Hello everyone! I'm applying for this admissions cycle for fall 2011. My top choice is University of Baltimore. I'm taking the LSAT in december and hope for the best. I have been studying for the LSAT since 2008, took it last year, and got a low score of 145. Unfortunately my score hasn't really gone up significantly, but I have been working with a tutor and he has given me some helpful pointers. Good luck to everyone who is applying this year! Feel free to post any comments, but please be respectful. I would love to hear from anyone in the same boat as me who is applying part time.
12/2: Only a week until doomsday. I am freaking out. I don't feel like I've done enough practice exams....
In terms of schools to apply to, I am thinking of applying only to UB. It seems like the most realistic choice to me and it is a up and coming school with great clinical opportunities for part time students
Does anybody know how many times the LSAT can be taken? I heard you can't take it more than 3 times in 2 years.
12/14: Dec LSAT was a disaster for me. The first section went well and it was downhill after that. I felt like time was flying past faster than when I did the practice exams! LG sucked. I even had trouble with the 1st one, and ended up guessing on 3 games. I am thinking of canceling, it will look really bad if I do worse than a 145. LR and RC was a blur. I never had time to read the last passage.
2/24: Got a 143 on the december 2010 LSAT. It was a big disappointment. I'm not sure if I'm cut out for law but it is what I've always wanted to do. I may take the October 2011 test but I'm still not sure and now I have to see my options. I hope everyone gets into their school of choice.
Thank you for posting on my page.
Are you retaking this December?
I am considering to cancel the registration for December and take a year off to study. I'm doing practice exams and reading the famous bibles.
I wish you the best!
I visited UDC a week ago and sent my application in for the part-time program about the same time. Your grades look strong and you do have good extracurriculars. If you are retaking the LSAT i recommend the Powerscore books, really helpful. Kaplan didnt work to well for me. i hope i have a fighting chance at UDC parttime. In my app i emphasized how i wanted to practice in the area and how i liked the clinical program for real world experience. I am middle eastern, i hoped minority status may help but... i had to check white since there wasnt any other options lol. Goodluck! Mayb see you at UDC
Hey, I took the LSAT multiple times and I know how stressful it can be, I think you can only take the test 3 times in 2 years and if you want to take it for a 4th time you have to petition the school your interested in or something like that, Good luck with the test!!!!!
Thanks for posting on my wall. I hope your test went well. I feel really good about mine. :) I posted an update on my page if you want to check it out -and - added you to my watch-list. :)
Thank you for the well-wishes! You know - the crappy thing is, I have taken the LSAT twice and I got the same dang score both times! It was strange - the second time I took it I was testing around 158-160 for the month prior to the test, but on the day of the test I BOMBED again! So, for fear that will happen again, I don't think I'll retake the LSAT, but take my chances. Good luck with your school of choice! I hope you get in!
Hey, sorry it took so long to get back to you. Yes, I am retaking the LSAT (February). I am hoping that I can get into Ubalt part time evening. Good luck with everything...maybe we will be in the same class at Ubalt
Please don't get discouraged. Remember that we are smarter than the LSAT!
We will kick butts the first year and transfer to a great school.
