ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

March 2008: will begin studying for LSAT/GMAT (In the hopes of taking the tests in June and July consecutively..advise if you think this is too much)

Sept 2008: Okay, I did not start studying as early as I intended, but I am still taking the LSAT in October...two weeks to go..!!

So I "chickened" out of taking the LSAT in October. I was so nervous that I would not get the minimum score that I am aiming for, but with the encouragement from family and friends, I WILL be taking the December test. I am definitely not taking the GMAT because I'm so overwhelmed right now.

November 2008: I emailed Northwestern for an interview and received the contact information for my advisor. I am waiting for a call back to set up the interview day and location.
November 7th: My interview for Northwestern has been set for the 14th.

I'm applying this fall...When you say 2007 cycle, does that mean you're applying this fall or next fall? Anyway, keep me posted on your progress so I can cheer for you when you get into Northwestern!

All you need to do is take as many practice tests as you can. Purchase the Princeton review and the Kaplan book for some additional help. Good Luck!!

I'm thinking of doing some sort of Law & Economics too! To answer your question about the LSAT- I prepared on my own, mostly by doing practice tests (all timed). I also used the Logic Games Bible and Kaplan 180, both of which I'd recommend (even thought the LG Bible is overpriced).

Good luck to you as well! The only LSAT tips I have are practice with real timed tests, and don't freak out. I also think constantly checking a timer will freak you out more than it will help you, so I'd just bring a small wristwatch to the test instead of one of those crazy giant LSAT timers. :) Oh, and I used Kaplan's LSAT 180 for practicing specific question types in between taking timed preptests. It was definitely helpful.

If I don't stop by again before the test, good luck next Saturday if you are taking in September. Just relax and you will do fine.

Yeah, Columbia has a lot to offer but Im concerned about the cost of living. Plus I have no chance at w/ a merit based scholarship due to my GPA. Best of luck to you, especially if you're taking the LSAT right now.

GULC, NW, CHI, and UW are all great schools. Im actually applying to all but UW (simply b/c I dont like rain). I hear that NW and Chicago offer lots of scholarships to try to entice people to leave the coasts. I especially like Chicagos quarter system.

Do the practice LSATs and work on getting the timing down. Best of luck if you haven't yet taken it!

Thanks for the wishes...I've only listed 2 schools as I wish to stay local. But I might expand my horizons! Good luck to you as well!

I work for Kaplan, but recommend Testmasters or Powerscore.

Hey I think you should just study your ass off. Learn each section to a T. I know it sucks but if you dedicate 3-4 months to this you wont need to worry about it again. Powerscore, Testmasters are great ones. But you really just need to know the test and I think you can do it if it's really what you want!!

Isn\'t important, don\'t worry about that, just kill the LSAT.

Thanks for the well wishes; I'm going to need the luck. Congratulations, and I hope you enjoyed your Nov 14th interview! As for December, take comfort in the knowledge that your peers are just as nervous about the LSAT.

For the well wishes. Hope your LSAT goes well; resume looks similar to mine. I volunteered for an on-campus church group!
