Current Law Students / Re: LSAT Score no predictor of success

LISTEN.....The LSAT is not a predictive tool like the the law schools treat it.  I scored a 158 and I am in the top 20% at oneof the finest law schools in America.  Law school has to do more with the individual.  If you put in the time and effort, and DO NOT get caught up in the BS of competition, etc. you will do fine.  Most of the students I have encountered at school are brilliant, BUT they do not put in the reqired time to understand the material in a way that allows them to capitalize on law school exams.  Most are partying, not prepared, and use the time to get acquainted with males or females on campus.  Anyways, the LSAT has no real value when determining how a particular student will do in law school.  I suggest putting a lot of time into reading each case, using secondary sources to really get a grasp for the law you will be discussing daily in class, and learning how to write effectively.  Also, talk to your professors.....don't be scared to go to their offices and ask them questions.  Most of us (excluding merit scholars, etc.) are paying a ton of moiney to go to law school.  Make the professors earn their money and YOU will be rewarded.....
