testmasters is def better than kaplan. kaplan is scripted and horrible. i think private tutoring is best if you can get it but it can be more expensive.
I am hoping my focus and adrenaline will give me an extra few points!
I originally signed up for Kaplan but it keeps getting negative press on these boards so I'm looking at going to a TM or PS class. Here is the issue though: neither of them are available in my city and I'd have an hour drive to get to either. Are the additional instructional materials and hours worth it? Is there anybody there that will tell me Kaplan is worth it? I can tell you right now I'm leaning towards PS b/c I already have the LGB and the course is just plain cheeper. Let me know what you think.
I'm sure they'll drop whatever they're doing to investigate, especially since anonymous allegations have so much credibility. I'm sure Hastings would never suspect that you have ulterior motives, since nobody has ever tried to get their competition disqualified from anything. And since USC's admissions office is so helpful and so forthcoming with information, I'm sure they'll be very happy to tell the Hastings admissions process what's going on with their wait list. Besides, the poster is doing something really evil by remaining on a waitlist after accepting admission somewhere else. Nobody has ever done that, and the schools frown upon it. That's why none of them even maintain waitlists.
Seriously, I hope that made you feel better. It sucks being waitlisted. But it's because the schools can get away with stringing people along, not because someone else got admitted off the waitlist and is remaining on another waitlist. It's because USC won't know how many people it needs to admit off the waitlist until UCLA closes its waitlist, and USC needs to keep a lengthy waitlist just in case. It's not the poster's fault that USC and Hastings are so indecisive.This is what you wrote.
I think you should make up your mind.
otherwise it is not fair to others who are still waiting for
admission for Hastings and USC.
I will report to Hastings about a person from NY
admitted recently still goes after USC.
They might rescind your admission.

Hastings was a top choice for me from the begining, and I had just about given up hope when they called...And at least it was in time for to me pack up and move too... I was afraid
