First day of being cold at all for me here in Orlando, FL. I dread the thought of a super cold Dec 6 morning!


Yeah, it's raining in Los angeles...first time in a very long time. I missed the sweater weather.

Happy last full month before the LSAT (dying)!

Just finished drilling MSS - 18/20. If today is perfect, I'll get to drill 80 more LR, review some troublesome LG, do some German homework + other school work. Not going to happen though. Hoorah for unrealistic expectations.

mist4bison wrote:Background:
Graduated 2013 with a job (TFA). Worked from June 13-April 14, then quit.
I had another job (big law firm) within two weeks, but it didn't actually start until June 14, so I have a two month gap in employment.
Began law firm job in June 14, still here, love it.

However, I am hoping to move home (across the country) once my lease is up in June. I would only do so if I could find a law-related job, be it small, mid, big, or government. Assuming I find such a job, how would switching so frequently affect my chances of admissions come time to apply? I'm applying next cycle, to be clear.

Will switching have the appearance of someone who isn't reliable/can't stay put? I figured I could spin it positively in that I wanted different kinds of experiences before beginning law school, but will schools even care that I switched?

dont do it, terrible idea, insta-reject...
JK i don't think it would matter too much, just throw in an addendum that quickly touches on the reasoning

I saw your TFA story, so that is definitely worth explaining in an addendum. For the most part, I don't see you "switching" as being unreliable, because you are sticking on a law-oriented trajectory, so that shows where your interests are. It would look weird if you were constantly switching jobs every two months that were in completely different industries. You're fine.

Yes, February, PNJ! I'll be taking just after my birthday and before Valentine's Day, so I should be at the height of depression. Good for the brain.

You mean the one I posted a while ago about being stabbed? lol Yeah, I'm considering putting that into an addendum. Idk if it'll come off as too "poor me. It was hard," though.

Thanks everyone. I didn't think it would matter too much, but I'm glad everyone agrees. Now I can plan to focus on job searching after the LSAt is over :mrgreen:


The fact that you're going home and want (presumably) to go to school there will probably play in your favor...I think playing up the experiences MO sounds good too...you're pre-law at this point, checking out your options and esp in a down economy imo looks like wisdom...and depending on how old you are (I'm assuming you're early-mid twenties) you're not really expected to have everything figured out, but I agree w the others that staying in the same law trajectory makes you appear to be driven and goal oriented.

for those who don't know, PT73 is being sold(till the 3rd) on 7sage https://7sage.com/addons/ for $6 its a pdf + comes with 1 month access to the video explanations for the PT

ETA: They also are offering their PS bundle(also only a month access) for like $0.59 if any1 cares, theres a good chance TLS has the same or better advice but its less than a buck if any1 is interested

20 MSS
13 Cannot be True
12 Complete the Passage
8 Main Conclusion

nlee: PT62 is my favorite PT of all time. It's quite tricky in a lot of subtle and interesting ways. I don't want to give anything away, but I've grown to really respect that test. I think you'll enjoy going through and reviewing that one. There's a lot to learn from.

Gawd we're such nerds. :P I remember going over a flaw question and realizing what the problem was and then, for the rest of the day, saying "that was such a beautiful flaw!"
