First generation college student and hopefully law student
Upward grade trend
Worked full time 40 hours all throughout college career and it was NOT easy but I made it through.
Ethnically diverse (Haitian/Dominican/African American) and have faced economic disadvantages as well
Plan on taking the June 09' LSAT, wish me luck and good luck to all who are preparing for the upcoming cycle.
thinking about pushing back my test date. I do not feel remotely prepared and have not been able to adequately devote hard core time to it either. Been busy with a full load of classes, working and preparing for graduation. this sucks! but on the bright side, at lease I'll be able to have 3 more months to study.
Still in the midst of my lsat prep. feeling a little better than i did than earlier in the year when prepping for June. Taking another prep test today.
Sent off transcript request to all of my schools to send to lsac. Hope the process doesn't take too long. Asked profs for LORs also and I should be getting those within a month. Any idea how long lsdas takes to process this kinda stuff?
All transcripts received and currently being processed by lsac. anxious to see what that GPA is gonna be since I had an major upward grade trend. Also nervous about the September test. Seriously considering pushing it back for a second time. I know this is crazy but I only want to take this damn thing once.
Got my lsdas gpa and i knew it would be lower than my degree gpa but dizamnnn... I better really work some magic on the damn test if I want any shot to a decent law school :- (
Just took the lsat. dont feel too good or too bad about it. got through most of the sections without any time issues. depending on how this one went, my testing site may see me again in december.
Got several fee waivers today. Thank the lord cause I am dead ass broke. lol
Did some tours at American and Catholic today. American was in a nice neighborhood. Ppl were friendly but just got an "ok" vibe about it all. Catholic surprisingly seemed a lot warmer. Felt a little weird about the crucifix in every classroom but whatever... Overall, a very productive day.
OMG! I want my scores. The anxiety is killing me. I need to know if I'm gonna have to hit the bibles books again. When I say I absolutely hate this test, I'm not kidding. I may even burn these books once I'm done with the entire process. Gotta make sure I get accepted somewhere 1st. lol
Registered for the Dec. lsat for obvious reasons. Paid extra for registering late which sucks. This whole process can get really expensive really quick. Plan on cramming @ least 15 hours in a week from here on out. I really need a miracle!
Finally pushing some apps out. I hope it's not too late and I'm honestly not that optimistic. I've already decided that if it doesn't work out this cycle, I'll do some research abroad, travel to some new places and then reapply (early next time) for the 2011. To late to stress @ this point.
