Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / GWU Law has new website

Just thought I'd pass it along.  Just went to it and it's totally rebuilt.  Looks nice.  That's it -- I'm going for sure now! :D

Here I come!

It seems like Chicago is more highly regarded in just about every category:  reputation, SCOTUS clerking, academics, etc.  Granted this is all subjective and I haven't done any detailed statistical analysis, but it just seems like, from a subjective point of view, the rankings of NYU and Chicago should be reversed.

I believe "Next 10..." ends at 38.  So are 39-45 ONLY available individually?  I've already done 43-45 as prep for June but I want a few newer ones to save for near October.  Safe to say 39-42 haven't been covered anywhere else (besides a few questions here and there in the bibles)?

Studying for the LSAT / Kaplan's new, real course materials
« on: July 20, 2005, 11:15:57 AM »
Just an FYI to clarify some things:

I took Kaplan in January and we got three main books:  classroom book, big orange book of REAL LSAT questions, and a workbook wtih fake ones.  I was at someone's house the other day who is currently taking the class, and I saw a new book they're using:  it's called something like "Kaplan Complete" or "LSAT Complete."  It's a big purple book of all the released preptests and it's very thick. 

So there you have it -- they are now releasing those as part of their classes while a mere six months ago they did not.  The pressure from TM and Powerscore must be getting to them a bit.

Choosing the Right Law School / Visiting Cornell this weekend
« on: July 13, 2005, 07:54:26 PM »
I have a friend at the undergrad that I'm staying with and I'll get a tour of the law school, and hopefully an overall vibe of Ithaca.  If and when I score better in October, I'll be seriously looking into going there.  They take the higher score.  I'll report back!

This is for those people applying this fall.  Name three schools that you think, no matter what, one of which will be the one you end up at.  I'll go first:


I plan on retaking the LSAT in October.  If I stay stagnant, I think I will, in all likelihood, get into Emory.  If I only improve a couple of points, then it's probably not enough for Cornell, but would probably put me over the edge for GW.  If I improve several points or higher, then I think I have a legitimate chance at Cornell since they take the higher score.  If I totally rock it (170+, which is the plan ;) ) then I think I have a chance at GULC or maybe even Penn and Michigan, but like I said, that is not my most likely scenario.  You?

Studying for the LSAT / getting restless
« on: July 12, 2005, 01:46:07 PM »

Is anyone else getting restless?  After many months of prep I'm sitting on a 164, one of my low scores.  And there isn't a damn thing I can do about it until October.  I almost wish it was being offered next week so I could rock it.  It's too soon to study (because I don't want to burn out or run out of materials), and I've just started working on my PS.  And I don't know what schools I'll be applying to because I don't have an October score yet!  Arrgh!


Yesterday on my drive home from work I see the following on a license plate:  "HYS".  In that order.  And what do I see today?  "T14".   Ahhhhhhh!  I swear I'm not looking for them, they just keep driving in front of me!  Help!

Studying for the LSAT / Avg. scores are usually rounded UP, right?

For instance, 164 and 168=166; will 164 and 167 also = 166 since it would be 165.5?  Does it depend on the school or is it an unwritten-rule?
