Hi everyone!

AA male here.

Got all of my applications in except for 3 that haven't opened yet (including USC Hastings, which let me fill out the whole application, but won't let me submit until 10/1...)

Not sure what to do with myself now that applications are in and I have nothing concrete to focus on, haha.

I did get an acceptance call from UCLA, so at least I know I can go to *a* law school, which is a relief.

For me 7Sage was the best. I think it depends on the on the person and how you learn and comprehend material. I had used Manhattan Books and The LSAT Trainer but I found 7Sage to be the best because I loved the built in analytics function within the online course. I also liked their LR and LG explanations as opposed to the books I used. I did like the Manhattan Books and I could have taken or left The LSAT Trainer but I really enjoyed JY and his explanations in 7Sage. Plus I liked the community of people who were also studying and reviewing the material as well. They would ask questions and also answer personal questions for each other. It was a good support system because we were all going through the same thing.


Which 7Sage option did you do? I'm willing to pay some money but not a fortune.

I did the Starter which was sufficient for me to learn the material. However, it never hurts to get access to more material. I also think it depends where you are testing and what you are most comfortable with if that makes sense.

It depends on where you're testing at currently, and what your strengths and weaknesses are

Writer's block can be a serious deterrent. However I would advise you to write a separate personal statement for at least the schools that ask for one and/or give you the option in a supplemental essay.
