biscuit - where are you applying for ls??  If it's anywhere in the Mid-West, I have to believe they've heard of RH.  Of course being a Boilermaker ME, I may be a little naive in believing RH's rep is larger than it is.

Chopper, OCC, Big Dog, WC, doesn't matter as long as it's a big loud long ass ride

During a local law school (low t1/high t2) open house, the vp of admissions came out and stated that they didn't place much stock in LOR.  She thought if you couldn't find 3 people to say something nice about you you were probably a loser anyway.  She recommended giving them a copy of your PS and telling them what you want the LOR to say and working with them on that.  There was nothing about not being able to read it - the people I asked sent me an email version first asking how's this look before they mailed it.  I went back through my law school app and couldn't find anything about not reading the LOR - is this a school specific requirement or did I miss something on LSAC?

Having worked for some 15+ yrs and known people at various income levels in different size cities, upper middle seems to come in around 120K.  This is where you blow 5K+ /yr going to Disney, buy your 16 yr old a car for their birthday, spend 300K+ on a house, drive a 50K vehicle etc.  Having a relative as a business unit manager, he scores probably around 175K.  Couple this with a 750K house in the burbs of a big city, private lessons for the kids, new car when you want it etc. and I'd say this is pretty much upper middle.  I'm not even going to touch on how our expectations have risen over the years and our parents (at least my parents) generation got by with one car and a 'small' 1800 sf house

I don't think you graduate gpa will influence the decision very much.  Index will be based on UGPA and LSAT.

As far as LSAT time:

June - nice weather, afternoon start time, early enough to retake in Oct if you choke
Oct - nice weather, too close to retake in December if you choke, a lot of schools open apps in Sept - before LSAT test
Dec- weather may be crappy, awful late for most schools, screws up holidays with studying
Feb- crappy weather, too late for admin to most schools, studying will lag during holidays

Since you're in school you have to take into account what classes (if any) you'll be in when you prep for the test.  Also will you be working FT or PT after you graduate as this may cut into your prep time.

I'd recommend June for the LSAT if you think you're prepped.

IMHO, denial test aside, you need to link greasy to pesticide to make the conclusion work.  B does that better than A
