Seeking LSAT and JD/MSW advice

Hello! I graduated from Oberlin a year ago, and have been working as a legal assistant at an immigration nonprofit since then. I am starting to look into law school for Fall of 2018, and would love some advice on the LSAT.  I live in Tucson Arizona, and am trying to figure out the best course of action. The Kaplan LSAT classes are super pricey, and the U of A offers classes that are cheaper but still pricey.  Any recommendations on free or low cost classes? Or LSAT class scholarships? How does Kaplan compare to other lesser known classes? I am also considering pursuing a JD/MSW double degree to make myself a more rounded attorney capable of seeing clients beyond their strictly legal needs. Does anyone have experience with both? Thank you so much in advance!

NYC <--> Oberlin, Commencement 2017

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone was leaving Friday, May 19th and/or returning on Sunday, May 21st. Even a ride one way would be awesome, and of course I will pitch in with gas, tolls, driving, snacks, and company :D. Thanks! Molly '14
