...or by time we've found this board, the apps are in, the LSAT is taken and what we wrote in the personal statement is long forgotten history...
Karen W. - thanks for the reply. I actually have a buddy who is at Kent now. Yes, I'm definitely interested in her contact info. Feel free to post it here or email me directly at email@example.com. Much thanks in advance!
if it was expunged, you don't have to disclose
You absolutely do not have to disclose anything that has been expunged or juvenile offenses for law schools.
About 10 years ago my wife and I had a terminally ill child. I tried to attend college for about three semesters and pay for his medical bills. Those three semesters I averaged a 1.8. I had to leave school to pay off bills.
I returned in 2002 and pulled off 3-36 hour semesters with a 4.0. I redid my entire degree. It has gotten my GPA into a decent spot, but I am a much stronger student than my GPA suggests.
90-100 is an A, 80-90 is a B? Whoa, did I miss something in undergrad? o.O My Bs were more like 50-60s... Actually, law school sounds a lot like college then -- gotta love those curves.
I think it really depends on your study habits. I didn't take any courses but did study from several of the prep books out there (Kaplain's and Princeton Review's) and did well enough (164). You might want to take several practice tests and see how you do before spending the money on the courses, imo.Schoomp, I think you may have misunderstood the request.
Thanks for the advice. I am writing them a letter and I am including court records and an explanation. I am also visiting the school for their pre-law day and hopefully I can speak with someone>
Does anyone know of a reputable LSAT tutor in the Chicagoland area? Money is no object if the quality and experience is there. Or perhaps I need a study group?There is an instructor for one of the national prep courses that lives in Chicago. She is a part-time student at Chicago-Kent in her 4th year (she graduates this year). She scored in the 98th percentile on the LSAT. She does private tutoring.
Any thoughts on part time weekend courses for LSAT prep?
