i'm not applying but i know some of yall are lol



Yea what's funny is that one person went through my post history and found a post with my LSAT score and then said that since it wasn't good enough I must have had some other factors to offset it or been a high demand URM. They asked me a bunch of rhetorical questions that they then answered later in the message.


geez, some people go to a lot of trouble to try to make themselves feel better :roll:

my brother is going to chicago at basically sticker ($5K/year). but he had a weird cycle and got rejected and waitlisted from a ton of schools. it was between chicago, irvine, and wisconsin for him.


Seriously? did he blanket T14?


yep, all except NYU and northwestern, cause he wasn't interested in those two at all.

162/3.68 He was actually super surprised he got into Chicago but didn't expect all the waitlists and rejections from the lower T-14. His cycle is making me worried, but I think it also has to do with the fact that we are MA, which I heard is also hard to predict

It is a bit more unpredictable. Still though, Chicago is an amazing outcome. Congrats for him and best of luck to you.

Just finished PT60, 167.

So pissed at my LG score. I knew exactly what I was doing on that damn much game and second guessed myself and ended up wasting valuable time. -3 on the last game. sigh....

Anyway, for those who might need some motivation in studying. My initial diagnostic was a 137, it's possible.

If you're PTing that high now I definitely think you can go up three more points in three weeks. Some of my biggest score improvements came in the final weeks of studying.

I thought californianauser (sp?) was planning to create it? Not sure if he said it was going to be made available before or after December results come in.

Give how folks are drinking the haterade against URMs like applelover, I think our spreadsheet should be populated on a discretionary basis with two designated persons having exclusive rights to edit. I know other spreadsheets on TLS have been tampered with when everyone gains access. Whose to say someone claiming to be a URM gains access and does similar? I dunno, just a thought. Of course, once everyone's cycle is complete, we can make the spreadsheet public.
