CS is more interesting than law anyway, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

what kind/field of startup that was? vc funded, if so which round?
New media company that had $12.5 million in seed revenue and was about a year from revenue. Title would have been head of business operations. One of those rare new startups with no tech involved.
Nice, how's the company doing today?

This wasnt too long ago so it's still prerevenue but is on track with what they told me expectations are. It's about 50/50 whether it succeeds.

Wasn't it the same way last summer too?

Probably a combo of many on-topic posters not making the migration from TLS and June/July kinda being dead months for applications since apps aren't open yet. But yeah, there should still be an LSAT study/waiter group with the test coming up in two weeks. Or some waitlist movement over the summer.
i thought last year it was slightly better like you could see at least some on-topics when you click on active threads first page, but i could be wrong. i much miss the old on-topics with constant barrage of posts related to lsat, applications. i couldn't imagine being able to prep without it bc i didn't know anyone irl doing lsat.

how are preppers and applicants managing now?

iirc you went to hls. does that name open doors in your career transition now? could you have tried for MBB placements?

i've been putting in a few hours everyday for the last month, still less than what i'd have liked. have the onsite for the startup this week, my first in this search. hope it'd get the juices flowing.

Good luck dude

I'd be interested in reading a recap if you have time. Always thought suralin's onsite debriefs were interesting and useful.
