No, it was something historical, maybe WWII-related.

Officially checking in for the September LSAT. Medical/work issues wrecked me this last cycle so I'm going all in on the next one.

Took the dive into LSAT mode today with the first of 59 practice tests I plan on taking (3 per week). Considering I ran out of time on every single section, resulting in a couple of guesses per section, and it's been 6 months since I looked at the bibles, I'm content with a 164. -2 RC, -6 LG, -6 -5 LR.

Here's to hoping that 20 weeks and 58 more timed 5-section practice tests with thorough review after each will pay off.

You know what I'm a fan of. Obscure words that are complements but do not sound like they are complementary.

"Hey gurl, you're pulchritudinous AF."

Boys, it doesn't matter how nice the word might be if you throw it into a sentence starting with "hey gurl" or "dat ass." That's a tip from me to you! :P

What is TLS consensus on legal academia?
Also, what are your guys study habits like as in do you fuck around on your phone when doing homework but LSAT you hone in for 6 hours straight or...?

Just toying and joking around with the idea of saying something that sounds bad which is actually complementary. I mean, you don't think pulchritudinous sounds nice, do you?

I mean... flirting with girls in real life? Who do you think I am? Barney Stinson?

It's a good outcome. Pays well and is fulfilling, but it's not an outcome you can count on from anywhere.

Hahah I know you were kidding, was just giving you a hard time. :wink: It doesn't sound particularly nice, but if said in the right context, I'd appreciate it, why not? Shows some creativity!

It would be legendary if you were Barney Stinson.

Premed coworker talking about taking the MCAT, mentioned they were told "whatever you do, don't freak out with strangers on internet forums."
... I feel called out.

Last person that should be giving LR advice but drilling by question type is helpful. I never used PS but MH LR was very good if you want another book.

Haha i imagine you did pretty amazing on the lsat in general so I will definitely take your LR advice. Don't know if it's worth it to go through an entirely new book but certainly will look into it. Drilling by question type is certainly a go to. Hopefully I improve. Thanks!


Also this is the calculator I use: https://7sage.com/gpa-calculator/

Do you guys think going through the Manhattan LR guide is really important? This month I'm redoing the 7sage curriculum/reading Trainer and drilling. I have the Manhattan LR guide but only went through a few chapters before I jumped ship for 7Sage. Is it really worth it?

I think the most important thing is just to have something that explains each question type in depth, in a way you can understand.
