Re: Apply now or wait for Jan?

Apologies for the wording there, I didn’t mean for it to come off so flaky. I fully understand the scholarship factor, which is why I’m not really considering any T14s, and sticking in the 25 and below range. I’m in a very good financial position right now for school, but obviously debt burden is t...

Re: Apply now or wait for Jan?

you should figure out what your goals are, what schools will help you achieve those goals, and if those goals from those schools are feasible wrt debt and income. then target your LSAT accordingly, and not focus so much on cycles but rather if you're on track to achieve those goals. scooped-ish by ...

Re: Apply now or wait for Jan?

Good to hear you’re not in a rush, cause there usually shouldn’t be one. Work toward getting that LSAT up and position yourself with as much leverage as possible once you apply to and get into some good options. With a 167, you’re still in good shape based on the range you’re talking, but with a 170...

Data available is tiny, but in your case that's probably a good thing. You're rare. Harvard should be an acceptance, and YS will depend on the rest of your profile (YS are a bit more black box in wanting other interesting things beyond the applicants qualifying numbers), but you'll definitely be in ...

If you’re a 2L or 3L with a job offer secured, you can also take a part time job to make money during school. ^ this is a good caveat, and if your summer job is in the city you attend school in you may even be able to keep working well into the school year. I had several classmates who kept on in a...

Re: 2.98 GPA, 155, STEM B.S. and Ivy League grad

Suffolk and Northeastern both cost ~$250k non-discounted, meaning with full tuition and cost of attendance. Since you're below both medians for Northeastern and below Suffolk's GPA median while right above their 75th % LSAT, you're likely looking at close to full price. Compare/contrast that with th...

Re: Will Administrative Pass grade penalty affect getting a job in the future?

i'd probably ask about it, especially if we went to the same school, and definitely if it said explicitly: "this student failed to stop writing at the appropriate time.'" it'd be a bad thing, and probably a dealbreaker if he/she couldn't explain it away satisfactorily. I'm not entirely sure my expl...

The first two ATL bonus notes I saw were for Kaplan and Wilkinson doing elite boutique things, and gave up there being anything interesting happening in bonus season.

Unless you think Fried Frank paying for basically corpses on 130% bonuses is good news.

Ok, as I see it, you have multiple problems here, one of which ymmv already touched on. 1.

That’s a deceptively easy question (and I’m guessing mostly rhetorical).
