I got an acceptance email but it doesn't say anything about scholarship. Does that mean I didn't get any or they'll send more info soon? Does anyone know? I'm kinda sad

Anyone get in today?
@future-property-lawyer: how did you get your lsat score so high? im like struggling lol
I’m checking status on here for a friend who is applying this year. I’m applying next cycle. I just put in consistency over a year and drilled into what I was weak in.
@HideousWonderfulMongrel: games was / is my strong suit. I’m taking attempt 4 in June to try for 170. If games are weak for you dw about the LSAT until August. RC is where I miss points still and don’t feel qualified to help, but read for a general idea. LR it took a lot of drilling to notice trends in question types.
Anyone apply to the online jd program?
Anyone going to the event this Saturday?
13:38
@TheCountofMontecristo: yesssssirrrreee, you?
@future-property-lawyer: what program did you use to study? I am using blueprint, but the concepts are like not sticking. I am thinking of tutoring but its really expensive
i hope you get the 170!!!
@HideousWonderfulMongrel: I tried blueprint initially but thought it was cringe and actually scored less than my diagnostic. I use 7 sage personally for games, I use the loophole book for LR, and RC hero for RC. So far it’s helped a ton. Diagnostic was June 2023 at 139 for reference.
@germster: yes I requested the day off from work.
7sage is king
Just withdrew my acceptance and aid money here. Good luck all who are still waiting.
@TheCountofMontecristo: what program are you doing?
