congrats! what did you write you personal essays on?

Wednesday, October 11 2017 at 08:38 PM

Thanks! I wrote about some of my experiences in the Navy.

Amazing cycle! That's incredible. Good luck where ever you go. Can you recommend any courses for LSAT prep or any advice in general?

Wednesday, October 11 2017 at 08:38 PM

I self-studied with Powerscore and a number of previously administered LSATs. I found Powerscore's advice on logic games especially helpful. I would also recommend taking as many practice LSATs as you can stomach, with each taken under simulated time/noise conditions. I took around 20 over a 2-month period.

Congratulations! I see in your reply to @futurefocused comment that you took previously admistered LSATs. Where would I be able to find some to take?
