Rigo, I completely understand where you're coming from. Whenever I talk about potentially retaking in September, my mom's like "That's not an option. Don't even think about it." My parents are positive I will be accepted in half of the T14s despite my low 160s LSAT score. They don't understand how important this test is in admissions. But, still, my mom wants me to apply to my state school which is T50 but NOT anywhere I would want to go. I know that if I apply to appease her and get rejected everywhere but there, she'll pressure me to go there. It drives me crazy.

My rant is just to show that many of us are in the same boat. We know what we want to do with our life... our parents want the best for us. But sometimes they don't know enough to call the shots.

I believe it changed to its current format in 1987. I have no idea what it was like before then but I believe it was radically different.


I actually have a pre-1991 LSAT. It's really interesting and reallllyyyyy different.

Rigo, I'm so sorry. That sucks. Sending many hugs your way. Have you tried showing them articles about how important what school you go to is? Don't feel ashamed if you have to start studying again. You know it will all pay off in the end. It is just difficult, I guess, for people not taking this test to see how you can study for months and months and still underperform on test day. They just see how we've studied so long and hard and have devoted our lives to this test and they don't get how it isn't over sometimes even after we've taken it and how we can't just say "oh well" to a mediocre score.

My parents have the opposite problem. They research stuff and then think they know more than me. It drives me insane.

Thanks for the feedback on that. The lawyer I was talking about took it pre 1987..so from what I am gathering, not only did the test itself change but it is also more competitive. *leaves desk with paper of facts in hand* ;)

I've seen it. Some might say it's slow, but I liked it.

Lol I think it's harder honestly.

ETA: Maybe harder isn't the right word. It just tests a lot more and the RC is way longer.

Oh really? In general, how would you say it is really different? The questions or the makeup of the exam?

Yeah I've seen the pre 1991 tests too, and they're weird AF. The difference in difficulty is not the content of the test, but the competition. If you had good grades in 1975, you didn't need to score in the top 1% of test takers to go to Harvard. You just had to not be a boob.

Thanks goodness my current position requires me to pull a Kalinda and do tons of research. Found it: http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED469242.pdf

Ah this sounds tough. I am really lucky to have my fiance be totally understanding... I just retook for my third time, so I'm done now, but he just always wanted me to do my best and plus he has a good job so doesn't mind waiting.

What are your SO's specific concerns?

If you're serious about staying together, you have to have a long conversation about your long term goals, where you want to be, in 5 years, what you expect from each other, etc.

It's been easy for me b/c Mr. Grey has good career opportunities in DC and will be finishing his PhD this spring - it all just made perfect sense. But I have put going back to school on hold for a bit because of him (though I don't regret it at all).

I'm really lucky. My boyfriend has been very supportive and is telling me to just do what I think is best. He is applying to med schools for fall 2016 and he is fully on board with applying to places near where I end up for law school, even if we have no idea where that is right now. He took the MCAT, so I guess he knows how stressful these exams are.

AWESOME. you. are. awesome. :)

I also thought, in briefly reviewing them, that the questions were not as dense as they are now. Would do you think?
