Also, 45k COA, is not a bad deal as long as you can live with it if you don't land a good enough job. Try to get the scholly stip lowered if possible though. Finally, retaking does not always help. Just like there are plenty of people who study hard, retake and get better scores, there are plenty of people who study hard, retake and get worse scores.


Yeah, no


Wait, what? Was there a story even to be told? An anecdote about how message boards negatively affected her in some way? Sounds like she's just neurotic, paranoid and plain wrong.

Haha, yes because everyone on TLS knows pre-law advisors have all the answers...

Yea, I found this line very ironic. TLS specializes in discrediting and warning against the flaming bullshit spouted by boomer undergrad pre-law advisers (although I'm sure they mean well, they come from a different time where UC Hastings was a great school for a big firm job). Sure, people do irresponsibly hypothesize, rely on family/professional anecdotes, and sometimes just say random bullshit -- just as people do in any forum, online, in-person, or otherwise -- but never would we quote our pre-law advisers, lmao.

There is an element of the blind leading the blind for admissions related Qs here, but I don't see how he could possibly discredit advice on taking the LSAT from TLS. We may not be adcomms but we've certainly taken (and for many of us excelled) at the LSAT. Clearly he is just trying to discredit TLS to increase demand for his services.

The ability to crowdsource test prep and admissions functions will usually beat individual advisors, especially when those individual advisors are usually pretty clueless.

Also, many posters here are law students or successful lawyers, so I'm not sure what all that "cousin’s girlfriend’s pre-law advisor" nonsense is about.
