That one dude had to have had seriously awful apps. I mean, I produced an okay app and cleaned up, regardless of the lack of consistency, pretty good. With okay LSAT numbers. Maybe my PS sold me above bottom t13 a bit, perhaps the story that sold me to Chicago is also what made 15-11 think twice on whether they could get me. Why did I get into Chicago?!? I may never know. But it'll always be a feather in my cap even though I won't be attending

Thanks! I played a narrative throughout my app and I definitely think it helped. Rugged American, blue collar, rising up from an agricultural/manufacturing lifestyle. Definitely true if you've followed my posts at all

Is there no way for your teacher to let you take it earlier or later? No way a professor would be that cruel to you!

doesn't really matter, I'd still have to take the final that same day, but the longer I'm there the more annoyed I'll be since I would have to wait for my family to come to the school for my ceremony. I would just prefer to take it later since I'm sure ill finish it quick and then just wait maybe 2 hrs for my fam to show up. So dumb that they did all of this during finals week though, I seriously don't get it

That's absolutely ridiculous!!! Last year I had to take an exam the morning of graduation and that was bad. I can't imagine one being completely after the ceremony. I've never heard of that. That shouldnt be allowed. My roomate didn't get a grade in one class for 2 bloody months after we had graduated. It was insane.... Schools you think would get that shit together you know

Sorry Mikey, but my last exam is in 24 hrs. so pumped and excited.

yeah it sucks but tbh, I have like 3 finals that Monday of graduation week.. so I'd rather have those 2 exams on graduation day/next day than have 5 exams stuffed into that preceding Monday... lol. it sucks but it is what it is I guess

KILL THAT FINAL BOY! also, you're never active in the fb group chat :cry:

When you say it like that, I agree haha. Thanks! I will bro. Probably going to be the hardest exam I have ever taken but c'est la vie.

I promise you I will be more active here and the FB group come next week when I am studying LSAT full time, just relaxing at home. I have been drowning in work the last few months and really just focused on crushing it. I tend to get severely distracted by social media so i tend to eliminate as much of it as i can during times when i need to be super focused.

Man, I feel for ya! My very last semester, I had a teacher who didn't budge on letting me take the final before commencement. I also live away from school without a car. My family came up for the ceremony, took the majority of my belongings, and then left me behind because I still had to take this stupid exam. Coincidentally, this class was the only class I did not get an A in that semester because I didn't do so well on the final. Oops!

When you people say they work a few hours on weekends at a firm, does that typically involve being at the office or just working from home?

I havent worked at a law firm, but in finance its pretty lax especially if the firms give you laptops and you dont work on a desktop. I went in during the summer as a preference but it didnt really matter as long as the work got done. I guess it just depends if its solo work or you need to work with other ppl or use resources at the office etc
