I believe it varies on how much debt you have

One of the attorneys in my office mentioned that salary also affects the minimum payment. It might have to be extremely low though (maybe $60k)

Yeah - those are all fair points, and I agree with them. It takes fairly unusual circumstances for it to possibly make sense.

I'd say the same thing about KJDs, people who don't retake, or any situation where it seems like you're needlessly shooting yourself in the foot.

There is a myriad of payment plans, so it's impossible to say.

If you do pay as you earn, if you make shit money you pay less. It's structured so that you pay more later on in your career (to go along with raises, etc) but you end up paying a ton more interest. Standard payment plans is total loan over 10 or 25 years.

it varies by debt, but just for an idea I'm looking at around 1700 required per month on a 10 year plan.

I'm taking the digital LSAT tomorrow.

Get it... digit-al?

You see... it's funny because digit can refer to fingers and, in the gif, Mr. Colbert is giving us the finger, a digit.

I was gonna do it totally cold, but I think I may look at an LR or two of each type, a RC passage, and a LG.

It really depends on the location for me. I'd gladly accept a full ride from my UG law school (UMD CP) but if they offer me a full ride and NYU/Columbia accepts me with no money I'll be a New Yorker. Any other school in between would be a tougher decision because I'm super debt adverse

You can't be super debt averse and be willing to pay sticker to the MOST expensive law school. :) but anywho, the UCLA example is probably a bad one. Anyone that gets a fully from them will have solid scholarship offers in the t13

Oh, my bad. Then maybe a school lower on the ranks than UCLA ... :mrgreen:

I'm terrified of debt! Wah.

What do those acronyms stand for? Exactly what should I skip? Sorry, newbie here. :roll: :oops:

must be trust, could be true, must be false, and could be false.

basically, all of the questions that have answer choices that make you try each one. if you do them last, and do all the IF questions first, you can eliminate answers for the MBT/CBT/MBF/CBF ones just by looking at your already made game boards for the other questions, thus you wouldn't have to try out every single answer choice for these questions.

Got it, makes perfect sense. So you can save precious seconds (or even minutes!). :P Thanks!

I couldn't tell whether the lawyer cat was saying "I'll buy you" or "I'll bury you" until now. Both are equally savage remarks.
