Studying for the LSAT / question regarding LSAT and law schools
« on: October 21, 2005, 04:30:55 PM »
Does anyone have a list of the names of law schools that takes the higher of the LSAT scores as opposed to averaging them? I saw it posted once, a while back. I am asking because I just got my score and got only 5 points higher than I did on the first one which wasn't that great anyway. If anyone has the list please share. Thanks!!

Btw....F**K the LSAT! It is the stupidest test I have ever taken in my life and it makes me feel stupid when I know I'm not!!!!

Studying for the LSAT / Official LSAT Tests
« on: July 14, 2005, 04:14:56 PM »
For those who haven't bought the set of 10 Official LSAT books yet, if you buy it from its about $10 cheaper per book than it would be at the LSAC website which charges $30 per book as opposed to $19.80 on

The exact same thing happened to me. I was scoring consistently within the 158-163 range on all my practice exams, then come day of the real exam (I took it in June) I scored a 151. It was pretty devastating, but its too late to cancel my score now so the only thing I can do is retake in Oct. and I know that I will do better. I was super nervous in June (it was my first time taking it) and put way too much pressure on myself when studying and while I was taking the exam. When I take it in Oct. I know I will be more relaxed and this time around I will definitely change my study habits. I think instead of pushing myself to cram in test after test as I did before, I will focus more on a couple of timed sections a day and focus more on getting the answers right and why I'm getting them wrong instead of focusing on answering all the questions on time.

My low score pretty much has me screwed, but I'm confident that I will do better (shooting for mid-high 160s). Even if I got a 170 (which is impossible for me), my average is still 160 which is not at all a competitive score for the schools I want to go to, but I'm just telling myself this time around that I will do the best that I can, not freak myself out, and take it more lightly, so that the same thing won't happen again. I seriously turned into a basketcase the whole time I was studying for the June LSAT. I never want to be that way again.

I guess all you can tell yourself is that you know you can do better, be diligent and patient with yourself while studying again, and know that you will kick ass the next time you take it instead of having the mentality I had before - the "OMG I have to score at least a 160 or I'm doomed" mentality...

Thanks for all of your replies, it definetly makes me feel a lot better to know that they are other people out there who feel me on my situation. I am going to start studying for the October LSAT  and will be sure to take into account some of the studying strategies posted that I did not use before.

One more question though, is it really true that if I score 10 points higher than my first score some laws schools disregard my first score??

Thanks again!!!!  :)

I took the June LSAT and expected to score within the high 150s to low-mid 160s range, the range I had consistently been scoring in for the past 1/2 yr. taking practice tests. However, on the actual exam I scored a 151!!!! I was so depressed ever since I got my score that I contemplated giving up going to law school altogether. My goal is to get into a T2, there's no chance in hell I will get into a T1 with a 151 on my record. I graduated from U.C. Berkeley with an UGPA of 3.2. What type of schools can I get into with my current numbers, and what would I need to score on the October LSAT to be able to achieve my goal of getting into a T2??

I have a pretty good work and extra-curricular activities background, and have some pretty good LOR from my professors from college and from the attorneys at the law firm that I work for now as a corporate paralegal (a top tier firm). I am definitely going to take the LSAT again in Oct. and at this point I am not even nervous anymore, I am just pissed off. I think I stressed myself out too much the day of the exam, the June LSAT was not as difficult as I thought it would be, but still I scored a 151!! I'M PISSED!

I want to go to law school, I know I have what it takes to be a lawyer, all the attorneys that I work with here (mostly ivy-league graduates) encourage me to go to law school and tell me I'd make a great lawyer someday. But all that encouragement means *&^% if I don't have the numbers to get into a good school.

What should I do??? And can anyone give any tips on how I should be studying for the LSAT over the summer? I am planning to start again next week. I took a TM course, did the whole PS Logic Games and Logical Reasoning Bibles, AND did 20 practice tests. Am I just plain STUPID or is the LSAT just the most difficult test ever!?!

Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!!!

Studying for the LSAT / Can someone please answer my questions?!
« on: July 29, 2003, 08:45:10 PM »

I am planning to take my LSAT in December and am taking the Testmasters prep course which starts in October. Basically, I am hoping to go to law school the in fall 2004 (yeah I know its a little late to be taking the LSAT) and have no clue what the application process, admissions process, etc. is like. I've read up on what criteria they weigh admissions on but aren't sure if I should go soley on that. I just graduated this past May from a prestigious university with an ok GPA of 3.30. What do I need to score on my LSAT to make it into one of the top tier law schools??? Also will taking the LSAT in December be too late for me to apply for admission the following fall?

If someone could please answer my questions I would appreciate that soooo much!!! Thanks!

I am currently studying for the December LSAT and looking at the Princeton review book. It is really confusing me and I'm not doing so well on the tests. I am planning to take the testmasters course next month, should I just forget about the princeton review and wait for testmasters and study my butt off??

Studying for the LSAT / what do I need to score on the LSAT to...
« on: August 28, 2003, 09:00:10 AM »
I am planning to take my LSAT in December to apply for law school the following fall. (Yeah i know its a little late). Frankly, I am pretty oblivious to the law school applications process, what they expect, etc. So far I have graduated from Berkeley with a 3.29 GPA and have great letters of recommendation. What do i need to score on the LSAT in order to make it into one of the top tier schools? I would really like to go to school in Boston and am planning to apply for BU, BC. What do I need to score on my LSAt in order to get into one of those schools. And can anyone recommend any other good law schools in Boston?? I've heard Northeastern is a good school too.

Thanks so much~  :)
