Extra Curricular Information

Good luck to all...if you're still studying for the LSAT--don't quit! I studied for months with almost no score increase (mid 140s)...until two weeks before my LSAT. Thats when it sort of clicked. My advice is to see how much time you have to focus on studying. I cut down on work hours and gave myself several months to learn question types/do practice tests/review why I answered wrong or right. And every day I tried to study some, whether it was a couple multiple choice questions/one logic game/full 5 section test + review.

It was depressing when my score wouldnt go up...but eventually I told myself Im gonna keep studying and not care about what score I get on PTs. My mindset was yes I might get most (sometimes all...) of the questions wrong but Im finishing the test and reviewing each question regardless. Im not going to give up studying yet until the day of the LSAT. The reality is I might get a lower score than I was shooting for, but Im a spiritual person and believe it will work out in the end. It always does!

At the start I pushed myself to aim for top competitive schools, but soon I realized that practically-speaking my LSAT score wasnt gonna increase enough for that. Its okay, not the end of the world. Gotta be gentle with oneself. That attitude change helped a lot! Highly recommend going thru the law school process with no expectations! Lol I wish I came to that realizations earlier in life but anyways, I hope this helps anyone reading this and looking for advice.

PM me with any questions, Im happy to help if I can.
