I am really considering taking this AAMPLE. Sure, I'll need to pay about 2 twice what it would take for me to go take ANOTHER LSAT classs and application fees and the test however, it would get me into Law School once I pass it (and believe me I'm going to spend EVERY waking minute on AAMPLE), instead of paying essentially the same total amount and maybe get the same scores, and still wind up with the chance of not getting anywhere


#1. You don't need to take a class. You just need to keep at the LSAT prep/studying. Cost of a few books + retake is a fraction of the cost of AAMPLE. Plus you could go from an AAMPLE candidate to getting a large scholarship at the same school. Retaking could save you 10s of thousands.

#2. Both AAMPLE and retaking the LSAT would only give you a CHANCE at getting into law school. You could go to AAMPLE and not pass. Some of the AAMPLE schools have ridiculously low pass rates. Retaking the LSAT is a much less risky move and has much higher potential upside reward.

My point stands. It's a far better use of your time to spend every waking minute on the LSAT- not AAMPLE.

Firstly, you need to be invited to do AAMPLE, you cannot elect to take it.

A friend of mine said he wishes he had taken AAMPLE becos some of the ppl who took it were doing better in law school, maybe it prepares you better.

Secondly, it may be the only option. I took the LSAT 3 times and could not get above 144, I do wish I had taken a structured LSAT course, that might have saved me 000's and maybe gotten me some scholarship $$'s, but I didn't and this is my only real option now. Going to Nova.

This thread is filled to the brim with blatant AAMBLE program shills. Probably all from Charlotte.

Heinous anti-St. Thomas trolling.

But I'm sure the debate between the two could fill several pages worth.

I'm in a bind here. Part of me wants to ask questions about the nature/make-up of these programs (I'm surprised more law schools don't try to make money this way), because I'm sort of curious. Yet, in so doing, I would expose myself to the potential of falling victim to a somewhat sophisticated troll. On the other hand, if I immediately dismiss out of hand those espousing an interest in these kind of programs as trolls or shills, I risk coming across as an elitist denigrating those who might be legitimately considering a program like this.

So, let me just say, if anyone is so dedicated/dead-set on becoming a lawyer that he or she would consider a program like this, that person should be dedicated enough at least to exhaust all LSAT retake possibilities.

No law school worth going to offers AAMPLE. If they did, there would be more talk about it, and probably an article in the main admissions page.

Hello. I was denied admission to the fall class at Florida Coastal School of Law and they sent me an invitation to the AAMPLE program I applied and for some reason assumed that the invitation meant that I wouldn't be denied but now it seems that they may not be accepting me into the AAMPLE program even... would they do that? Invite me to the AAMPLE program but not let me in? please get back to me.
Thanks

It would be a blessing if they did. Please, please avoid AAMPLE and any school that has it.

Seems to me these schools should just admit aample candidates straight away, especially in the face of declining enrollments. It's so funny that a law school whose median is like 147 or 149 or some other number below the average test-taker's ability would suggest that there are some applicants "whose outright admission to law school is questionable." MOST of your admits are "questionable" if you are using the LSAT as a measure, and clearly they are -- so just stop dorking around and admit the whole lot.

Damn. How many questions do you gave to miss to get a 147 anyway?
