Studying for the LSAT / Re: When to start studying for Lsats
« on: March 27, 2005, 04:27:51 PM »
Thanks, does anyone anything I could work on gradually. For example, on the SATs I just memorized words and took practice tests but people who did better than me on verbal said they were avid readers. I understand that for the Lsats critical reading and analysis is very important, how can I work/tone these skills?

Studying for the LSAT / When to start studying for Lsats

So when should I start studying for the Lsats. The logical answer would be as soon as possible, but I dont want to spend a ton of money on a prep program 2 years before I actually take the test. How should the regiment be? Any suggestions, any tips, any programs I should use? I heard from an old SAT tutor that the big named prep courses are not as good as the smaller prep places.

Thank you all so much for your insight on my situation, especially SleepyGuyYawn. I'm glad that there are people over the internet who would take a significant amount of time to help a total stranger in need of guidance. You guys have made me sleep easier since prior to this information I was struggling with the idea that my dreams would be over because I screwed up in HS as a stupid kid who fell into the traps of peer pressure. Again thanks a whole bunch for all of your comments I'll be sure to post again if I ever have any more questions  ;D

Law School Admissions / Undergraduate Question. NEED HELP Please
« on: March 26, 2005, 05:37:11 PM »
I know I'm a big young to be on this site, heck I haven't even begun undergraduate yet, but I just have a question and I dont know where else to turn. I don't usually put my faith on a forum but people on this site seem very informative and intelligent so I thought I'd take a chance. Ok so here's the situation:
I dont have the best grades because of a rocky fresh and soph year but I got accepted into a few schools. I've limited my list to

CUNY City college Honors college
Vassar College
New York University
Fordham University
Binghamton (very unlikely)

The top three choices are the most likely schools I would be attending. I would like to go to a good law school and I was wondering whether or not an undergraduate school say such as city college would hinder my chances. The reason I would like to go there though is because it'll give me a full ride plus money and other incentives such as a laptop. All my friends tell me not to jeopardize my education by going there, but I keep thinking that it isn't like I'm turning down HYPS.

So would a law school look down on me if I went to city college even if it is a honors program which is selective, or should I opt to take out loans from say Vassar or NYU? I'm wondering if a top law school would automatically reject my application just because of the undergraduate school I went to. I'm determined to work very hard in college but it would be depressing if my best would not be good enough because of the school I go to.

Sorry if this post is long but could someone please help me out of this dire situation?
