Studying for the LSAT / X GPA, Y LSAT... What to do?
« on: March 07, 2011, 09:38:57 PM »
I am a junior at a CUNY college in New York. I currently have a GPA of about 3.9. (It may go down a bit this semester which isn't good) So far I took a couple of LSATs and I keep scoring roughly around 152. I have not taken an LSAT course, but will be taking one in the summer with the exam on October 1. I work in a law firm, but don't have much outstanding extracurricular.

If I want to stay in NY for law school, what do you suggest is the best law school for me? CUNY?

Thanks for the advice, everyone. I am going to be looking into what course to take. I've heard good things about testmasters (nyc), but that may be skewed since I heard about it from a limited amount of people. I'd be happy to take suggestions.

I am planning on applying to law school for fall 2012. I am thinking of taking it in June or next October. I would prefer June, but then I'm not sure if I will have enough time to invest in a prep course before then since I am going to school full time and working part time.

That sounds like quite a reach. Good luck. I scored 150 on my diagnostic and I'm pretty nervous about being able to reach 165.

Thanks. I'm just trying to be realistic, I'm not a gifted test taker by nature. I just want to be reasonable, bringing up my score from 150 to 165 could be attainable, right?

Hi everyone,

I took my first diagnostic LSAT today- one of those free ones offered by Kaplan. I have flipped through some LSAT books to see the kind of questions the LSAT contains, but have not done any preparation.

Anyway, I scored a 150. I am about to start my junior year of college. I currently have a 3.87 GPA and work in a law firm. Ideally, I would like to get into Cardozo (Yeshiva University) or Brooklyn Law School. What LSAT score do you think I should be striving for (165?) and how much preparation do you think it will entail?

Thanks a lot everyone.
