Can you be a bit more specific? Do you plan on actually applying this cycle?

You're considering cancelling because of one LR question?

She should probably cancel...

Nvm she must be referring to the entire section (RC fail on my part). Someone might want to let her know the section with what I assume she's referring to as the "throwback question" (two-question stim) was experimental.

That makes a lot more sense. Surprised she didn't know it was a fake by now though.

Due to my brief 'lack of posting', I got some apps in and started a Why UVA essay. It really helped. Still think I got less than 168 on Saturday.

BU and BC. I've also emailed some schools without explicit policies listed on their admissions sites about whether they could consider solely my Oct score or if they'd have to hold the application until December scores come out. For the record, Penn said they would consider the Oct score solely unless otherwise stated. BC said essentially the same. Cornell said they hold it unless otherwise stated. For the schools with explicit policies that I looked at, at UVA they consider your previous scores and not the future one unless otherwise stated. And BU states they automatically hold the application without considering applicant preference.

Yes, that is what I am referring to. I didn't want to get too specific. I have been reading for a bit and that being the experimental seems to be the consensus. How do we know it was an experimental though?

I wish more of you guys weren't scared of the lounge. Survivor is getting good and we haven't even had the first challenge yet.

Question about the app process. So I've been waning between applying EDII to Cornell or not, but obviously that is also dependent on my LSAT score. The deadline is Jan. 6th which may or may not be pretty soon after the LSAT. Would it be worth it to apply now or should I just wait til I get my LSAT. I'm just worried that the LSAT could come out later, or day of, and then I have a very quick turnaround to make this decision.

Keeping out of the lounge until I send in my last app. I have a feeling I'll never get anything done otherwise.

Just don't bring your post-application submissions-waiting-for-responses neuroticism into the lounge. You'll get eaten alive.
