***I FINALLY HEARD FROM DAYTON TODAY I GOT REJECTED***

I finally got a letter from Thomas Cooley I got in to their Professional Exploration Program. The program will be for a week, and if all goes well I can start in January 06. :-) However, I don't want to put much weight on that, so just in case I might retake the LSAT in October (just considering) one week before I am suppose to leave. If anyone has any Publications that would help me in studying for the LSAT PLEASE LET ME KNOW. Thanks so Much.

When you feel like giving up remember this; an actor doesn't just AUDITION for a lead part in a movie and get it on his/her first try. They have to keep auditioning just like you have to KEEP STUDYING OR APPLYING. Imagine, where would Tom Cruise be if he only auditioned one time for a part he didn't get.

I know one thing I'm not giving up not yet!

LSAT
Wednesday, August 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

My LSAT score may not be very high at all, but to be honest I am not good at taking standardized test of any kind. I do know that I will be academically if given the chance to do well in law school. Furthermore, law schools should not just accept people based solely on their LSAT score there should be some kind of balance between the GPA and LSAT. I'm sure that others with a high GPA and low LSAT score can agree with me. ~ Thanks Crissy00

Bad at test as well
Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

I wish you luck in getting into law school . I am horrible at taking test and I will keep my fingers crossed for you

I agree with you Crissy
Thursday, June 30 2005 at 08:00 PM

I agree about the LSAT. Check out my profile and see more about how much I think about how f*cked up the LSAT really is and the fact that it DOES NOT really measure what it's supposed to measure. I don't do well on standardized tests, either. I tried the LSAT twice and only increased 3 points. The fact of the matter is it's a completely biased test. There is NO MATH on the test whatsoever and so people that are good at math are at a complete disadvantage. Math is my strongpoint and I've never done well on reading comprehension or verbal tests. So anyway, good luck to you. I myself did get accepted to a couple of schools, but do not think I will be attending next year, because I got into no schools I wanted to attend at all and this whole bullsh*t LSAT thing has me so pissed off, I've about had it!

I spoke to Cooley today they told me that was below the norm and I would be getting Letter. They have a 10 day program it is for the Jan 2006 class. She told me you have a test at the end and if you pass your admited. I would call them up and check into it if you want . Do you have a LD beacause if you can take the LSAT with extra time. I hope this was helpful marty

Update
Wednesday, August 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

Supposedly I am still on the wait list. Marty if you are going to the 10 day program in October I very well may get to meet you cause I am all signed up to go. Still confused on whether or not I should retake the LSAT or not....?

I was rejected for admission . I will not be going to the summer program .

Retake it
Monday, August 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

I understand your frustration that law schools place such a heavy emphasis on the LSAT. I don't like it as well, but you really need to consider retaking it. I am awful at standardized tests, i took the SAT 4 times to get a good score to go to my University of choice. You are obviously a good student; a 3.35 at any college is fantastic. You are way too good of a student to allow this low score to get in the way. I studied, and took several practice tests months before the LSAT, and I was able to pull off a 159. If I can do it, so can you. Retake it, and try again next year with an explanation of your first lsat score on all your apps.

retaking the LSAT
Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

if your thinking of retaking the LSAT I still have a bunch of books from my Princeton Reveiw test class . If you need them I could make copies for you and send them to you . I got waited lised at TJLS but i hope i get into CUNY Law School . . Well hope all is well with you

ME TOO!!!!
Thursday, August 11 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hi Crissy, I also have a 135. I started applying before my score came back I am sure that there will be a bunch of rejections, but I am willing to retest in Oct. I hope that I can get atleast a 150. I am going to take Powerscore, I really never got a chance to study. But this time I will. Good Luck to you; your post has really encouraged me to hang in there. I do not test very well either. The LSAT is biased, there are things on that test that the average person would not even think of. It's obvious it doesn't test your ability to pass law school or even practice law. Just look at Johnnie Cochran and Willie Gary, they never even had to take it in their day.

I'm right there with you!!
Sunday, August 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

Sorry I just sent the other one and didn't sign in. Anyway I'll say it again. I got a 135 Also. I'm right with you. I am retaking the LSAt in October and will be reapplying to different schools like Cooley. I will pray for you if you all pray for me. I totally agree with what you have said. I really think this is total bullshit. I graduated magna Cum laude and can't believe I am having to deal with this. Thank you all for giving me some inspiration. I will keep you posted if you promise to keep me posted as well.

We're gonna make it

How are things?
Sunday, August 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

How are things going??? Did you every get into cooley?? I retook the LSAT. and am sending again! I got a monster school list. Good luck on everything:)

I'd try the LSAT again...
Friday, June 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hi there - I don't know if you're still looking for a law school home, but if you are, I'd plan to take the test again. However, I would make sure that you prepare effectively for this second test - to ensure that you get a better result this time. I'm not sure how you prepared the first time, but you CAN improve with practice - especially the right kind of practice. The PowerScore books are very good, and cover much of the material from the course. If you have the opportunity, I would take either the PowerScore or Testmasters course (they are essentially the same method) and DO ALL THE HOMEWORK, and ask questions of the instructor when you get stuck on a concept. Don't get discouraged if you don't get it right away - it's not easy and takes practice to master, but it DOES work. Don't dismiss my advice after you look at my profile. While it's true that I am lucky enough to be good at standardized tests and was only in the PowerScore course because I was aiming for a perfect score, several of my classmates were in your position. Some of those gave up in frustration in the middle of the course - as I say, it takes practice, and does not "kick in" right away, so they gave up. A pity, because those who hung in there and kept working at it improved dramtically - like from mid 130s to the mid-150s, and one friend of mine from the class even went from 135 to 161 the next time she took the test! And, got into her first choice school! (Awesome, because no school at all took her on her first round of applications.) Sorry this is so long , but I was personally inspired by my PowerScore classmates and the amazing progress that they made. I thought you might like to hear their stories too. Good luck! :)

LSAT
Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

I am not going to take the LSAT again. I am trying to get into this Special program at ST. Jonhs Law School. I hope you have a nice holiday and I wish you a happy new year.

LSAT blows!
Friday, September 23 2005 at 08:00 PM

Crissy, I just logged on here and have been studying for the LSAT...I've bought all the powerscore stuff and it works exceptionally well....bottom line....don't let this lame test question your abilities

Hello
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

Crissy00, I just wanted to drop a few lines of encouragement your way. This is my second time around. So, I know exactly what you are going through. I too had a poor 1st score and gained 6 points on my second try. It may seem so impossible to improve, but it is. I am a prime example of that. Heck, you may do better than I did on your second try. I said that to say this. Don't give up. I could not take a course, but I studied at home using the LSAC's old tests. I admit, I didn't have much time to devote to it considering my responsibilities. However, I can only image what the increase would have been if I had the time. Practice and you'll see that you too can do it. Also, depsite the low scores I am among those who scored high and will be going to law school this Fall. As Kirk Franklin would say "Be encouraged BOO"

Plan
Wednesday, August 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

I plan on taking the LSAT again within the next year, but not without the help of powerscore or test masters. If anyone has taken either one of them will you let me know? Thanks

unbalance
Monday, February 20 2006 at 07:00 PM

I agree that the LSAT and GPA should be balanced more and that law schools use the LSAT too heavily. However, to be honest...your GPA isn't exactly HIGH. Heck even mine (3.55) isn't high. I think you would have had a much better shot as a splitter if your GPA was in the 3.8 area. Good luck next year. I took the Kaplan LSAT course and I don't recommend it b/c they didn't teach time management AT ALL. Take care.

Cooley
Monday, February 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hi! thanks for responding. If you can, can you please tell me some information? Thank you! You'll be able to see my email if you log in. GL to you if you will be attending Cooley... I haven't heard if I got in yet =X

hey
Monday, March 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

just some advice, i was reading though it. dont take a kaplan course whatever you do. my score dropped as a result of their class and their approach. if you can, buy lsat for dummies. it brought my practice score up 10 points. it sounds dumb to buy the book, but it is the best ive read. note though, there practice tests are slightly easier then the real ones, but you can always do that first and order real tests from lsac. good luck :) i think you can do it
