Studying for the LSAT / Deciding Whether to Try Again
« on: January 06, 2011, 07:43:44 AM »
I took the LSATs twice last year, bombing my first time (148) and getting a marginal score the second time (154).  I didn't make any of my preferred schools (Drexel, Rutgers, or Seton Hall) and after being burnt out I gave up.  I still feel a passion for going to law school, and I was wondering if posters here would think it would be a good idea to try again.  I know the schools can see my previous scores, and being that my gpa isn't competitive (3.2 adjusted) what would be the chances on pulling my score up enough to be considered for my schools?  I took a long Kaplan course the first time around which helped pull me from a 146 to 154 (158 being the highest score).  If I take Powerscore or Testmaster, would I be able to see another improvement?  Is it worth another grand and the time spent studying to try again, with my previous history?  Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: 143 on My Diagnostic :( !!

Honestly that makes me feel a lot better. I have been trying to search for something like this on the web but to no avail. I still can't help but feel anxious and overwhelmed as I bombed my first LSAT and I'm given four phonebook size books to go through. I guess I need to go through the course, because I am a complete LSAT newbie. I promised myself I would try my hardest for this course and I know for a fact I am better then a 143. I'm really hoping I could achieve something in the 60's or mid-to high 50's. Anyway, thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / 143 on My Diagnostic :( !!

I just took my Kaplan diagnostic LSAT. It was the first time for me of ever looking at LSAT questions. Man, you guys weren't kidding when you said it was hard. I didn't finish one section on time, and instead picked random bubbles as my answer to finish. It's the intensive course, so I'll be taking it all summer. Anyone have any advice? How much of an improvement can I expect? Has anyone scored this low on the diagnostic and gone onto getting in the 160's?

Studying for the LSAT / Which LSAT Prep Course to Take?
« on: May 31, 2009, 06:51:06 AM »
Hi, I was going to study for Law School for the fall test. I think I might need a lot of help with the LSATs as my SAT score was a 1050 (granted I didn't study really at all for it). So I was going to take the "LSAT Extreme" course in New Brunswick, NJ. It lasts from about mid June to mid August.

However, after my first post here someone suggested for me to take a class with Testmasters or Powerscore. It might work out to be about the same price as the Kaplan LSAT extreme, but it's less class meeting time and more money. Is it worth it? Does Kaplan stink?

Anyone have any other advice for me? Thanks!

Hey everyone. I just graduated Rutgers a couple days ago, and I wasn't able to pull my GPA up enough I feel like. I'm an Econ major, and I was really thinking about law school. In fact, I was all set to take the Kaplan extreme LSAT course. I found out I got a B in one of my easy classes this year which crushed my spirits just now. I thought if I aced it or at least had gotten a B+ I could have pulled a 3.4. But now I have a 3.36. Should I even bother with the LSAT course and taking the LSAT? Is my GPA going to pull me down badly?m I wasn't looking to get into Harvard or Yale, but I was hoping I could get into a decent to good school with a good showing on the LSAT, maybe Rutgers? Now I don't know what my chances look like.

Really bummed out right about now.  :'(
