Hey guys, hope everyone did well on the october LSAT
How did you guys find it? I had to be absent last minute due to a family emergency so I'm sitting in December. How was the LG section? hopefully I can buy it soon as it becomes available and take as a PT.

It was fine, LR wasn't particularly difficult, nor was RC, on LG there was one particular game that seemed to give many people trouble (the infamous virus game) but I thought it was pretty ok.

ugh I'm still on the fence about applying for this. I know it's prestigious. Are any URMs interested in PI applying to this?

SEO contacted me and wants me to input my LSAT and schools I'm applying to but I can't find that anywhere in the profile. Do y'all know where I go?

This is the boat I'm in, it seems like such a great opportunity but I've also never really thought of myself as going the traditional law firm route

The website seems really clunky and like it's not set for the law school profile phase yet

Guys can you help me find some clarity/resolution?

I keep hearing that only a sub-set of Hispanics get a boost. I am a peruvian/cuban and people are saying that I may not get a boost. Is there truth to this?

The schools do not report to the ABA what type of hispanics they get right? Or at least it does not show in the ABA 509's, so why further divide the set of hispanics?

Cubans definitely don't get a boost as they tend to be wealthier and many of them are ethnically white.

MA Male checking in! Blanketed the entire T14 and have already been accepted to Duke via PT in September. Based on previous URM Cycle Result Threads and mylsn, I'm excited yet nervous for the rollercoaster of T14 acceptances/waitlists/rejections to come.

SEO application seemed to have updated with law school information info needed. What is the SEO scholarship? Is that separate from the internship, I put I was interested in it, and it is asking for an additional essay (besides my Personal Statement). :( Here's to more writing!

Did anybody else get a big packet from Stanford? Specifically, focused on diversity/race, and even with samples for you?
