Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT prep in London?

Ok, sorry, testmasters weren't around when I studied for the test (that makes me feel old!.. it was only two years ago). Go with them.

I have, with Kaplan, which I believe is the sole provider of LSAT prep in London. I didn't think it was bad, but then I had a fantastic tutor who has many years' experience but has since left and launched his own LSAT prep business. I think it totally depends on who teaches you, and the other teachers weren't that great (I repeated the course and my first teacher was dreadful). Also, some of the Kaplan classes are really basic imo and you can learn the stuff alone. I would recommend learning as much as you can about the test alone, and then getting a private tutor for the bits you really need help with. If you want my tutor's details, PM me and I'll pass them on. Otherwise, contact the Fulbright Commission - they will have his and other private tutors's details. Jut my two cents.

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: Foreign Education, LSDAS and GPAs

Still not a problem. You simply ask your recommendor to provide you with the number of copies you need sealed and signed. Provide the stationery and postage. They will understand and be pleased to do it. What's another few printouts, after all?

You MUST sign the waiver  - it's very important. Even with a GPA you wouldn't be able to go through LSDAS. So I'd stick with the multiple sealed recommendations option. good luck!

Someone else from Israel! Yay! Gam ani!
Sorry I can't help re: grading scale, as I studied in England, but it's great to find someone else from Israel applying to US law schools. I can't wait to return to Tel Aviv for the holiday!

There is an educational service that calculates GPA for foreign grads. I think it's called 'Foreign Education Service'. In any case, law schools can give you their contact details. What I would do is write and explain the situation in an addendum. UK qualifications cannot easily be measured on a GPA scale and law schools were willing to accept this with an addendum.

It doesn't matter one bit that you can't go through LSDAS. You get your recommendations (sealed with a signature on the seal) and send them with the rest of your application directly to the schools to which you are applying.

Hope that helps.

« on: June 02, 2005, 05:24:19 PM »
I agree that Chicago money goes further, but it _is_ San Francisco, after all. Need I say more?

Yay! Nope, no medical or photo requirement that I have heard of. Congrats on making up your mind!  :)
