Transferring / Re: Kent (2nd tier-66) or Depaul (3rd tier)?

Don't you see the OP has already been accepted by Kent, which is a second-tier? True, he was rejected by the other second-tier, Loyola,

Well, I guess Kent is not that "elite"! I went once there and I saw way too many races, black, Indian, Polish students with a thick accent, and so on.

I'd be suprised if most T2s dip below 160.

Some of them do if you have a stellar undergrad GPA. Not to mention affirmative action admissions.

In the real world, say in a big law firm, the atmosphere is not like that. It's the law school that is the most challenging time period of lawyers' life.

HA, this is truly beautiful!

Indeed it is! Anyway, I've got to go now and study a bit Property -- I have that crazy stuff to nail down RAP and Wait and See Doctrine!

Does anyone know of law schools that don't average lsat scores. i.e. will take the best score.  I took the LSAT twice 2 years ago and got a 158 and 164.  Both times I had problems; One time I misbubbled my answer sheet, and 1 time I got sick. There were a number of reasons that I didn't cancel my score: I didn't realize that all law schools average scores, I wasn't aware that I misbubbled, and I wasn't really interested in law school at the time. 
Anyway I took the LSAT again this past June and got a 171.  This is a huge difference and I was wondering if there were any good schools out there that would be sympathetic to my situation. 

If you have had for real these three scores, you're really unfortunate to be averaged to a 164. That's why I always stress that people should take LSAT only after they've practiced long enough, even if that would mean 2, 3 or even more years! I mean, it pays off in the long rum even if you'd spend years and years practicing with a stupid test like LSAT -- difference between a $125,000 salary fresh out of law school and a lousy $40,000 suck-ass public defender type of thing!

Socratic Method / Re: Do u get called on once or more than once???
« on: October 07, 2005, 04:25:51 PM »
Several of my friends adopt another strategy if called on but are unprepared: they just sit there without saying a word so that the pro will think they're absent.
