Choosing the Right Law School / Re: National Scholar
« on: July 07, 2012, 04:33:03 PM »
Thank you all for your time and sound advice.  Each of you have contributed to my inner debate and eventual decision and I appreciate the wisdom and experiences you have shared! 

I will be retaking in Oct. (I have an LSAC fee waiver, so why not?).  I will have the opportunity to study harder and take many more practice tests than I did previously.  If I get a significantly higher score, great! If not, I'm pretty certain I won't do worse so no harm, no foul.

As for the rankings, I agree with many of the posters and have re-evaluated my original desires.  I would still love to attend Berkeley (and I will still apply), but I know that I would like to stay in the Northeast and will be focusing my search for a law school here. 

Again, I thank you all for responding to my post.  Although, like Legend so eloquently put, you are all anonymous posters - I believe you offered your advice and opinions with the intention of being helpful and that is exactly what you each have been!

Thank you for your insights and comments.  Logically I knew what the responses would be to my post (I have already registered to retake the LSAT in October. Thankfully it's not that big of a deal since I'm a senior and wasn't planning on applying until the 2012-2013 cycle anyway), but emotionally I was hoping I would get lucky and find someone with insider knowledge on a particular school that would say "No worries, school X loves Trumans!" or "Given your resume and diversity, school X would love to have you!"  Ahh the wishful thinking of 0Ls!  :D

Seriously though, I know I can do better on the LSAT if I give myself ample time to study (this spring/summer has been crazy with scholarship applications and interviews, internships, leadership weeks, etc.). I just wasn't able to put in the effort I know I should have.  With that said, do any of you know if there are schools out there who still average multiple LSAT scores, or do they all simply take the highest score into consideration?

Thanks again for your responses!
