Law School Admissions / Re: how much to reveal?

I think that overall simply mentioning "health problems" is the appropriate and tactical choice.  Don't worry about the admissions officers assuming that your health problems were from some crack addiction problem or something negative - there is a tactical way to phrase anything.  I am assuming that you are female from the fact that you have struggled with an eating disorder (I apologize if you are male) and it seems reasonable that "health problems" could represent any number of "female" problems that someone wouldn't want to disclose in detail.  Of course, there is always the possibility of sending a statement with the whole story to one school and then another one that just mentions "health problems" to another school.

Law School Admissions / Re: October Lsat Fee Waivers

Does anyone know if those of us who took the LSAT in October will still get fee waivers for the next year's cycle (i.e. mailed out in August of the next year)?

Choosing the Right Law School / In-State Advantages
« on: July 25, 2005, 08:26:00 PM »

After I finished my LSAT last October, I immediately realized that there was one thing that I should have done differently while I was studying.  Later, I felt the irresistable urge to impart this information to anyone about to take the LSAT, hoping to help anyone else (who was interested) to possibly improve his/her score by even a few points...

When taking my practice tests, I always allotted myself exactly 35 minutes (and I even rounded up as I didn't use a second hand) to take each section.  After I took the test, I realized that if I had had just a minute or two more on each section, it would have probably improved my score.  I think that when you are practicing, it is a good idea to set your timer for 32 or 33 minutes instead of 35, to get used to a shorter time and then to have those extra minutes to your advantage when you are taking the actual LSAT, as you will undoubtedly be more nervous and in more unfamiliar territory than you were when you took your practice tests.

Hope this helps someone out there  :)
