thanks for your replies. to add a little more info, i took the oct 2005 lsat and got 150...yes i sucked. I prefer to retake before I actually apply to law school. The thing is right now im still paying off my loans for my undergrad. Through my job I am able to get some funding for law school and the difference id have to pay outa my pocket. I dont mind that but at this time it doesnt seem ideal to be paying for law school outa my pocket while still taking care of my loan. Since i am in an engineering position, my job will cover probably full cost for an engineering degree (MS) so i figured ill kill two birds with one stone, get my MS while i pay off my loan, then take a crack at law school. This plan actually works better for wut i intend to do, that is take the PE exam. I wont be eligible until around 2008 (need four years design experience) and i would prefer not to have to study and take the PE exam while im law school. The way I have it planned out, after finished the MS, I would have time to take the april PE and then start the JD that fall. Another side note, my job offers a PE review course for free and taking that while in law school would prob not be possible. So yea sorry for the long story but my main concern was would the admission process question as to why I took the LSAT in 2006 but am applying in say 2008. A strategy I was comtemplating is commenting on that in my personal statement somehow.
but yea I see wut SCgrad is saying
