Re: Spivey Consulting Q&A with Adcoms from Yale, Harvard, Penn, Chicago etc.

Hi team Spivey,

Can the upcoming financial crisis have an impact on law schools? People tend to go to grad school in times of economic crisis, and I was wondering if we could expect the next cycles to be extra competitive.

Thanks!

Re: 5 lb. Book of LSAT Practice Drills?

I took the class and received the 5 lb book. The course went fine; however, make sure to choose the one over ten weeks as there is a lot of homework.

Hey guys, do you happen to know which T14 has the lowest COL? Michigan Thanks mate appreciate it! But also be aware that this is not the same as the answer to "Which t13 has the lowest Cost of Attendance?" For that, the answer is, surprisingly, Berkeley. It's cheaper to attend Berkeley out of state...

Re: Spivey Consulting Q&A with Adcoms from Yale, Harvard, Penn, Chicago etc.

Hey team Spivey,

If I take the LSAT this year but only plan to attend law school in 3 years, how would adcoms perceive my score?
I'm trying to get done with the LSAT as soon as possible but want to save money before law school.

Cheers,
