I'll probably get the Trainer. I wish I had known about it before I started prepping the first time.


I love the Trainer! I am feeling a little lost about what to do for a retake myself. I know I need to focus on LR. I used the Trainer, 7sage, and powerscore (LG) for the first time around.

I had never heard of the Trainer until I started reading these forums!
I only used 7sage for LG. I'm sure it's a great resource, but I don't want to spend a ton of money to buy the best membership and I only miss the "difficult" questions so I feel like buying one of the smaller memberships with the easy question sets would be a waste.

Yes, Happy 4th, everyone! :D

Chicago, UVA, Harvard, Northwestern, Cornell,Georgetown, and Vanderbilt all definitely have some form of interviewing (though not everyone is invited to and it is optional at some). Duke interviews all scholarship recipients. Just wanted to clear things up.


I think I saw somewhere that WUSTL does interviews too, but i'm not 100% sure about that

I'm moving in like two weeks and today my boyfriend asked why I hadn't packed up my LSAT stuff! Um, because I don't want it to be in a box when I have to start studying again! :cry:


I keep telling myself that how I felt right after the test is most likely an accurate reflection of how I did. If you felt good at the end of it, you probably did well. Don't sweat one question!


I feel the same as Ntp, felt really good after taking it but the more I've thought about it, the worse I feel about it. I've been trying to convince myself that what you say is true, that how I felt after the test is the most accurate reflection. But it's hard!

I felt awesome about it coming out, and I still feel awesome about it now. Either I killed it or I'm completely deluded. :roll:

These schools are so weird, you get into two schools objectively better than WUSTL, yet get ghosted by WUSTL. Sometimes I wonder how they make these decisions.

Edit: or lack of decisions, apparently.

I applied to 11 schools ranked higher than WUSTL and got into 9 of them (still on 2 WLs). So weird. Good enough for the T6, but not good enough to even hear back from a t20

Do some of these schools just not even try to get you due to the fact that they know you'all be taking the t13 acceptances? I feel as though some of them know they are wasting seats for people they know they have little chance of seeing in the fall.

Yes, but very little.


I volunteered to work so I would be distracted from scores and have more PTO for another time. Somehow I'm not as distracted at l as I hoped though.

Yeah a number of schools even midway up the T14 actively yield protect applicants who they think will end up somewhere better.

I'm packing because I'm moving in like two weeks and I procrastinated :shock:
I had scheduled myself to work today but my boss told me not to do that to myself. Little did he know I needed a distraction and I wanted money haha

Yepp, UVA is notorious for yield protecting. There are stats where you're like 50/50 to get a full ride or get waitlisted

Do solid why x essays help? I'm a splitter, so not going to get YP anywhere, I'm just curious.

I hear they are basically required for double high stat applicants at MVP. I did not write one for UVA, and got wailisted. Probably unrelated, but I think it would have maybe helped
