissions / Where should I apply?
« on: December 09, 2004, 06:22:45 PM »
Hi everyone,

This board is full of many people much more informed than I am about law schools and who they admit. I have a really low GPA and a semi-decent LSAT score. Am I aiming too high with my list? I have a 2.9 GPA with a B.S. in Information & Computer Science and I got a 164 on my Oct. LSAT (took the December one too but let's just assume I don't improve). Here is my list of schools:

Reach for the sky:
UC Davis
UC Hastings

Reach for the skyscraper:
Loyola Marymount

Santa Clara
Univ. of San Diego
Case Western


I am mainly looking at a good IP program, but I don't even know if I will get into any of those :( Is it hopeless? Are there any schools you recommend I apply to? If I don't get into a top 100 school, I'd like to stay in California.
