Soft bigotry

Great for LSAT; however, they extol the soft bigotry of low expectations. Push leftists views.

Just starting my prep, but have learned a lot so far

This has been very informative. I’ll try and update my review when I’m further along. My cold diagnostic was a 156 so I’ll try and track progress as time goes on. There has been a lot of helpful info on admissions that I wouldn’t have considered. The personal statement portion of the show is entertaining. I laugh to myself in public when they are tearing them apart, but still get some good tips along the way.
