No there isn't.


BIG-Sucks, this is why lurkers hate you.
They have all these dreams and you ruin them.


All this cynicism is depressing. I'll take my career advice from lawyers I know who are currently doing things I want to do over people who haven't gone to law school yet any day. Thanks for the vote of confidence, and please carry on with your plans.



I'm always optimistic if that helps!

Exactly. There's a middle ground of about 100k that you're overlooking. If you look closely, you'll see that the blue line does not, in fact, touch zero between 60 and 160k.

I'd like to practice Galactic Law, does anyone know any legal aid firms in South Dakota that do that? I want to send them my resume now so I can get on their radar.

Aww mayne, did everybody bail?

I guess I'll go netflix binge on Agents of Shield, and then Daredevil.

I have a lot to catch up on now that the test is over.

I was really hoping to hit 100 today though :C

Of course that middle ground is just as representative as the two giant peaks at 60k and 160k. It's very likely that you can end up in that "middle ground" :roll:

Well if we were to take the integral of the graph between 60 and 160k, it looks like about 30% of the salaries reported are in that range. Glad to know that you have it all figured out, though.

All this talk almost made me completely stop thinking about what my LSAT score will be and when they will officially release them.

It sure is a good thing nobody's mentioned this otherwise we might have started anxious mental pacing again.

Damn, how did you manage that? My highest PT score was a 177. Based on how I feel, I'd be content to get in the 170s.

I maxed out games went -1 in LR and -3 in RC

I diagnostic'd at a 154 in Sept,
prepped on my own and got a 167 in February.
Wasn't happy since I had a 3.5 GPA and want to go to a top 6
Then took a Powerscore course to structure myself and relearn the fundamentals and get more material.
Averaged a 174 on PTs.

I did about 20 timed practice tests total and every single logic game ever printed.

I'm still super nervous about my score though because RC kept flucuating between -2 and -5. And LR between -4 and -1.
Games are almost always perfect but I can miss 1 when I'm hasty which I'm scared might have happened on game day.

The more I think about how much work I put in the less nervous I feel.

I think we'll always wish we had prepped more.
I really really really don't want to have to prep again. I'm pretty sure I got my average or higher, I felt pretty good but I just won't know until grey day.

Oh wait watch "Suits" for big law
"House of Cards" for political career, or "how to get away with murder" for criminal.

And if you don't know what kinda law you want to practice watch all three and pick one!

Exactly. There's a middle ground of about 100k that you're overlooking. If you look closely, you'll see that the blue line does not, in fact, touch zero between 60 and 160k.

Of course that middle ground is just as representative as the two giant peaks at 60k and 160k. It's very likely that you can end up in that "middle ground" :roll:


Well if we were to take the integral of the graph between 60 and 160k, it looks like about 30% of the salaries reported are in that range. Glad to know that you have it all figured out, though.


First off, you take integrals of functions, not of graphs. Second, there are a bunch of discrete functions between 60 and 160k, none of which we know. Third, even if we were to add up the integrals of all those functions, it would just give us a number. That number's meaningless unless we know the summation of all the integrals of all the functions in the graph.

You meant to suggest that we eyeball the area under the graph between 60 and 160k. And then compare it to the total area under the entire graph. Glad to know you're so much better at calculus than other people, though.

I have heard that how to get away with murder is very inaccurate, a practicing ADA said she laughed through the entire show because it was so terrible.

In that case watch the new Daredevil. He's a lawyer.

Also you can decide to become a vigilante if lawyering falls through.

I got bored and threw some statistics at basedvulpes' score release date question

First of all I had to manipulate the data because some clown put July 2nd, 2014 as the release date and, because I assume said clown doesn't really think the scores will arrive via time travel, I went ahead and changed that data point to reflect the year that it actually currently is.

Average answer was the 30th at 2:11 pm with a standard deviation of just under two days and a margin of error of 7/10ths of a day. What this really means is that ~65% of shitpoasters think the release date will be within two days of the 30th and we can say with 95% confidence that the average shitpoaster believes the score will come out sometime between late in the night of the 29th and early in the morning of the 1st.

HOWEVER, that's super fucking boring, so I am instead choosing to purposely misinterpret my data and state here with 95% confidence that scores are coming out sometime on the 30th. Take heed LSAC, the omniscient shitpoasters have spoken.

What's your GPA? You'd be surprised what a 167 can get you. I got a 165 w/ a 3.79, and got into NYU and Chicago.
