Hanging a shingle?

Hope this is the right place for this. Just want to hear from students or grads who want to hang a shingle. Especially if you are already doing so. What do you practice, or plan to practice? Go into as much detail as possible, and if you have any insight that might help an older student who plans to...

Have you taken any PT's yet?
Yeah, I did a few before studying and hit 155-160. I start studying next week, so hoping for a solid increase.

Re: Older 0L, ready to take plunge, have questions.

Rowdy, yeah, going to send LSAC my transcripts soon, thanks for that tip. I did calculate it once and it indeed dropped a point or two, from 3.8 to 3.6 using the LSAC criteria. But will send in soon to verify. HelloDog, Yeah, debt minimization is certainly my priority, so studying the LSAT is my pri...

Re: Changes over last three years?

they implemented some new rules limiting LSAT retakes. spivey covers it here: Great link, very interesting! Also noticed something about 40 schools now accepting GRE's? I just spotted at least 3 of my target schools on that list. Should I consider taking the GRE instead of the LSAT? Silly question,...

LSAT is digital now and we're not quite sure yet what the implications are.


Pretty much the same tbh.
Thanks! And does our study prep change because of this? I mean, how do we practice electronically, instead of scantrons? Thanks!

Re: Rowdy's Guide to the LSAT

Just a quick thank you for this. It's perfect for my timeline. Slowing down to work purely on PT's, and my weaknesses up front feels like a game changer. Last time I studied (a few years back) I was focused on everything evenly, and I knew it wasn't working, but had no alternative theories to change...

Changes over last three years?

Hey guys, As mentioned in my prior thread, I was interested in LS a few years ago, but my career took another turn and I spent the last few years completely detached from the world of the LSAT and the LS application process. I've been combing through the threads trying to find out, what has changed....

Re: Older 0L, ready to take plunge, have questions.

If you intend to hang a shingle, I would seriously be trying to minimize debt. Fortunately, a 3.8 will help with that. If you can bump that LSAT up past your 165 target, that will help even more. An early application could also help, so I might aim for taking the LSAT in the summer to get your apps...
