Legos don't count as models brah, unless you're under the age of 12. They're just toys.

I don't agree, your view is valid but its not the only perspective on a legal education.

wtf? it isn't a matter of opinion

I don't even wanna talk about it. Months of 8 hour days, 2 prep classes, every PT, Bibles and like 40 books later here I am...

I'm actually morbidly fascinated by this. [strike]As LTK asked, were your PT's in the low 150s?[/strike] Was there any point when you were missing 30+ questions per test that you realized you needed to rethink your approach, or did you just have that "meh" attitude the whole way through?

Edit: Saw HK's answer above.

Oh and someone asked who my avatar was, it's Zoe Saldana, my favorite actress. No self-tar this time, probably in a week or so. :wink:

That's what I thought. She might be my favorite actress too, frankly. This new movie "Losers" appears to be 2 hours dedicated to showcasing her body in slow-motion.

Back on track:

NU - Sticker
Mich - Sticker
WUSTL - 75K

Want: Chicago biglaw job.

OTOH, you can tell me how much of an idiot I am for not retaking the LSAT (3.92, 167 - only took it once and did some basic self directed studying)

I'd say toss-up between NU and Mich. Really depends on where you want to live for those three years.

lol yeah, if you hit 167 like that, some more self-directed studying should get you to 172+ and HYS
