There's already an LSL Discord group, with a lot of LSAT discussion. If you think folks would like to talk personal statements on there, I'm sure we could convince the mods to open up a channel for it.
A personal statement channel on the existing discord would be awesome!

Personal Statement Writing Support Group on Discord/Slack?

Hi all! I've been brainstorming for my new personal statement, but I wish I could just casually spitball some ideas with people. Here and on Reddit, I feel like I need to be ready with a fully-fleshed out idea/PS but mostly I'd just like to talk about what I have in mind/find a mutual support group....

Re: LSL c/o 2022 Applicants

Checking in as a reapplicant! :) Applying to the T13, WashU, and Vandy. My goal is to apply as early as possible while still getting several good rounds of edits with multiple people on my materials since I think the timing of my apps last cycle were what got me. Hoping for better results with a str...

Re: LSL Yale250 Bank

Rejected It can be easy to mistake positive economics for a science without values. Its language is mathematics and a formula does not declare if the phenomena it describes is good or bad. However, there is a difference between describing rates of spending or economic growth and attempting to quanti...

Re: GULC Waitlist (Class of 2021)

Hoping this information might be useful to some of you. Last year, I was placed in the special group within the preferred WL. I sent one LOCI after the touching base email from Dean Cornblatt (4/24) and received a feeler email on 5/9 asking me to set up a call. Thanks for sharing this information! ...

Re: Stanford C/O 2021 Applicants

DLS, not calling to see what it is because I like a little mystery and spice in my life. Thought it would feel sad, but I'm honestly just relieved this nightmare cycle is one step closer to being finished Same. After obsessively checking the status checker, I'm oddly zen about not knowing which let...

Re: Stanford C/O 2021 Applicants

Almost had a heart attack when I got a call from a number with a 650 area code and they couldn’t hear me because reception is awful in my office.

It wasn’t Stanford. Just Brooks Brothers, no idea why since I've never shopped at a Brooks Brothers before.

Re: What to expect when you're expecting 2018

For UCLA, I didn't receive a call, only an email letting me know that I had been accepted (there's supposed to be a physical letter arriving, but I haven't received it yet).

Re: University of Chicago Waitlist

Got my waitlist notification while I was at an office party so I drowned my disappointment in food.
Chicago is a reach for me, so I'm definitely going to be riding this one out.
