Cryptic question but boy do I have an answer: social ease. What do you do? It's the easiest answer: "lawyer".  No need to explain how you review basket weaving tutorials or even that you have some respectable but hard-to-define job like 'operations analyst at bank X'. It's like being married. Do you have a wife? The answer is a simple "yes". It's not, "I have a girlfriend [terminology cringe] but we've been off and on for 3 years and I don't know where she is right now."

That's a pretty small benefit compared to the costs though lol.

If I don't want to discuss my day I just tell folks I was busy at work and I'm really not allowed to talk about it.

On the other hand, I was speaking with a wills/estates lawyer the other day who said that when she tells someone she's a lawyer, they'll often ask for advice on whatever criminal or civil issue they've had and be shocked when she doesn't immediately know the answer.

This makes you sound like a spy. Or a government contractor. No, definitely spy.

    • Absolument! J'ai travaill√© dans deux gros cabinets √† Montr√©al et on avait un certain nombre d'avocats qui n'avaient pas obtenus de stage par la Course et qui n'avaient pas oeuvr√© en grand cabinet pour d√©buter leur carri√®re. Ceci √©tant dit, tu peux avoir une super belle carri√®re sans pratiquer en grand cabinet. J'ai travaill√© dans des petits cabinets aussi avec d'excellents avocats qui se sont b√Ętit de superbes pratiques et certains qui sont maintenant rendus juges. ¬† Ceci r√©pond tr√®s bien √† ta question!
    • 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¬†
