To be clear:

In their classroom courses, every question that Kaplan uses is from an actual LSAT administration.

Kaplan's 6 in-class tests that are administered are the actual June 2006, October 2006, December 2006, June 2007, October 2007 and December 2007 tests with sections of previous tests inserted and unscored to make the tests full 5-section tests [the inserted section is treated as an unscored section, just like on test day.]  All of the scored questions are the actual PrepTests presented and scored the same way as they were administered during these test administrations. 

None of the questions have been mixed within the actual section.  This is a total misrepresentation. 

Regardless of your experience with Kaplan, their tests are the same PrepTests that you would receive from the LSAC with an early (say, PrepTest 4) section added in to provide a full test.

To be clear, you were caught with 3 accounts from the same IP all posing as Kaplan students in the same thread.  48 hour bannination.,4010525.0.html

Does anyone know where I can get this? I took the test and now the disclosure book isn't available and I'm not so into paying eight bucks to see it again.

I'm also confused about the waitlist/reserve distinction. Those who were waitlisted: did it mention that Columbia will next contact you at the end of May?

Not only is the ABA a sham, but so is the bar; someone was misleading you.  All you need is a frame, a diploma template, Kinko's or a printer, a wall, and a nail.  You'll be raking in the money while those suckers on both the ABA and non-ABA track are still wasting three years in school.


Honestly though, you can get into at least a lower Top 14 school. I'd say apply to Chicago, NYU, Michigan, Virginia, Berkeley, Duke, Penn, Cornell, Georgetown, and Northwestern. I'd say apply to like UCLA and Vandy just to be safe. Everyone says this thing is all about the numbers, but it's not. Your personal statement is the key. You can overcome any numbers with an amazing personal statement. Check out one of the editing/invent your statement services. Make sure you don't go with anything under $200 an hour though. Anything below that and you are getting TTT services.

Stop promoting evil Kaplan.
Allow for there to be a "deferral-> waitlist-> rejection/acceptance" thing.

Waitlisted at NYU!  I KNEW I messed up their application...

Isn't that a tad pretentious? It's a competitive process and can sometimes be capricious; to owe it to a mess up on your application is not so fair. No offense, but it comes off as kind of entitled.
