Pretty much the same here. except maybe LR being the one that eases up instead of RC because it's half the test, but it's a toss up.


If LR eased up and games got slightly harder, I would feel confident getting 72+ out of 75 or 76. As for RC, can we just pretend it doesn't exist?

I have such a love hate with RC. On PTs earlier than about 50 i have like zero issue going -0/-1. I'm usually more along -4/-5 on more recent RCs but its really a toss up time to time.

+1.

I am also really surprised by the sheer number of people with Yale level GPAs (more than 1/3 of all poll responses!)

Be very happy with that :) Depending on your score that GPA keeps a lot of doors open for you. My GPA on the other hand means that the top 6 are out of the question barring a huge upset on this retake. *no pressure* :lol:

What are Yale level softs? Not sure if I'm allowed to do this here, but maybe you guys have a better idea about what my softs are like. I have interned for an nba team, for a law firm, and now work at a major law firm. Also I worked at my local basketball league for 5 years and was appointed an apprentice board member this year. Is that Yale level? Michcigan level? UCLA?

EDIT: PT 65 RC -6 first time around, and -7 second time... Sigh

Riddled basins was actually a lot of fun for me because of my past short obsession with chaos theory and anything even tangentially related. But Dutch agriculture was just ???

Thor- I love your friend.

Bee- I literally laughed out loud in a completely silent office out of sheer nervous terror at "riddled basins: the return"

to be blunt, those are very, very average softs. yale level softs: fulbright, rhodes, marshall, nyt bestseller, prestigious academic publications, working at the white house, discovering the cure for the common cold, etc.

Thank you. I'd much rather you were blunt than you get my hopes up. I didn't think those were Yale level btw, though I did think they were above average. Ah well, just another area where I'm right with the pack lol.

:shock: I clearly should have done more with my life... Although the GPA floor for c/o 2016 makes me feel a little less unworthy.

A model for Abercrombie & Fitch

I can safely say my softs are better than at least one person who went to Yale

I feel like the things they list are more diverse/unique than exceptional? I mean juggler, chemist, Broadway production assistant, "30 Rock" intern, documentary filmmaker are all very average softs imo. And it seems like I should include my black belt in my resume again considering they included it in the list every single year.

Not that I'm applying to Yale anyway haha

I was actually thinking the same thing, which is why I I'm thinking (and have been for a while) that I should focus on my board member soft over the working in law firms. I mean a ton of applicants I'm sure have worked in law. I also think a lot of it has to do with how you describe your softs. One experience at a law firm =\= someone else's experience.

We have digressed pretty far from the LSAT, and it is partly my fault, so I'll try and get us back.

Is there another review for PT 70 happening?
