I took it last October and I got a 160 after blowing part of my best section. Don't let your score get you down. I cried and cried and was depressed for a while as I did so much better on practice tests. But I got into University of Baltimore with a full scholarship. The school might not have a high ranking but it is a very good school, IMO, regionally. There are a lot over undervalued schools out there.

I get lots of lawyer jokes that are rude and am told that I have to learn to deal with it. I am constantly put in a position where I feel some need to justify my decision because of the negative perceptions people have about lawyers. Even people who know me seem to think I am in it for the money at first. I also sometimes run into people who treat me like a trick pony and quiz me on legal and government issues. I just refuse to participate anymore and let people think what they want.
Oh, but my favorite was when I told a couple of people who know me, but not very well, and who went to law school themselves, that I was going to law school. I got youwant to go to lawschool?! Nice.
I had serious problems with the logic games, so I took the Power Score full length course. I missed a couple of classes and did not do all of the work and it still helped a lot. Towards the end I did almost all of the practice tests and questions, and I was regularly getting all of the reading comp and logical reasoning questions correct. I saw some imporovement in my games too. I am glad that I took it because I really screwed up during the actualy test but still got a 160. I was doing much better on the practice tests.
