I missed it before you deleted.. can you post again? I have most of the details figured out besides the location. I need to live vicariously through those who are successful at this god forsaken test to give me something to wake up for.

the bolded is questionable :lol:

but ...


Congrats my dude. I'd still be more tempted towards your current deposit, personally. Great place to live vs shitty place to live in terms of weather.

To elaborate on my criteria - you completed the test, no longer have to study, and are in at a T13 with decent money. Seems successful to me.

Thanks! Good point, but I could have done a little better if I hadn't ripped through taking LSATs instead of putting in extra study time and sitting a year.
I'll probably stay put, but money talks

Hm. It doesn't let you edit things with embedded quotes without reposting. That's annoying.

I'm nervous about W/L at UVA and UMich if my LSAT is >170 (P is almost a guaranteed W/L so I'm more blasé about that)

u breakin vegetarian? or is it the tofu that is a meat substitute and i misread


You guys are lucky. I would be pure vegetarian/pescetarian if I didn't live at home. My family makes me eat meat :/. I just don't like meat: the taste of it.. very rarely do I enjoy it lol.. I think if I had it once in a blue moon I would be up for it, but I'm really not a fan.

I didnt like meat either. Only meat I liked was burgers, but black bean quinoa burgers are just as good.


Sounds amazing!! We have a place called Veggie Grill here which has all the food meat eaters love only it's made only of veggies!! I swear you can't tell the difference.

I'm not a big fan of chicken either. Sometimes I like it like once in awhile but everyday, no thank you!!!

This is so interesting because I need meat with every single meal. But I don't eat seafood lol

Lamb is God's gift to mankind IMO


Haha I love love LOVE seafood but I don't like to go too crazy with it. When I lived on my own I would legit have meat/chicken maybe twice a month.. I know it sounds crazy to some, but I prefer it that way..

What do you suggest the best way to study is? I'm worried that I won't have too many PTs to get in if I do 1/week review and revisit problem areas.. that only allows for 15 PTs.. I was thinking of adding in more PTs towards the end, but it sounds from your post that this strategy might be a mistake?

Oh no! Take lots of PTs if you want! I took 2 less-than-prepared-for real LSATs because I wanted to go to school this fall, instead of calming down and taking my time studying more before taking them. That's what I was referring to. I scored realllllly low on my first take and because of the old restriction it kept me from taking the extra LSAT I needed to get where I could.

I should have put in more time on weird LGs and found out the specific RC questions that tripped me up. I was always pretty good at LR (-2 per section), but I still should have found out what question type was probably tripping me up every time. I also should have taken more 5 sections PTs, instead of doing my PTs a section at a time because I was too busy to set aside enough time for full ones

You should write Why Xs for Mich and UVA if you want them to be options (especially the latter).

Is it also true that Why X essays are meaningless for YSHCCN?
Yeah I will definitely write them. Hopefully it'll make a difference

Ohhh!!! How many PTs overall did you take?

This month (June) I plan on doing section tests i.e. 1 section per day + review but from July onwards 5 section tests with the break. I took a proctors test at a local uni two weeks ago and found my brain significantly slowed down after my snack so I need to acclimate to that..

LR is unfortunately my worst section so I've been redoing the 7Sage curriculum and drilling.

It sounds like you got some awesome offers with $$ so your prep had to have paid off in some ways :)

Not sure how great of results I can help him get, but I would bet by the end of it he ends up going to the local state school for full price. Not great, but probably saving him from a complete junk school like he's considering
edit: actually, after looking at myLSN, a 160 (which may very well be his max) could get him in at half price

What's his gpa?

"Public Ivy"
To me, there's only 3 or 4 that really count. Michigan, UVA, Berkeley, and maybe William and Mary. My UG is technically listed as one on wikipedia, though
