Have LSAT, LORs, and Transcripts uploaded on lsac. Didn't start updating resume, havnt even brainstormed PS, Why X Z Y essays, or short addendum I wanna write. How many hours do you think this will take? I know it depends on a lot but i just wanna ballpark - if possible. TYVMIA

Trying to get everything in by Sept 1. Also plan on writing separate 4 pg PS for Boalt.

I think it took me about 25 hours to do it all and even that was prob too much. Like just about every thread on this says "it cant really help, only hurt" unless you found the cure for cancer or something

Most started a few years before they applied. You are behind the curve.

This questino is like asking people how long should you take to knit a sweater. (Also, a PS is about as useful as a knitted sweater.)
