Law School Admissions / Sound Advice Requested
« on: September 12, 2005, 06:14:55 PM »
Ok so I'm registered to take the LSAT October 1st, but was thinking of delaying the test until December 3rd.  I'm taking 23 semester hours at the moment (my last semester in undergrad) and think its getting in the way of the October test.  My question is this:  If I take the DEcember test, do you guys think I'll be at a severe disadvantage in getting into the schools I'm applying to: T14s, and some others.  My UGPA is a 3.7 and, for whatever they're worth, practice test scores of 168,171,172,174,172,173.  Any advice would be most appreciated.

I would reccomend to first write notes in the margin when a certain point is discussed in the passage.  You have to underline things, look for shifts in the language that the author uses (like however and so on).  I think this would really help.  Secondly, you just have to really focus, I don't think speed in of itself will hwlp all that much right now.  So take various notes, read the questions first, and underline.

By the way, what are you doing for the Logic Games to get such great scores.  I'm doing fine on everything else, but the games are killing me.  Your advice on the Games section would be appreciated....

I'll look at it for you, you can send it to

This may sound stupid, but is it really beneficial to attend these forums?  I was thinking of attending one, however, I wasn't sure of the benefits of attending.  Is mostly a "I'll introduce myself, and talk about my credentials and hope they remember me sort of thing?"

are you only applying to t-14 schools or are you writing a special t-14s only PS and something else (lesser?) to other schools?

I'm taking the carpet bomb approach to the applications--15 schools, 6 of which are t-14s'.

So I have quite a few withdrawals on my transcript, which my school considers them non-punitive as they were done before the Withdrawal deadline.  All in all, I have about 12 on there.  This is due to various reasons, for example, having to drop out of school for a semester to go overseas.  The others are because of work and stuff and the other are sort of hit and miss (here and there).  I was actually performing fairly well in these classes, but had to withdrawal.  I was wondering if I should submit an addendum for this, and how do you think it will affect their decisions.

UPGPA 3.69 Practice scores of 169,172,171,172 (if that matters)

Well, thats not that difficult to figure out.  It would be helpful to know the actual numbers though.

I think whether or not write an addendum is based primarily on the school in which you are applying.  If it were me, I would indeed write an addendum.  With just the "F" sitting there, the adcomms have no idea why or what happened, but, with an addendum you can afford them with some insight.

Anyone know where I may find Harvard's most recent admitt stats for 1L entering 2005?

Law School Admissions / PS for T-14
« on: September 07, 2005, 07:05:25 PM »
I'm in need of a little guidance for the PS to the T-14 schools that I'm applying to.  I thought that one should write about something that makes them different from other applicants.  How can one write about what makes them stand out and not writing a boring ass PS?  Any advice, please give.  Thanks
