The funny thing is that I probably schooled fools who did far better than me on the LSAT. I just out worked them. Proving once again that the LSAT is just an arbitrary sorting mechanism.

Except maybe if you had "outworked" everyone while studying for the LSAT, you wouldn't be paying sticker at WUSTL.



I graduated summa cum laude while working 30 hours per week. Not everyone has the luxury of going through under grad without working a job. That being said, I guarantee I would have done very well if I would have not worked a job. Hindsight is 20/20. Luckily it all worked out. Now I just have to focus on doing well with my studies at WUSTL

Set your sights higher. Porsches are a dime a dozen. You deserve a Lamborghini.

I was literally going to post the same thing, but figured it wasn't as big of a deal to me considering THANKFULLY I won't have any classes with him/her.

Most people on TLS who graduated Summa Cum Laude retook the LSAT and went to YHS or a T14 with major money. They probably had to do half the work that you had to do to get twice as far as you with much less risk.

Lol, yup, actually though. Whenever I see a firm profile with an undergraduate summa or magna cum laude or PBK and some lower T1 or TT law school, I'm like what, retake.

TBF pre-TLS I'm sure the vast majority of law applicants had no fucking clue how much a retake is worth when you have that kind of GPA. Hell I'm sure most today still don't realize it.

I wish I would have discovered TLS before applying to law school.
