ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

2/14/2020 - Waitlisted at Northeastern. Pretty bummed by this one, I knew it was a stretch but I think it is the best fit for me and my public interest goals. I will definitely stay on the waitlist and wait and see.

1/7/2020 - In at Drexel!

12/19/19 - In at Vermont!

12/18/19 - First acceptance came yesterday in an email from Rutgers! Today I got another email offering a $12,800 scholarship for the first year. Very exciting!

Struggled with mental health in college resulting in poor gpa, which I addressed in addendums.

I took the LSAT the first time 'cold' and got a 147. On subsequent tests with preparation I scored 161, 162, and 161. Here's hoping my first attempt and low GPA doesn't weigh me down!

tips on raising your score? did you self study? what was your routine & what resources did you use?

I self-studied for my second attempt primarily using Khan Academy and got a 161. My third attempt I completed an online Power Score course and got a 162. Self-study again for the final attempt and got a 161. I benefited most from regularly taking practice tests learning how to use my time efficiently, particularly on the logic games. Khan academy was great because it is free and offers a lot of examples and feedback.

which Power Score class did you take? I'm re-taking in January and thinking about trying one of their courses.

I took the power score live-online course. It was two nights a week for several weeks leading up to the exam. It was well run and helpful overall, but personally I would have benefited more from an in-person class because I learn better in that setting (and my score only rose 1 point, hardly worth the expensive cost of the class!).
