Acceptances / Re: In at Widener
« on: January 23, 2006, 08:55:47 PM »
Widener must have the evening division wrapped around their finger here in central PA, and know it.  My numbers were competitive in comparison to yours, and I got no grant offers.

A school I'm applying to wants the PS to be no more than two pages double spaced.  I've managed to whittle down a 12pt single space, two page, times new roman Personal Statement down to a 10.5pt, 1.5 space, two page, arial narrow Personal Statement without removing anything.  How cool am I?  Will these hijinks land my application in the round file?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: I love this board!
« on: October 07, 2005, 09:32:13 PM »
Hey, guys!

I've been lurking on LSD for a few weeks now, and I have to say, I give it two thumbs up in the weirdest Ebert-and-Roeperish sort of way (or Siskel, for the sticklers).  I'm a veteran of many a discussion forum, and this one ranks among the best.  It's entertaining, informative, and (that rarity on the net) non-threatening.  It seems almost devoid of trolls.  Even the ones that do appear seem harmless enough and tend to be shooed away quietly.

I recently decided I'm going to shoot for law school in the United States, preferably on the West Coast.  I'm a South African turned Canadian studying at the University of Alberta in Edmonton.  So far, this board has been a wealth of useful tidbits and solid advice.  I hope to stick around for the next year or two as I work towards my goal. 

Anyway, I'm glad I found this place, and will be dropping by on a semi-regular basis (probably regular, actually - the heavier my workload gets, the more I tend to procrastinate). 

Later!


p.s. This double post is enough... just wanted to get the message out to a larger audience...

Law School Applications / Re: Another Criminal Background Question
« on: October 06, 2005, 07:56:05 PM »
If the charges were dropped and you still need to include it, try and state (if its true) that the pot wasnt yours. You all but say it. so why not just say it?

They didn't ask anything about the 'crime' or lack thereof.  They are only interested in the records and outcome.  Regardless, I'll send it as is.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: the LSAT as a weightloss method

I got sick and gained weight from sitting in a chair 22 hrs a day.  I am also less tan than when I started studying.

Law School Applications / Another Criminal Background Question
« on: October 04, 2005, 09:58:05 PM »
Do you think this is stiffing the admissions people?  I don't want to offend the committee, but I also don't want to pay the lawyer to go fish out his old records of my case.  The university in question explicitly asks for court records and/or police reports.  This is my character and fitness statement to explain being charged with posession (information changed so I don't get e-stalked):

(I just read the TINFOIL HAT thread floating around, hence the deletion of my criminal history statement.)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT Timers

Get a $2 timer from walmart.  Take out the 4 screws that hold the back on.  Cut and remove the two wires going to the speaker/beeper with your fingernail clippers.  Assembly is reverse of removal.  If you screw it up, you're out two bucks.

I had 12 d's in my 1st LR section

Studying for the LSAT / Re: better under pressure?
« on: September 20, 2005, 08:36:28 PM »
Definitely.  There is a test mind lock that happens whenever the real event rolls around.  It happened in college, on the EIT, PE, and the first time I took the LSAT.  It's normal and helpful, and makes an 8 hour test seem like 1.

Studying for the LSAT / LR Bible: More harm than good.
« on: September 17, 2005, 09:37:47 PM »
Is it just me, or has studying the LR Bible caused you to slow down, overanalyze, and dissect every LR question.  I think I did better when I went on intuition.  I wish I'd never heard of a sufficent condition.

Now, I'm looking for conditional reasoning in the RC sections without thinking about it.
