Thanks for your responses, I'm relieved to see that I'm not alone.  As far as my questions, they weren't intended to say "look at me" whatsoever but I do admit that it's hard to think of precise logic being used in a question with dinosaurs around cavemen asking me to find the most scientific explanation.  In my major I took three courses in Environmental Law and also admit that the majority of it seems to revolve around permitting (hardly an Environmental Science).  I was encouraged to see how Environmental Lawyers play a role at the EPA but maybe this is just a small group.  IP Law was my second choice but it doesn't seem to be useful in Environmental Policy and legislation.  Thanks for all of your advice and help again.

Hello, I recently graduated with a degree in environmental science and management.  During my years in college I'm proud to say I had several jobs in R&D researching viable alternative fuels and sustainable innovations for the near future.  I work with bio-fuel, hydrogen fuel, electric and hybrid technologies.  My course work included 5 semesters of upper level chemistry, 4 semesters of geology and calculus naturally.  I graduated an A student.  I was told by my professors and friends that Environmental science is very hot right now in law and that a rapidly expanding field right now is Environmental Law.  I took the LSAT in June without preparation and did poorly, 140.  I decided to take a Kaplan LSAT prep course of which I'm currently taking but am routinely humiliated for asking questions in class by students with degrees in philosophy and political science.  I seem especially targeted by them when I mention anything regarding a question based on a science itself.  Worse, this situation not only makes me feel like I'm back in high school but also, that I'm not "cool" enough to be a law student?  Perhaps my confidence is shaken by apparently being the only non-humanities graduate in class but I truly do want to contribute to environmental law and be an active environmental lawyer.  The fact is the LSAT is not coming easily to me and according to the majority of LSAT students in my class, science graduates are out of place in the law field altogether.  My question is, is this true?  I would like to acquire feedback from different sources than my classmates if possible? Do I have any hope as a lawyer with a background in science?  Thank you
