Hey Folks,I am a newbie here at LSD and I am taking the first steps towards making myself a competitive law school applicant.I just completed the first two years of my undergraduate career at UCLA. So far my grades are okay (3.821 overall GPA) and I am hoping to use the last two years of my undergrad to get my GPA over the 3.90 mark (just 0.08 more points).I have really strong soft factors thus far (Several internships, research fellowships, teaching experience - i have TAed and taught a class, and I have several community involvement). I know it soft factors doesn't mean much but I have that going for me as well. Furthermore, I have a unique life upbringing (which I will be talking about in my PS) and I already have ID the three professors I want my recs to come from (two are beasts in their fields, both have endowed chairs, and one is going to be my honors thesis advisor). So everything is staged for me to make into the top-14 right? No...THE LSAT...is the one part of my application I have some concern about. I have historically been a average test taker and I never took standardized tests seriously, like my SAT was something I didn't study for but did okay on 1940/2400 or for you older folks that is a 1240/1600.So I am going into my junior year, with hopes of making into law school for fall 2011. How should I attack this LSAT exam. I am going to be taking a diagnostic after the end of this post. However, while I am certain I won't do well out of the box, is it possible to train yourself to get a 165+ lsat score? Is this a LSAT something that I can master even if I suck at standardized tests? I am really scared because I keep flipping through some of these posts and I see individuals with poor scores on the real LSAT (150-159), and I don't want to be one of those indviduals, I am want the highest score possible (180). I don't care if it takes me the rest of this year, next year to master this test. I want a bombass score.Ahhh...I am so worried starting this LSAT prep process...I am going to go take my diagnostic
154...Blueprint had issues with reading my score after the diagnostic...they said they would email it and i got my official diag. score two days ago.I really am not discouraged because I am only 11 points away from my min. target score. My shippment of LSDAS prep books came in today (the 10 actual series).I also got the first Powerscore Bible from a friend. The games were my strong suit however I am gonna focus first on that section to improve timing. Just need to find the best study regiment for the next year and a half...i am aiming to take the LSAT December 2009 or Febuary 2010 (Got some time)
