Choosing the Right Law School / LOCI Questions
« on: April 13, 2009, 09:18:43 AM »
Tomorrow I am going to visit a school that I am currently waitlisted at. I have heard alot on these boards about Letters of Continued Interest and that they are a good idea to write for visits such as this. I was hoping that someone could give a bit more direction on what should go in a letter like this and who it should be given to? I realize that it is kind of self-explanatory, that you should explain to the school that you still would like to attend their program in the future but is there anything else that should be in this letter?

Law School Admissions / Calling...

I just had a question. I think that its frowned upon, but I just want to check to make sure...I have a few friends who sent in apps to similar schools a bit after me with similar stats and have heard back from said schools over the past 2 or 3 weeks. I however, despite sending out the apps and going complete earlier, have not heard back. Would it be entirely bad to call the admissions office and question the status of my applications? Thanks!!

Law School Admissions / Brooklyn Notification...

I just had a question for any of you who have previously been accepted/rejected/waitlisted from Brooklyn Law School. I am currently waiting to hear back from my early decision application that I submitted to Brooklyn. I was just wondering in what way they contact you to give their decision, be it email or snail mail...

Thanks to anyone who has an answer! Hope everyone had a good holiday...

This is a first draft of my first attempted PS. I don't know if im going to use this one, but could use some feedback from an outside source! Any help would be appreciated!


Choosing the Right Law School / Fall 09 Chances...
« on: July 20, 2008, 05:48:33 PM »
I know everyone has seen a million of these threads, but I just wanted to thow my hat into the pot and see what people say.

I go to a state school (Binghamton) in upstate NY. Bunch of internships in DA offices and other law offices. 3.5 GPA. 157 LSAT in June (Going to retake in Oct because my practice scores average around a 164).

Im looking to apply to schools in major metropolitan areas. I was thinking about applying to the following:

New York Law
St Johns
George Washington

I know that my chances at a bunch of these schools are pending a better result on my Oct LSAT which I am hoping for, but just looking for some thoughts on my choices. Also if you have any other schools to consider id appreciate it.


Law School Admissions / Multiple LSAT Scores

I was just wondering if there was a listing anywhere that displays which schools average the multiple LSAT scores/which ones take the higher score?


Studying for the LSAT / Fall Plan of Action...
« on: July 03, 2008, 03:24:56 PM »
So probably like a few of you on this board, I was not happy with my June LSAT score. I was getting my practice tests between 163-169 without fail, and on the actual test I scored a 159. I really know that I can do better then this and plan on preparing myself accordingly for the October 4th test...

I had been studying for 3/4 months before the June test, devoting a good amount of time to the test each week. I plan on ordering the Logical Reasoning Bible for help in that area, but otherwise does anyone have any reco's for a study plan. I dont know if I have it in me to devote the amount of time I was doing before hand, but I realize that I need to do a good amount of studying to keep myself fresh for the October test.

With all that said, any help that can be offered from you guys would be great.

Thanks, and I hope the rest of you who took the June administration faired as well as you hoped!

Studying for the LSAT / Monday and your Cell Phone
« on: June 15, 2008, 07:14:06 AM »
I know that your not supposed to bring your Cell Phone to the test site techincally, but I was wondering what would happen if I did? I am taking a train into NYC (I live 25-30 min outside NYC) to take the test at Fordham Law, and it would really be beneficially for me to have my phone with me? Do they just take the phone away and give it back to you afterwards? Can I just leave it with the proctor at the front of the room? Thanks...

*Good luck to anyone else taking it on Monday*
