damn, that sucks. I know someone who took a Kaplan class and thought it was legit a waste of money and did better when they self-studied

Shit that's messed up. Kaplan's gotta be raking in the cash charging $1000+ for TTTT courses.

Yea just, seriously. I think the majority of people who take Kaplan courses for the LSAT are not that informed.

I'm glad the "pre law" society at my school aren't idiots and at least get guests from testmasters and not some TTT company lmao.

I'm pretty shocked at how many pre-law organizations use Kaplan as a resource, to be honest. I know many, however, are switching to Testmasters and other sources, slowly but surely.

Checking in!

I've promised myself that, over the next several months, the only message board I will post on (and allow myself to "procrastinate" on) will be this one. :mrgreen:

The topics of discussion are not likely to be what movie is out this week or about a great new release on Netflix but whatever. :mrgreen:

I've got a pretty high PT average, tell her my username and I'll do it for $1300; that is like a months rent.

Well, study group threads go off topic sometimes. But for the most part, it's usually just LSAT or law school related stuff!

To be fair I don't start paying until January (moving) but it is in my college town in Florida, I went with a nice 1/1 because I got a better job and can study at nights like the reclusive hermit I am When to workout tho, I'm never giving that up

I looked what it would get me in Ann Arbor and then cried because of how much bigger the space was.

Renting a great release from a Redbox kiosk? But I'd have to leave the house for that!

Living alone is the shit haha. Roommates just aren't really my thing. When I'm looking up schools one of my top questions is whether I can live in a 1/1 without completelyyy breaking the bank lol.

I actually hated living alone in college, but I need to have solitude since I'm working full time and studying for this godforsaken test.

As for where I'll go I think I figured it out; NYC, Penn, Cambridge (LOL not happening), Chicago all roommates. Ann Arbor, Austin, Charlottesville 1/1

Have you checked out the Lawyer's Club at Michigan? It looks like it'd be pretty sweet but idk how I'd feel about paying so much for basically a dorm room when a place 3-4x as big off campus would cost the same.

Just looked it up, seems kind of small for the price tbh, plus you can get a decent sized house in Ann Arbor with 1 other roommate for that price. It might be farther away but hey, it is a house.

So what's everyone's plan for June 2017? Self study and then a class? When will you take the class? What class are you planning on taking? I want to use my upcoming winter break to start some light studying and planning everything out to the detail including reaching out to possible professors for a letter of recommendation and informing them that I will be contacting them again over the summer break if they agree to it.

I'm really having difficulty on what class to choose. Test Masters seems the way to go and I already have the three Power Score Bibles, also.

Steer clear of a class imo, it won't focus on your weaknesses as much as self study. If you're going all 6 months due to heavy courseload or fulltime job, take your time and try to logically think about and absorb the information in the prepbooks. This is a retake (due to sickness in September and a bunch of weird shit that forced me out of December) for me so my plan goes something like this (in my head).

Print of x3 copies of every game from 1-60
Organize them into QT

Month 1-2 (Jan-Feb): Do basic/advanced linear games, read through all 3 manhattan prep books; focus primarily on strengthen, weaken, assumption, and parallel LR; Drill RC (untimed and heavy RC review).

Month 3-4 (mid march?): Reread the LSAT Trainer w/notes. LG grouping and stupid games (once in recent history); Rest of the LR question types left; Timed RC w/ heavy review

Month 5-6: PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT, PT PT, PT, PT, PT PT, PT, PT, PT PT, PT, PT, PT
and lots of reviewing.
