it doesn't matter how you start studying for the test as long as you do a lot of it.
Take a gander at employment statistics. The T14 public schools (UMich, UVA, Boalt) seem to find firms who are willing to hire their students, despite not being elite ivies. The shame of attending a public institution is a tough cross to bear, it's true, but at least it's sunny.
Except it's freezing right now, but that's neither here nor there....
I got the mail. No waiver.
bobknob - numbers? and what other schools?
UCLA and Northwestern were the best I received (173/3.9x, Dec. LSAT).
Agreed. I got the UCLA fee waiver. I wasn't particularly interested (east coast bias), but I figured a fee waiver would be enough. Then I saw the 13 page application. Plus you have to pay the fee first, then print out the email and mail it to them. I'm sorry if it feels like I'm wasting it to some, but I wouldn't have ever considered applying without it.
On XOXO I tell everyone that I am the hiring partner at a biglaw firm. Then I tell everyone that they are too unprestigious and TTT to be hired by my firm. After this, I brag about how much money I make, and then I insult minorities.
