Canadian Law Students / BAR BRI NILE
« on: December 31, 2005, 10:00:48 AM »
I am curious as to how applicable the material learned in the Bar Bri Nile 1st year prep course would be to Canadian students.  I realize that the test taking strategies will be useful but wonder how useful a lot of the rest of the course would be given its focus on US law.  Is there much overlap?  Is the course mainly theoretical?

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT/School?Work

I'm a little curious.
1. What was your score?
2. How many hours a week were you studying in the final 4-6 weeks prior to your test?
3. What was your course-load, or work-load (full- or part-time) during your studying?

Canadian Law Students / UBC? Should I bother?
« on: December 25, 2005, 10:02:24 PM »
My top LSAT (which is used at UBC) is 162/87th, and my GPA for my last 2 years is 3.63.  Could anyone with better knowledge of the school tell me what my chances are?  From looking at their website I don't seem to stand a very good chance, but some people are telling me to give it a shot?  Any thoughts?
Much appreciated,

Studying for the LSAT / Writing sample - your post-test thoughts
« on: December 23, 2005, 02:58:24 PM »
For those who have received their score and their online documents, have you reviewed your writing sample?  If so, how do you feel about it? Would you still take the same side you took on test day?  Have you changed?

Studying for the LSAT / my score no joke

I SWEAR this is real...

Studying for the LSAT / posting pictures

How do you post pictures from your harddrive (as opposed to online images)? or can you even do this?

Studying for the LSAT / 170->180
« on: December 18, 2005, 04:03:20 PM »
I was wondering why so many people (on here at least - VERY representative of the pool...haha) appear to rewrite with a ~170 hoping for a bit higher.  From 170 up you are in the top 2 percentiles.  For "index score only" schools, is the percentile or the score used in the formula?

Studying for the LSAT / Questions dropped
« on: December 13, 2005, 11:51:10 AM »
OK this may be a stupid question, but if questions are found to be flawed and dropped, does that mean if you got that question correct you lose 1 point (go from 80 of 101, to 79 of 100)? or are the flawed questions just dropped from the total possible (go from 80 of 101, to 80 of 100)?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / LSAT/GPA Grid
« on: December 12, 2005, 11:52:44 AM »
Does anyone know of some good law school grids showing your chances of admission given a certain GPA/LSAT, and/or grids that show the average GPA/LSAT for each school?

Thanks for the help!
