A quick definition of perpetual edict:

A Perpetual Edict was a law or ordinance proclaimed by the emperor in imperial Rome. It had the force of law and was different from a rescript or decree. It was a constitution of the emperor acting on his own initiative. The term also refers to the urban praetor's edict in its permanent form, edited by Julian in A.D. 131 and given legislative force. This term originally had the narrower sense of the praetors' general edicts as opposed to edicts issued in specific cases.

@Thersh: is umn paying you their tuition for your attendance
15:21
@PsychaCola: yeah not sure if i did it right or not, my status checker said 57k. Wasn't sure if that was per semester, per year, or one time (i doubt this).
15:21
any insight welcome

@EloquentGunner: do you feel like you tutor properly?
[] ararara
15:23
My mindset, I tell the students to make something out of it and mostly just try to motivate them or focus on what is motivating them. Also to build healthy habits overall so that the studying isn’t unhealthy.

Because ultimately we know an endless amount about the test but how much of it’s going to rub off or what the outcome will be who knows

@Thersh: It should say somewhere whether it's per year or total. It is not per semester; Minnesota's cost of attendance is $74K/year ($84K/year out of state); even if they were offering you full tuition, room+board+expenses, and some kind of stipend, that would not add up to $114K per year

I wish more people would come into the chat and announce their As like @jack
Honestly I think the best general thing to teach someone for the lsat is basic propositional logic stuff a la modus ponens and whatnot
15:26
@jb2028: it says 57k and "yes" under renewable. There is no other info

15:26
best guess is 57k per year
15:26
sounds like per year, i'd guess you'll get an email further explaining it
half the questions are just "do you know that A->B does not mean ~A->~B
I'd guess 56k per year since their OOS tuition last year was $54,696. So exciting @thresh, congrats!!!!

If this happens, then that other things happens. That’s the whole lsat in a nutshell. Beyond the smoke and mirrors. It all makes sense.

Agree w/ @terriblytiredturtle, "Renewable" sounds like it's "renewable each year" (provided you don't flunk out/transfer/drop out to do an MFA instead)

Thanks @known and thanks everyone for deciphering that. Sorry if it caused any confusion
