Choosing the Right Law School / Another chances, 3.7, 167
« on: June 29, 2006, 07:36:31 PM »
sorry to post yet another. Got a 167 today. Would be somewhat pleased if not for the new rule. To retake or not to, mercy. Anyway, my main five schools are UWash, UMinn, USC, UCLA, & Texas. Chances? How about reaches? I am thinking GULC, Cornell, Boalt, maybe Mich? Am white, econ & ancient history major (history + latin). Thoughs?

Studying for the LSAT / So i am kind of nervous now
« on: May 29, 2006, 07:14:00 PM »
I have an average LSAT prep of 167ish. My goal is 166 or so. I have been fairly at ease with how i have been doing. However, the preptests i am taking have been from 96-97 (though i took 2 from 2000 and scored 166 and 167 on them). I take it, due to the age of these tests my "167 average" is in fact lower than in looks? I have some new tests on the way, but how much can i expect to drop?  (also, my strength is cr and analytical reasoning. Usually i have a combined 6 or so wrong on the 2 ar and cr sections. The games are what kill me.)

Studying for the LSAT / Studying older tests
« on: May 29, 2006, 05:06:49 PM »
I have been studying the lsat for the past month and a halfish and will take the lsat in june. First I went through the bibles, and now i am going through tests. I started with preptests 19-28 from "10 More Actual, Official LSAT Preptests' Spanning 96-99. I am continuing on with 29 on. Should i be focusing on more recent tests? I have both books purchased, but would it be more beneficial to take more recent tests? already i have noticed (or perhaps this is my imagination) the more recent tests seem to have easier logic games and harder reasoning. Will i feel somewhat uprepared  or perhaps taken off guard if my studying is confined to old tests?

Studying for the LSAT / games-conditional rules question
« on: April 29, 2006, 03:22:14 PM »
I am working through the logic games bible (just started) and hit a bit of a snag. Here is the game

A doctor must schedule nine patients L,M,O,P,R,S,T,V, and X - during a given week, monday through Sunday. At least one patient must be scheduled for each day, and the schedule must observe the following constraints:
M and S must bed scheduled for the same day
On the day P is scheduled, P must be the only patient scheduled to see the doctor.
Exactly one patient is scheduled for wednesday
T cannot be scheduled for thursday
if P is scheduled for MOnday, then V and X must be scheduled for Saturday
R is not scheduled for thursday unless L is scheduled for Monday

If L is scheduled for monday, which one of the following must be true?
the correct answer is - P is not scheduled for monday
I understand this, as it is fairly simple, but I dont understand why another option they threw in is wrong.
That option is - R is scheduled for thursday.

I took the final rule to be similar to a "you will not get an A unless you study" IT seems that as L is scheduled for monday, the sufficient condition is satisfied, and R must be schedule for thursday

Studying for the LSAT / Recommend an lsat study plan

My summer break officially begins April 28th (I am studying abroad). I am taking the June 12th LSAT. How many practice tests, etc should I take in between? I have studied for the LSAT before, and will start the break off by doing the logic games bible. How much can a solid month of study up my score? I was scoring mid to low 160's last summer when I was practicing on and off.

Law School Admissions / More study abroad gpa questions
« on: January 25, 2006, 12:07:25 PM »
I still dont quite get how my study abroad grades are calculated into my lsac gpa. First off, my school is counting the number of credits I am taking out here as equal to 4 and a half full classes at my home institution. However, one only takes three classes at my study abroad institution. How will lsac count that? Second, do law schools take into account the fact that foreign schools often grade much more harshly than american schools? I feel a little stupid for studying abroad, dropping my gpa .3, and turning matches into reaches.

Law School Admissions / Study Abroad not included in LSAC gpa?
« on: January 23, 2006, 03:07:17 PM »
My home institution does not incorporate my study abroad grades into my gpa, but simply gives me credit for passing the courses (very much like taking a class pass/fail. Under these circumstances, would the lsa...whatever include my study abroad grades in my overall gpa?

Law School Admissions / studying abroad worst idea ever?
« on: January 19, 2006, 02:16:43 PM »
So I am studying abroad my second sem of junior year. As of now I have a 3.7. However, it is becoming increasingly evident that Brit Uni is going to rape me. THis one semester is going to annihilate my gpa (I am only taking 3 classes, but my home school counts it as a semester and an eighth worth of classes.) Anyway, law schools will only see my GPA through my junior year right? Or do they see that first sem senior year gpa? How much will I be screwed if I just do awful out here (all c's would be a dream come true.) Anyone else have this experience? I am kind of pissed that a single sem is going to ruin my chances at many schools.
