I think you're referring to me. I had my JR1 on 11/20, but no JR2 (yet?). Stats in profile and LSN.

That seems kind of random. :( I've never understood how some people can just lump other people into one big negatively viewed group :? I figure you should judge on a case by case basis, and on personality, nothing more.

...end PSA :)

Well there is some history to that dislike with older generations.. It stems from the aquisition of Puerto Rico and the granting of citizenship to its people.. rather silly to dislike for our generation but the older generation tends to hold on to old issues... :) and hey hey PR sister ;)

If you provide TLS pictures of yourself, I can almost 100% guarantee a 5+ lsat score increase.....easiest thing you can do to raise your chances of getting a top score!

Hey! I am only half PR but very proud of it...I'm glad to see more activity too. There are many, many talented PRs and the fact we are so unrepresented is shameful.

PR here... applied on 1/20... I am worried about how late I applied. Master's in Economics from Johns Hopkins. Here is to hoping that my late applications don't hurt me too much!

Just looking to keep the thread alive. How is everyone's cycle going? I find the waiting to be the hardest. I'd rather study and take the LSATs, then wait for months to know where I am going to be in the fall. Read that study about how PRs average in the high 130s on the LSAT, but it was from early 2000s. Anyone have anything more recent?

Hey a fellow Puerto Rican here. Look me up on LSN and lets show each other some support. I hope your cycles are going well!

If you need any advice or any help please let me know.
