What is the LSAT?

Figuring this test out

Windsor MIT '22, Harvard College Advisor

I am the half of LSD that didn't take the LSAT, or go to law school (Sorry about that). But I did go to MIT business school while surrounded by law students and lawyers, so I am somewhat qualified to talk about the intricacies of law school apps and finances.

Windsor (the dog) didn't write this but he WAS a Resident Tutor and career advisor at Harvard College with me, so deserves some credit.

45% of the class is doing BL, I think Fordham knows they dont need to give out as much money to attract the class they want
19:02
it kinda sucks, but they have a lot of bargaining power because of their place in nY
19:02
people want BL and will pay for it tbh

@CanadaGoose: Are you attending Fordham on sticker? How did you weigh money vs BC?
19:03
@ColtsForTheShoe: No? 115K scholly. 105K base + 10K in need.
19:03
I sometimes peruse r/applyingtocollege for the same reason. Yesterday some kid was worried barnard wouldnt give enough name recognition for law school
19:03
BC gave less and I didn't want to practice in Boston after graduation. That simple, tbh.
