If it makes you feel better dj, I'm currently going through years of Hammy stats to see where I need to fall.

I went all the way back to the genesis of LSN and more people have gotten into S than a hammy with my numbers lol... Hope?

I've looked into this as well

Looks like a 174/3.9x or a 175-177/3.8x is TCR
The people on LSN who got full-rides with less than a 3.8 didn't get Hamilton Fellowships

Yeah that's pretty much what I've seen, as well as a super early app.

It sounds a little trivial but, repeat the games and if the 3rd try you still don't get it really dissect it through 7Sage.

I had trouble with these too. I've been making copies of each game and timing myself on one then trying to beat that time with a new G/L game. For me it's helped with identifying the questions that take the most time so I can skip those and come back to them last

I can always improve my speed on the second try, but it is the first go-around that slows me down. I haven't actually used any of those videos (probably a bad call on my part). Are they on youtube?

Yes, and on the 7sage website.

Yep.
Also, not KJD. (There are exceptions but usually require an outstanding soft factor.)

Do you think there is a significant boost in money for applicants who take a year off versus KJD? I'm planning to take a year off in order to gain a bit of WE and hopefully maturity, but part of my rational is the negative stigma of being a K-JD applicant and student.

I legitimately have a lifestyle that is supportable on 20k per year. Why the hell am I going to law school?

My name is Alexander Supertramp.

I LOL'd out loud at ur memoir.

I think u'll write a TLS guide entitled "How To Get 180 on the LSAT and Get Into Stanford as a Splitter."

finally someone gets that reference

I hope so, I'd be glad to write that guide under a new pen name

I just made a $300 dollar summer reading list of political philosophy texts. What is wrong with me?

Just wrapped up studying for the day, long one but productive (Bout 1/2 way through MH LR and BP LG) might just finish them both up tomorrow and kill the Cambridge packs and LG MH and RC MH next week.

Thank Tree God for 3 day weekends/

Well, I've read a lot of bits and pieces of political philosophy in university classes, but I'd like to be a bit more thorough about it (within reason). I found a couple of reading lists from different universities and combined them. Probably going to ask a couple of my profs if there's any glaring omissions or if they have suggestions. Basically just "main texts" all the way from ancient Greece to modern-ish times.

I have some of the readers from a few Founding Fathers, but I have a tendency to collect books during the school year and wait until summer to read them all, but studying for the LSAT has left me with markedly less time to read casually :?

I do the same thing. :P I have a decent backlog of books, but in a few weeks I'm going to have nothing but time, so I'm trying to come up with healthy things to do to keep myself busy. Figured philosophy would do the trick.
