Job Search / Re: Studying for the BAR, huge DEBT, no JOB, WHAT DO DO?
« Last post by LSDSL on October 16, 2017, 10:11:27 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!

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT Score Improvement
« Last post by Lolobev on October 12, 2017, 01:23:11 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.

Harvey Weinstein and the Democrats tsk tsk

Live by the sword die by the sword.

I think we are going to get another 4 years of Donald trump as president.

Keep fucxking with the snowflakes heads. Say no to political correctness and racist bigoted identity politics!

I turned in my democrat registration card after the first World Trade Center explosions back in 1992 when Bill Clinton did nothing to shore up ports and borders. We knew the fundamentalists would return and billy bob Clinton did not.
No wonder his wife lost.

Bar Exam Preparation / Failed Part A of the July 2017 FL Bar Exam by 1 Point
« Last post by functionial drunk on September 28, 2017, 08:00:29 AM »
I failed part A of the FL bar exam by one point. My scoring breakdown is as follows:

(1) 25.5 on dependency law essay, mean score was a 38.7;
(2) 55.5 on FL Con Law essay, mean score was a 52.1;
(3) 53 on Secured Transactions and Commercial Paper essay, mean score was a 35.1;
(4) 14/30 correct on FL Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure, mean score was a 17.9;
(5) 17/30 correct on Business Entities, mean score was a 17.2;
(6) 14/30 correct on Wills and Administration of Estates, mean score was a 17.5;

My raw score was a 179 which scaled out to a 135  :-[

My main question is what are my chances of the Florida Bar giving me a point since I submitted them a letter asking them to review my scores? It is utter BS that they awarded me half a point on both sections (1) and (2) of the essays instead of a full point. With half a point on each of those I pass. Also I never studied Articles 3 and 9 of the UCC and somehow my grade on essay (3) was the most impressive. 

I bombed the MBE with a 121. I am addressing that problem by buying adaptibar for $500. Hopefully next time I can pass the MBE easily.

Last question is, is it a good idea to work part time and study for the bar? I found a government agency that is willing to hire me part time. It is not paid yet but hopefully it will lead to a paid job. I just don't want blank spaces on my resume after I studied for the July bar exam without working. Now that I am sitting for the February bar exam I think I can manage a job for 20 hours a week and still manage to get some good studying in.

In summary:
Question (1) Is there even the slightest chance the FL Bar will give me a point on a regrade or was submitting the regrade request a waste of time?
Question (2) Is it a good idea to study for the bar with a part time job?

Law School Admissions / Will I be accepted by Taft Law School
« Last post by accjohn1990 on September 27, 2017, 06:59:20 PM »
Background
I have four previous law school attendances (Brooklyn, Brooklyn, Thomas Jefferson, California Western). The second attendance at Brooklyn LS I did not attend at all, or even go to brooklyn. But, they have insisted that it counts as a previous law school attendance

Now
I have completed 9 credits in an online MBA program with a 4.0 gpa. I have 21 credits left.

Goals
I would like to go solo as a disability benefits attorney. I am on disability myself and i would like to help others in similar situations.  I have a passion for disability law and i have helped a friend receive 3 years of disability back payments and increased their benefits for the future

Will I be Accepted?
I have a 152LSAT and a 3.3 GPA. Will my success in my MBA program help me get approved? I know i was getting rejected by aba approved schools due to the number of previous law schools i have attended. Will my consistency and commitment in my current program show them that i am now dependable? I spoke to Taft Law School and they sounded very positive, but then balked when i told them i am currently in a mba program and would like to start once i am done with my mba. They advised me to contact them once i completed the program.
