Law School Applications / Re: October or December ?? arrghhh !!!
« on: August 15, 2005, 08:28:28 PM »
I'd say take it in October with out hesitation.  You still have a month and a half and that's all you really need to study for the test.  Personally I "overstudied" if that makes any sense and saw my scores peak then fall.  Had I done it again, I would have studied for about 7 or eight weeks and been done with it.  There's not all that much skillwise to learn for the test.  Good luck!

Hey thanks guys. I'll definately hit the books for the next month and a half and will sign up for the October test. Considering what some of you have said about being waitlisted if you wait later to apply than it looks like I don't have a choice  :-\

Hey jeb, from what I understand you can take your lsat wherever you are. If you happen to be in Mongolia and no lsat centers exist, I believe you have to pay something like $300 to set one up near you, well in advance ofcourse, and voila, you're on your way.

I  have one last question: for those of you who've been studying for the october test, how long have you been studying for?

thanks again.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Reading Books (and lots of them)....
« on: August 13, 2005, 04:13:27 PM »
Yep, reading never hurts. But it has to be something that you've been doing doing over a long period of time.  Not even reading Ghandi's biography would help you if you start picking  up books 3 weeks before the lsat.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: YES! I am a procastrinator ?
« on: August 13, 2005, 04:09:49 PM »
Well, that one way could lead to a pretty bumpy ride and in some cases a dead end-that's why I'm asking.  ;)

I'm most likely going to study like crazy anyway and see what kind of scores I'm getting nearing October. But I'm trying to find out if this is something that has been done before. Are there other people who've been in the same situation and have pulled it off ? Is it possible, probable, likely....?

Studying for the LSAT / YES! I am a procastrinator ?
« on: August 13, 2005, 03:53:51 PM »
Now that I've gotten that off my chest I have a question: for those that have taken the lsat and those that are preparing for it, what kind of timeline have you worked with as far as studying? I want to take the October lsat and I've yet to study, or at least seriously. I've taken some samples and the logic games section is the one that particularly bothers.

So to my question: is it possible for me to do well if I start studying my proverbial butt off from this very day on ? Well actually anything's possible so let me put it another way: is it probable for someone to get a good score with such a timeline ?

thanks  ;D

Law School Applications / Re: business major-> bad??
« on: August 13, 2005, 12:45:52 PM »
See that's what it all comes down to...thats all you school of B people think about, money.

It's in our genes...money is the sole purpose for majoring in business..money money and more money


But seriously I don't see why it should make a difference as long as you do well on the lsat and have a high gpa. I've majored in international business and minored in English and French. But for my work experience I've been working with nonprofit organizations and been taking part in social service and humanities activities. I hope this is not categorized as a discrepency in my goals but rather a portrayal in the variety of my interests. hopefully . ayy...so many things to think worry and hyperventilate about  :-\

Law School Applications / October or December ?? arrghhh !!!
« on: August 13, 2005, 12:34:04 PM »
I realize this is somewhat of an LSAT topic but is there really a big difference in applying after your October lsat or after the December lsat. I've been set to take the october lsat and send all my stuff by the end of the month. I need more time to study so I'm making it December. Ofcourse I've heard in submitting application the earlier the better but will it make a big diff in my chances if I wait until December to submit my applications rather than october ???

thanks in advance.

Hey guys,

Does anyone have any power score books you're willing to sell? Even if you're still using the books but plan on selling them in the future I'd still be interested.

thank you

Recommendations / Really, how important are LORs
« on: April 23, 2005, 11:50:47 AM »
I've been pouring over admission books, statements from individuals in admission boards etc. and I have gotten the general idea that letters of recommendation are really not worth much and some schools have now made it optional. From what I understand, unless they're absolutely horrible, they don't make that big of a diff. Is this true?
