Minority Topics / Hispanic Applicants
« on: August 02, 2005, 10:19:17 PM »
I'm a hispanic hoping to apply to the top law schools (my list includes Columbia, Harvard, Chicago, Georgetown, and maybe Yale and Stanford, among some other schools).  I have a 3.75 GPA from Swarthmore, and will be studying abroad all next year at Oxford (which while common for some applicants, is hardly typical of hispanic applicants).  What score should I aim for on the LSAT?  Rather, what score range would help my chances of gaining admission to these schools?  I'm currently enrolled in a Testmasters course in NYC, so I'm working on doing as well on the LSAT as possible, yet I would like to know what LSAT score I should hope for.  Also, how are hispanics considered by adcoms?  While some people might cynically group all URM's together, it is obvious that hispanic applicants are not given as much leway with GPA/LSAT scores as are black applicants, though they are given more leway than white applicants. 

Law School Applications / Difference Between Hold/Defer/Waitlist
« on: August 02, 2005, 09:44:24 AM »
Can someone please explain the difference between a Hold, a Deferral, and being placed on the waitlist?  Also, I have heard of some applicants who, while not accepted for the incoming class of a given law school, have been offered admission to the following year's entering class.  Where does that fit in?  Is it any of the afformentioned types of admission status, or is it something else?

Studying for the LSAT / Most Difficult Logic Games
« on: July 29, 2005, 09:35:09 PM »
I just got through the first lesson's homework for TM.  The logic games homework problems were all pure sequencing problems, which were extremely easy.  Are pure sequencing games the easiest?  Which are the most difficult?  I'm sure I'll find out soon enough, but I'm curious.

Studying for the LSAT / computerized study aids
« on: July 26, 2005, 04:16:27 PM »
Does anyone know of any high-quality (not Barron's, etc) computer programs that allow you to study for the LSAT?  I have a Kaplan cd-rom, but the problem with Kaplan is that they don't use actual LSAT questions or exams.  I'd prefer something that includes real LSAT questions and/or full-length exams.  Any suggestions?
