Charles Lindbergh, a completely unknown air-mail pilot, flew his way into history. He was the first person to complete a solo, nonstop flight from New York City to Paris. When he landed in Paris, a crowd of about 150,000 people were there to greet him. When he finally got back to New York City, a crowd of 200,000 welcomed him back. To put that into perspective, Beyonce on average only manages to turn out 45,000 people. Lindbergh was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor — an award usually reserved for combat veterans. He was named “Man of the Year” by the Times. The U.S. Post Office commemorated his flight with a 10-cent stamp. Lindbergh went on to use his fame to help popularize commercial aviation.
On my way to the 99th percentile, I had three significant LSAT scores. My first practice LSAT, my first official LSAT, and my second official LSAT scores.
The First Practice Test
I took my first practice LSAT at a Starbucks. A friend of mine came along and also did a practice test. I didn’t know anything about what would be on the test, I just had some vague ideas about how it’s pretty hard-to-impossible to study for, so my first score better be good.
