Thats just the way Breitling bands are.  They are diagonal like that, but don't stretch.

That must have ran you like 1500... i like it.

I was thinking of getting a superocean steelfish one of these days.

My LV sub is nice, it goes with alot of stuff and is flashy, but sometimes I wish I went with the more traditional black bezel sub.

I bought genuine dials and bezel inserts if I ever wanted to change over, but I dunno.

completely f*cked up the LSAT, 169 . GPA: 3.86.

I should probably retake , eh? (was planning on actually going to a good school (i.e. t14) but with that score no chance in hell!?!?)

Def. retake.  Have apps ready to go when your October score comes in.

Agreed, and then the normal kids who mess up in October, take again in December and turn in apps late and end up still deciding in July where they might be going!

156 in Oct. Just got a 164 in June. Big enough improvement to turn down my current acceptance at a local T3 w/ 50% scholarship and apply all over again?

Unless you are set on practicing locally, absolutely.  And quit calling me Amy.  You just jumped about 25% of the LSAT pool, and probably closer to 50% of the pool who actually decides to apply to law school.

I wasn't very good at LG AT ALL, but eventually they became pretty fun for me. Except on test day.

Oh yeah... that's one of the times you were mean to me - during December's postmortem!

Are testers this obnoxious every year? "ZOMG I only got a 173! Retake in October, I guess." :-|,4012070.0.html

Theyre prolly a little douchier than average.  The June kids are the real gunners of the group.  Normal kids take it in October.

Did you srsly retake a 173?

He's already admitted according to his sig. I assume he's just doing it so his tutoring resume is more impressive. :D

Ahh I forget we're two cycles down the road now.

PS - The statement you sign requires that you not take the LSAT for any reason other than to seek law school admission.  All these tutors and Robin Singh wannabe's are f'ing up the scale.

First, thanks so much for your continued help on this board.  My query is this: after this summer, I'll have a low cumulative GPA (~3.1).  I'm fairly confident I could raise that almost a tenth of a point if I wait to apply until the spring, when my fall grades will factor in.  In your experience, is the extra tenth of a point worth forgoing the advantage of applying early?  I've taken the June LSAT, so if I do apply in the fall I'll have everything ready to go the day schools start accepting applications.

My inclination is that applying early is more of an advantage than that extra GPA bump, especially since I'm under the 25th GPA percentile (but hopefully above the 75th LSAT percentile) for all of the schools I'm applying to.

Thanks again,

A 3.0 is treated the same as a 3.1 is treated the same as a 2.5.  Theyre all below the school's 25th%, which is all that matters... so you might as well apply early.
