Monday, March 04 2019 at 07:39 PM

Hi girl! First off congrats on all these acceptances..you did that!! Im a junior in college and my gpa closely resembles yours was wondering if you wouldn't mind giving me any LSAT/Application tips. Here is my [email protected]

Saturday, December 22 2018 at 07:58 AM

Good Job on the LSAT. What LSAT prep course did you use to study with? I'm torn between LSAT MAx online and Powerscore Online.

Friday, May 04 2018 at 02:28 PM

@dana mae Thanks! I PM'd you!

Friday, November 16 2018 at 02:44 PM

Congrats on the AMAZING cycle! How did you prep for the LSAT?

Friday, May 04 2018 at 02:28 PM

@chilawyer91 Thank you!! I PM'd you!

Tuesday, April 02 2019 at 07:47 AM

Congrats on your success! Can you please share LSAT prep tip? Thanks

Friday, May 04 2018 at 02:28 PM

@LawLawFL Thanks!! I PM'd you!

Thursday, April 04 2019 at 01:35 PM

Hi Congratulations! How important is work experience for college admissions, according to you? And does being a STEM major help in covering up for a low GPA? Thank you so much!

Friday, May 04 2018 at 02:28 PM

@AmiKhan Thanks! I'm assuming you mean law school admissions-and all of my interviews asked about the work i've been doing post-grad. I also wrote about it all of my "why x" statements. I think it definitely helped show adcomms I was serious about Law School. I think the general consensus is that it won't hurt you to have work experience and most likely will benefit you. Not a STEM major (i did take a lot of STEM classes) so i can't answer to that. Feel free to PM for more specific info/questions!

Wednesday, January 04 2017 at 08:28 AM

WOW! just wow! Congrats on all of your acceptance! I'm excited to find out which one you ended up choosing. Also any tips on studying for the LSATS? thanks!

Friday, May 04 2018 at 02:28 PM

Congrats!

WOW!! Congrats! hats off to you bro.

Friday, May 04 2018 at 02:28 PM

@landinglanding Thank you!!

Sunday, May 26 2019 at 10:46 PM

Do you think someone applying with similar stats and AA URM straight out of undergrad could do as well as you did? Or do you think there was more weight towards those 3-4 years of work experience that got you more merit

Congrats!
Tuesday, June 11 2019 at 10:36 AM

Wow, simply congrats on your acceptances! May I ask which college you attended?
