Ugh idk how I feel about this.
On one hand, faster grading.
On the other, I can't imagine doing a lot of the LSAT without being able to physically write on the exam.
Maybe they will still give us the physical exam to mark up but instead of fucking with a scantron we just submit online?


I think that they'd probably still allow for scrap paper since they already do that. I love to eliminate answers by crossing them off on the page though and I can't imagine what it would be like trying to remember the choices i'd already crossed off in my head.

Kind of wish I was still studying b/c this seems like a great way to get some prep while making an easy $100


There's some sick part of me that misses the LSAT. Might do this for the shits and gigs.

I also cross off every wrong answer as I go so a tablet/computer would really mess up my groove.

Ah yeah, I wonder if the tablets have the tech that allows you to make annotations with a stylus on whatever is displayed. Also wondering if you'll have to scroll down the screen at all to get through a passage. It also seems like with a tablet, you'd have to flip between the questions and the RC passage which was unnecessary with the paper test booklet.

I don't miss the LSAT, but having not done any LSAT test or studying for almost four months now, I wonder how poorly I would do. hahaha.

I miss the LSAT too. Studying for it and receiving my score was the happiest time of my entire application season. Constant improvement and positive reinforcement through practice tests, the delusional hope that showing law schools what I could do would get me in, the joyous thrill of getting the real score...

Versus helplessly waiting weeks and months after applying to get waitlist after waitlist and be told I'm not good enough over and over again. Sign me up for the transparent test that actually shows me what I did wrong instead any day. Plus logical reasoning and games are fun.

No greater feeling than banging out that 5 section PT, guessing your score in your head based on how many Qs you got wrong on each section (can't score before you BR!!!!) and then looking up apartments near Cambridge.

This induces stress, not good feelings.


That usually came afterwards, when I actually graded it.

This is a friendly reminder for those who have narrowed their school list down to withdraw from schools they aren't seriously considering anymore. :D

Got a new amex card today and they gave me a $10k limit - my current card is only $2k and my income definitely doesn't warrant that high of one.. I mean my credit is good but :shock:

You all keep me responsible okay - this is just for me to get cash back on groceries lol

This is why I don't have a CC. One day I'd be using it just for gas and next thing I know I'd be traveling across Europe. It's a slippery slope.

I got 10k on the amex too! The fact that it's not accepted everywhere makes it easier to stay good on it.

For those on waitlists, how long are you willing to hold out before just making a choice? I've heard stories of people getting accepted at their top choices the week before classes and I can't imagine scrambling to a school that last minute.

Gotta build dat credit tho

Plus the bonuses/cash back are nice. Gonna get $250 back in a couple months just for paying utilities and buying things I would have anyway

Yeah that's what I was thinking. I'm glad I started with a lower card (5% back on amazon ayy) but with me traveling more recently my utilization of my credit has been high so this will help (a lot more than I expected) with that.
