Please feel free to discuss. Here is my view:
Prep Class: Lot of time spent studying material you may already know. Very expensive.
PowerScore Bible/Previous Tests: Can spend time focusing on specific weaknesses. Relatively inexpensive.
I have a buddy who is going to apply to law school next fall. He has a 3.9+ UGPA, URM, strong soft factors and one of the smart guys I know. I have helped him prep for the LSAT, and on the practice tests he flies through each section with very good accuracy. He is scoring 170-175 on the practice tests, when they are timed, in a live environment like a library. I don't see any reason he will not be able to score a 165-170 on an actual test, especially with another couple months to prep.
Anyway, he is not taking the test until October 4. 3.9 UGPA, URM, 170, he will be shooting for HYS. Is there enough time to get the results from the October 4 LSAT and put in decent applications, early enough in the cycle, to stand a legitimate shot at HYS?
In 20 years, your son or daughter comes to you and tells you that he/she are planning on attending law school. Unfortunately, your child only scored a 150 on the LSAT and was only able to get into T3/T4 schools. Would you tell your child to go to law school, do you believe it would be worth the investment for him/her to go to law school, knowing ahead of time that job prospects will be dismal upon graduation?
There are still a couple of schools I have not heard back from. Here is the catch, a few of these schools are T3s.
I took the February LSAT and did not apply until late February/early March. I really had no idea what to expect because of how late I applied. Since I applied late, I applied to a lot of schools.
I am happy I applied to a lot of schools because I got dinged from a few shockers, bottom T2, where I was toward the top of their 25-75% LSAT/UGPA. Anyway, I got into a number of T1 and T2s. I was not accepted anywhere T25, but I didn't apply to any T25s, so that was not a surprise.
Since I have been accepted to a number of T1s and T2s with some scholarship money, I don't understand why some T3s still haven't gotten back to me? It doesn't matter now because I have withdrawn from anything lower than T1 that hasn't sent me a decision by now. It is just baffling that some of these schools aren't more on the ball.
I guess this is good news for anyone looking at T3s. There are several spots that have opened up.
