MEP and LSAT...02.21.2010This weekend has been eventful. Today I helped out with the Minority Engineering Program by attending a luncheon with prospective students and their parents. I spoke with the high school student I sat next to and his mother, and just shared a little about myself, my future goals, and why I chose UD. I informed them that I chose UD partly because my mom, aunts, uncle and cousin all went here and because of their stellar engineering program. Listening to some of the new programs they have in place for incoming minority engineers reinforced what I had told them. There is a new program for admitted students where they come on campus for 6 weeks in the summer before they start at UD and make $1500!!!!! If I had that opportunity when I was an incoming freshman I would have jumped right on it. It's good to see that the MEP program is flourishing and adding new incentives to attract underrepresented engineering students. I also told the prospective student about my goal of getting into a quality law school. I told him how I took the practice LSAT yesterday and how I'm really motivated to do well. Since the possible job outlook for law school students is strongly determined on LSAT scores and first year performance, I need to do well on this test. I have a Kaplan study book and I plan on attending all free practice tests that I can. I'm signed up for another practice test March 3rd (the day before my 21st birthday!!!!) and I'm practicing some of the techniques I'm learning in my study book. I've been told that to do well on the LSAT one just needs to know how to approach the problems and take many practice tests, so that's what I plan to do.
