I do not believe in grade deflation when someone scores a 2.9 That GPA is more indicative of lazyness. (I have a 2.9) You have to be careful with the LSAT and stop looking ahead. The odds are against you scoring better than 150-something with a 2.9, and if you focus on what schools to apply to and all the other stuff of LS and forget about the LSAT (because you believe you are smart enough and the 2.9 is de-flated, etc...), you will end up with that 150-something. My advice is to focus intensely on the LSAT and study as if your life depended on it (because it does), and do NOT think about applying to LS yet.
If you crack 160, then start thinking about what schools. If you don't (and most likely you wont: Again, I am going with the odds, not you particularly), then ask yourself if you really, really want to go to LS, and get ready for the unranked schools.
(To those that have a 2.9 and scored higher than 165, congratulations, but you are a statistical anomally, so it is better not to encourage this poster, as possible as it is that she scores the same.)
