PT scores- 158, 164
-planning on taking the LSAT either DEC 2010; FEB 2011

PT score today- 171! hell yeah!
- really counting on my lsat to be one of those magical numbers T14 schools see and put down "ACCEPTED" even with my lame gpa.

continuing my research on the schools I have become attracted to for various reasons... today: Notre Dame- i've noticed that if I can make at least a 170 there is a great possibility of a scholarship of at least $60K... and the research continues...

after several weeks of insane thoughts rolling around my head I've decided to add USC to my application pool... I'm not entirely sure whether I'd dig living on the west coast, but I figure I should at least apply... good bye for now

Sure, I'm happy to help. While few things are certain in the law school admissions process, here is something you can count on: doing well on the LSAT as a minority is like winning the lottery. Study as hard as you possible can (and feel free to let me know if you'd like tips) and do you're best. Beyond that, applying before Thanksgiving is like another soft factor. Make sure to have your recommendations and essays in and ready to go come the start of the next cycle. Good luck!!

Thanks for the shout out! As far as extracurriculars are concerned, I did four years on a committee for a student-run philanthropy at my school, as well as RA. It definitely helped to have work experience when it came to Northwestern. I would also echo the comments above and say study your butt off for the LSAT and apply early, it'll pay off =). Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions!

Good Luck

Thanks for the nice message. And good luck with your LSAT and apps. If you need any advice let me know. I had a lot of good help with my cycle Kirk

Thanks for the note! Best advice anyone gave me: only give yourself 32 minutes per section when practicing and don't take the test until you're sure you'll ace it. Good luck!
