How do you afford law school?

I hope you are going to give back once you are a lawyer.

This won't be possible as my family and I already ate the food we received.

Are you being intentionally thick?

I used the local Tim Hortons WiFi and I relied on my city's food bank.

PSA: please don't be this frugal (unless you need to be to survive).

Jesus, the idea that the food bank would be viewed as a way to save money, and not a lifeline for those who actually need it is just..... I don’t even know.

or is too dumb to understand that "give back" referred to donations. 

I know I was the original person to raise an issue with their response to Mal, but to be fair to them: if their english is second language and a work in progress, it's possible they misunderstood Mal.

But if that's true, I'd be very surprised to see them having gotten through law school at all. So it's unlikely.

@student0033 is either a troll or they are a very strange character in general. I just remembered that not only did they do these bizarre posts boasting about exploiting food banks to pay for law school, but they also:

-Tried to condescendingly lecture @ProfReader about how law professors supposedly grade (with an assertion about grading that any law student, let alone professor, should have been aware was clearly incorrect).

-Posted a strange and comical list of "extracurriculars" they included in their law school application, which consisted of participation in multiple dodgeball events, playing video games, preparing food for eating competitions and cutting their neighbour's lawn.

-Made a number of posts claiming that typing speed is one of the most important aspects to getting strong grades in law school.

On all of the above occasions, people weren't sure whether they were serious or not, the posts were just so weird. This is a recurring theme with them.

I'll leave that up to the readers to decide. As Louis CK says, "you don't get to decide if you're an a***ole. Other people get to decide that." I will leave it to the learned forum members to decide on this.

To clarify, I was an executive of an e-sports gaming club. During my undergraduate studies, I increased membership by over 400% and networked with international sponsors to solicit funding for our on-campus events. I am also currently a member of one of two competing e-sports organizations at my new university and have brought a lot to the table this year. Despite COVID-19, our club is flourishing. As for your "comical" adjective used to describe my ECs list, I find that silly and spiteful.

Maybe you don't care about any of that, and fair enough. But I'd advise you not to proudly announce it to your classmates and colleagues the way you did here. 

The bleeding hearts movement that has precipitated in this thread made many assumptions about my personal/family/ethnic status. No one asked me how many dependents I support, and no one asked me what my financial situation was in years previous.

    • Register for the exam, then all you have to do is email them that you're taking that exam (or indicate in your application) and they will hold off until January; schools don't even reject until way later.
    • I went from scoring pretty low on LG to -1/-2 by: 1. Reading the powerscore LG bible  2. Drilling LG by type (grouping, linear, hybrid) untimed and then timed 3. Drilling full timed sections, watching the 7sage explanation for each game and re-doing the ones where I missed inferences! I hope that helps! Good luck
    • I did the same thing. Could not find time to study at all.
    • I won't discuss this point further with either you or @QuincyWagstaff as you have seemingly no desire to change your ways. This is unfortunate and we all lose out. For others, perhaps more interested in learning about things, statistical significance can be found in any non-zero correlation given a sufficient sample size despite the differentiation that QW distinguishes as being an important one. It is something that has also given rise to the term "practical significance", to which QW and CH appear to be unware of. To put is succinctly, the difference between significant and insignificant is not itself significant.  Edit -Then again, I am on the spectrum. So maybe it's that.  
    • Hey, so I'm planning to retake the LSAT in Jan and wondering if i should include an addendum saying I'm retaking in Jan, was not able to do as well on my initial test. I have not registered for the Jan test, I'm just scared they'll pass my application after seeing my score. I did indicate on OLSAS that I intend to take the Jan test, but have not physically registered for it yet.
