Hey there. Just stopping by to say good luck on your cycle & congrats on your acceptance to Duq! How long did you rudy for the LSAT & what materials did you use?

@phillylawlunatic Good Luck to you as well! I have test anxiety tried EVERYTHING to compensate. I studied for 9 months, 8 hours a day 6 days a week. No kidding. I don't recommend my study method because I burnt out and confused myself very often. I should have done MUCH better as much as I studied! I used Powerscore (great), Kaplan (meh) Princeton (meh) Mcgraw-Hill (book was meh, but flashcards were SUPER helpful and I'd recommend), Lsat Max (good) and 7sage (GREAT for games) also Manhattan Prep has an "LSAT arcade" where you play games that help you study. I just recommend keeping it simple, find out what works and perfect it. Don't overthink it or get yourself worked up because it's like a death spiral (I only realized that after taking the real thing for the second time. ) BEST OF LUCK!!! (DON'T STRESS THE EXAM TOO MUCH OR YOU'LL BURNOUTLIKE I DID!

Hey, congrats on the acceptances. Re. Cardozo, did you go from application to interview? Or waitlisted and then interview?
