There is still time! I had all of my applications (except 1) in by mid-October and I still haven't heard back from everywhere. And I've heard back from at least 2 schools each month since November. Someone is probably reading and loving your app right now!!!!!


<3 So much love for you!

I thought people were attributing Berkeley's drop to a drop in peer score ranking? Was it higher than this last year?

How is Penn lower than MVB?



I always get the impression that the only reason MVB are peers is because they are state schools

I'm ultra orthodox Hasidic From Brooklyn and didn't go to high school. My community is tradionally uneducated and don't participate in professional fields. I dumbly decided to submit a URM request saying that although I am not legally a URM, my community is underrepresented in the legal field bla bla ..
How bad did I mess up and will this hurt me ?

I honestly don't think it will hurt you if you explained it like that.

Yeah, the Hasidic population in NYC is known for being traditionally opposed to secular education. Certain religious beliefs can qualify someone as a URM irl so hopefully that translates into law schools.

Congrats on the full ride!

I've been the token POC at events. Unless you're being used as a token, it isn't that bad and you can see how many perks you can get lol

Anyone else ITT plannng on re-taking? I am for sept and I'm not sure when to get back to prepping. Thinking about maybe May-ish? I only have a handful of fresh PTs so I'll be using alot of old material but I haven't studied for the LSAT since last November so I'm really hoping this 6-7 months off will give me a new outlook on how to attack this test. Really wanna hit the high 160s/170s

Typical, society gives us a single thread and then has the nerve to shut it down on weekends. TLS is such a sad place when this thread goes quiet.
