How would it be possible to schedule all of your classes on one day?

I think it’s possible with a 4-credit externship and three 3-credit classes that meet on the same day. Or some combination of 3-credit classes and workshops or a moot. 
2 days/week is not that unusual but one day is almost impossible unless you don’t care about the classes you’re taking.

Possible with two externships and two three-credit classes. Or one externship and three three-credit classes. Or externship and dls and two three-credit classes. Or honestly just stop going to classes as a 3L. Source: HH in a paper class I attended 5/12 times.

That would be virtually impossible if you cared at all about what classes you were taking, which all law students should.  I don't understand why anyone would want to do that, even if it were possible. What about ECs? Spending only one day a week on campus, only attending classes that fit into such a schedule, sounds ridiculous to me.

Sometimes students have other demands, eg kids, that limit their involvement for ecs, etc. Re classes by the time you get to third year you've already taken most of the ones you want. For me personally law school in 3L just seems to be going through the motions. I was involved in ECs but found them not satisfying. Much ado about nothing.

My experience was very different than yours. There were far more classes that I was interested in taking than I had time for in three years. I also enjoyed my ECs all three years, other than when people committed to something so they could put it on their resume, but then rarely if ever actually showed up to do the work. 

I'm sorry your law school experience wasn't a good one. That's unfortunate. Measuring the value of a class by being able to get a high grade without attending regularly, also unfortunate. Lest prospective students see your experience as the norm, I will say that it wasn't/isn't the experience of any lawyers/current students than I know.

That's fair. To be honest, there are quite a few like me. Lots of friends to be made in law school, but the content of the classes and the pettiness of some students in particular I think can turn away many from law school related social and extra curricular events. 

For prospective students, they should know a good number of students -- the silent majority if you will -- only attend classes and are minimally involved. I would wager a similarly high number don't like their classes by third year.

    • i really think it depends on the person- using 7sage alone did not give me that 'aha' moment that broke me into the 160s, while powerscore was able to. i agree that the naming culture is unnecessary for learners like us- its to powerscores benefit so they can trademark it and claim it as their own. regardless, the concepts explained in the weird names did me well. something i didnt like from bible was the double not arrow with the slash across the middle. other than that i think the logic content waspretty similar in both 7sage and powerscore? i liked how powerscore didn't put too much emphasis on logic.   jy's explanations are great and im not disagreeing on that. i met him in a real life course and was impressed by his intelligence. however i derived more point gains from LR bible because it aligned with myself well. like i mentioned above i was less engaged with 7sage. it's a personal preference and it really depends on the student. you're right, 7sage's most value comes from the video explanations and i definitely received a lot of benefits from it. their review methods are not exclusive to them but the BR method? fantastic. foolproofing? awesome. i havent tried lsathacks but they seem pretty well attested to as well.    i'm on pt78, planning on finishing the rest by the march exam date. i started from pt 60. after the bible brought me my first 160, i reviewed my wrong answers by myself and supplemented 7sage's LR explanation videos for all the questions and now i score consistently in the mid-high160s with a few 170s. i think i can break 170 consistently but its not a score i need. again i think the best combination of lsat material is powerscore + 7sage, with equal credits to both!
    • Just for further clarification, session in this case means 'semester', right?
    • That's a pretty good sign to go with your gut. Trust me, no one will look down on you for choosing McGill over UofT. 
    • If accepted it will be off of the waitlist 
    • The most value from 7sage is in the video explanations of the questions themselves. 7sages whole philosophy is on the backend review of each section you do. JY's explanations are fantastic and it's from those that you really start getting the benefit from 7sage. I find JY's and lsathacks have the best explanations for LR questions in the business.   I found both 7sage and powerscore to be logic heavy but the way 7sage treats it is more applicable to the test material. Powerscore requires you to learn a different set of namenculture and symbols for intersectionality in LR, conditionality in LR and yet another set for logic games. 7sage keeps it the same across all three and the grouping of logical indicators lends to faster times imo.    How far along are you in your prep? Did you hit the 80's in the pt's yet?
