Job Search / Re: Studying for the BAR, huge DEBT, no JOB, WHAT DO DO?
« Last post by LSDSL on Today at 11:11:27 AM »
OP here chiming in YEARS after my initial post.  In my prior post, I stated that I got a judicial clerkship working at the trial court level.  I ended up having that job for about 4 years.  Since then, I managed to leverage that position into an elbow clerk position with a justice at the appellate court.  The benefits are great, the hours are great, and the pay is respectable!  Perhaps my favorite part is that I am now 1/2 of the way to having all my law school debt forgiven under PSLF. 

To anyone reading this who is as desperate as I was back when I started this thread-- Keep your head up!  Good things WILL come if you work at it.   Best of Luck, everyone!

Law School Admissions / LSAT Score Improvement
« Last post by Lolobev on October 12, 2017, 02:23:11 AM »
Im having difficulty with the LSAT and I thought maybe I could hear stories like mine or advice on how to improve my score. I originally took the LSAT in June and I received a 149. I automatically re-registered for the exam in Sept. I used the Manhattan books and Powerscore, and I was showing great improvement on my PT scores (mid to high 150's). Everytime I took a PT I would use an app for proctoring (didn't  I do the 5 sections though) then I would review types of answers I got wrong, and used YouTube for LGames explanations. When test day came I felt more confident on the exam so I assumed that my studying had paid off. But today I received my results... I DID WORSE. I received a 142. I'm at my wit's end don't know where I went wrong. Someone please help!

Law School Admissions / Re: Law school admission procedure

Buying essays for submission is completely unethical, and will likely result in your son getting rejected from law school.

Your son, not you, should be doing the research on what is required for admission.
