  1. It likely won't matter. Bear in mind that some law schools don't consider summer courses (as in, they won't count them).
  2. Yeah, that structure is good. Also put the ambassador thing into your extracurriculars.
  3. If you're 3 years deep, you may as well finish the degree and have it in your hands. It may be useful in the future. Many of your future classmates will have finished their degrees, and some even take 1+ years off from school before attending. I mean it's up to you, but I think the best option is to do the 4 years and get your degree.
  4. Do whatever you need to do to get to where you want to be. If you have a lot of debt and want to do corporate to help pay it off, go ahead and do it. I'm not of the mind that you need to have a genuine interest in something to do it. Do whatever is most practical for your life. Plus, you can switch lanes if you choose to once you've paid off your debt or gotten close to. Not like you always have to be in the same area of law. Granted, it'd probably be like a step backwards if you decide to do something else later, but these are sacrifices you'd need to make if you want to get rid of your debt quicker. Heed the warning of others, though, if you do require some interest in what you're doing in order to do it well and bare through it.
  5. You'll be fine. My EC's were trash and I was admitted to a majority of schools really early on. If you're doing grad school just to improve your grades, I don't think that's necessary. There are b2/l2 schools that'll accept you as is if you score well on the LSAT (I'd say 162 and higher). Focus on getting a good LSAT score and just apply. Law is expensive as is, try to avoid paying for grad school unless you're getting big scholarships or something of that sort.
  6. Luck can help you get a higher score than usual, but it also depends on the difficulty of the test you end up taking relative to the PTs you worked on. On the day before the test, do your best to just relax and not think about the LSAT at all. Take the day off from the test. It'll give you some good rest before the big day, and it may help your chances in scoring higher than usual too.
  7. The entry level will only give you access to easy-level questions. The more expensive programs offer more, as you can probably see from checking their site. I know it's really expensive, but I'd recommend getting the ultimate package. I don't have the attention span to read through different books for a standardized test and I found the video explanations on 7sage helped me out a lot. Although, the type of program you need may also depend on where you're currently at with the LSAT (PT score-wise). If you need a lot of help, the ultimate package is really good & it provides all the previous LSATs with explanations for each question. Bare in mind that 7sage also posts all their logic game explanations on Youtube, so be sure to check that out too.
  8. I always get nervous before tests and important events but I find that my confidence takes over by the time I get to it. I would agree that dropping from a PT of 155-157 to 146 on the real thing is quite a drastic fall. Though I wonder, how exactly have you been PTing? Are you strict on yourself and follow exam conditions perfectly? Are you waking up early to take the PT (same hours as the real LSAT)? Make your PTing a routine that is as close to the real exam day as possible. Also, stop convincing yourself you're an ideal student for law and that this exam is holding you back. Shift your focus on proving to yourself that you're as deserving as you think you are. That means stop thinking highly of yourself and acknowledge that this test isn't some bullshit trap to set you back from what you're destined. Focus on conquering. Have a hungry lions mindset. Be ready to kill that LSAT from the moment you step into the building on exam day. Achieving this mindset requires confidence, and to be confident you have to trust your skill set and fully believe that you're capable of beating this exam. Lastly, I know this is hard, but try not to think about your last two scores when you go into write again. Don't even think about them at all, if you can. Those scores are in the past, you should realize that, looking ahead, you have the opportunity to re-establish yourself with a high score. It may sound stupid but keep telling yourself that you'll score where you're PTing, that you can do it, that those last scores won't be repeated on the next one, etc. Overcome any fear of possible recurrences. A lot of this shit is mental, and with the right mindset, I do believe you'll score closer to where you're PTing. Good luck, you can do it.
  9. Yeah, I agree. Math on its own is probably harder than most non-science programs. I sucked at math, though, so I don't know if my subjective experience is enough to dismiss the true difficulty (or not) of non-science programs.
  10. I won't go into what allows us to characterize someone as smart, but I don't think being good at math is sufficient for such a characterization. Either way, I understand your point. I can't speak to the varying levels of competition among different programs, which is why I said it's difficult to really grasp definitive answers from something that, to me at least, seems pretty subjective.
  11. There were plenty of stupid people in my classes. Perhaps they're not inclined to take up advanced number theory or whatever, but they also weren't doing well in my classes either. Perhaps they would have completely failed a science course whereas they JUST got by in a social science class. They really weren't going to perform well either way, though.
  12. Do yall think a good student could excel at both types of programs given sufficient time and practice? Or are we good insofar as we stick to what got us here? Also, if a humanities program is less challenging than a science program, does my A average mean less than a science student's A average?
  13. If everyone who decided to sign up for a chem degree was good at chem then what would the grade distribution look like? I agree that a science program is harder than a non-science program, but that's likely in part because I find polisci easier than chem. I don't know how skewed my opinion is based on the personal difficulty those subjects present me with.
  14. Someone who excels at, say, Political Science may find a program like Biochem very difficult. Similarly, someone who is naturally good at picking up on math or hard-science may be terrible at writing the papers the Polisci student is required to. This is all very subjective, so it doesn't mean much to compare the difficulty of programs. I found my non-science undergrad to be easy and likely would have struggled more in a science program, yet I'm sure someone that's done just as well in the sciences would experience the same challenge if they did my work. I don't think comparing the difficulty of these programs is as easy as it seems.
  15. I think you're in a shitty position based off your stats. Also not sure how much you'll be able to increase your LSAT score if you gave adequate time and practice for it. I've seen people around me waste a lot of time and money trying to get into law school when it was clear that it wasn't going to work out. If you were my friend, I'd probably tell you to move on and stop wasting your time. Sometimes people need to come to these realizations on their own, though. If you still believe in yourself then go for it once more. If you want to get better help and practice for the LSAT, I recommend 7sage's ultimate package. It's costly but I think it can help you improve a good amount.
