Incoming 1Ls / Re: How old will you be when you start law school?
« on: March 10, 2005, 09:37:39 AM »
If I start when I first planned to start, I'll be 20.  However, I've been thinking of getting my Master's, so I might not start until I'm 22 years old.

My cousin just started at UH.  The squirrels there will walk up to you.  They'll stand on your feet and let you pet them.  There's construction going on at that school, and my cous said he saw some construction people feeding the squirrels chicken from chik-fil-a.   

Kinda sick, in my opinion.  :o

Studying for the LSAT / Re: PowerScore or ScorePerfect?

Thanx.  It's nice to have someone confirm what I was thinking.

Studying for the LSAT / PowerScore or ScorePerfect?
« on: February 04, 2005, 06:54:00 PM »
I am planning on taking a weekend course right before the June 2005 LSAT.  I am not sure whether I should take Powerscore or Scoreperfect. 

I have been working with the Powerscore LGB and LRB.  So, I figure, by going to that course, I won't be taught conflicting methods.

However, the Scoreperfect course is one weekend earlier than the Powerscore course.  Also, the Scoreperfect class seems to spend mor time on RC than Powerscore.  RC is the only section I am not doing too great on.

How do people just go to law school financially?  Do they live off the student loans? ...Any suggestions on how this financial stuff works?

If a person doesn't get a full-tuition scholarship, or grants, or fellowships, then s/he will have to take out student loans or find a rich benefactor. 

planejane, some loans from the federal government do not start accumulating interest until after you graduate.  I would recommend getting government loans, then getting private loans, if you needed more money.

Actually, if you, jiafei, received your degree in Computer Science from an accredited* university you should qualify to sit for the patent bar.  Also, the patent bar is not as hard as it is rumored to be, as long as you take are bar prep course, like the one BAR/BRI offers.

I recommend visiting this site:

*must be accredited by the Computer Science Accreditation Commission (CSAC) of the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board (CSAB), or by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), on or before the date the degree was awarded

Law School Admissions / Re: Critique the LSAT/Law School books you have
« on: February 12, 2004, 01:13:43 PM »
Victor, to answer your question, I will probably take the LSAT in Oct, since I don't think I will be in the country in June.

Just curious, how many practice LSATS did most of you guys take prior to taking the LSAT for real?

I've taken at least 7: four from "10 Real LSATs," one at a free Kaplan session, one that you can print from the LSAC website, and the June 03 LSAT. 

A book is being released, approx. June this year, that will have the first ten tests administered after the last book was published.  I will buy some newer tests, for $8.00/test, instead of the new book since I don't think I need to study as much as I had in the past.
