How long did you study for the LSAT to get that score, and what was your first diagnostic score?

My LSAT study log shows focused study for 366.75 hours over nine months. I never took a diagnostic test, but I had a test score as low as 158.

Did Duke send you a fee waiver through CAS or did you ask them for one? Congrats on the LSAT btw. Excited for your cycle. I'm Chem E as well.

Duke granted me the fee waiver because LSAC granted me their fee waiver. (All schools above honor LSAC fee waivers.) Thank you, and congrats to you for getting your chem-e degree. If every class in law school is easier than process control, we should be okay haha

It is life-changing for me, and I cried a lot about it. Thank you for the kind words. Your cycle is heading in a good direction. I'm interested in seeing where you end up, so I'm marking your profile.
