only thing is first time i took test was at fairfield univesity in CT. During the last section, a track meet started going on outside with a bunch of girls screaming really loud. I thought I blocked it out, but I absolutely bombed that section that I normally got all but a few right in.
I'm hesitant to talk about it in a personal essay b/c I'm afraid that it will look like I'm whining and making excuses.
Well it's nice to know that other people are feeling the same way....and like you, I'm applying to some outside my range for the same reason. At least you got your lsat score first time out. I expected my 163 first time out and scored 10 points lower, so they'll be averaging a 163 and 153 for me at most schools.
Sorry, I meant Nova Southeastern in South Florida, but thank you anyway. I recognize that I'm going to have a difficult time getting into a program with a national reputation, so i'm trying to stick in markets where I want to practice after school.
I appreciate it Midjeep. I'm a bit new to this whole chatboard thing. You were quite correct in that I am looking for anything that people know about trends at certain schools that fall outside of the straight numbers game which is found in any book at Barnes & Noble.
Thanks for the response. I received feedback from another board that it appeared that I was being lazy and asking others to do my HW. I hope I did not send this impression here. By saying NY, DC and Florida, I thought it was obvious that I was looking at Fordham, Cordoza, Brooklyn, St. John's, American, GW, Miami, UF, Nova, etc. Being that I'm the only one I know applying right now, it gets difficult to know if you're applying to the right schools when it's possible certain things that are evaluated more for 22 yolds may or may not matter to me. I was also interested to see if anyone offered a school I should apply to that I may not have considered....
I'm not looking for anyone to do my work for me. I thought by stating NY, DC and Florida, it would be inferred that I was looking at Fordham, Cordoza, Brooklyn, St. John's, American, GW, Miami, UF, Nova, etc without making a long post any longer. I appreciate your response, and apologize if it appeared that I was being lazy.
