Ouch! That's what I was afraid of. With my GPA likely being worse than my LSAT, I was hoping for a boost. Not worried too much about UCLA, though I'd hate to move back home...

What's the general consensus about how being a California resident affects admission to Boalt? What about coming from another UC campus? I understand usually it's easier to be accepted in-state, but Boalt phrases their website oddly.
I chose above average. I'm hoping my soft factors will make me more attractive than similarly ranked applicants, since I don't have godly stats, though I think they're pretty good. Inner city kid, lots of diversity experience, some minor leadership stuff on campus and jobs, as well as starting college full-time before finishing a year in high school.
Actually, LSAC uses A- = 3.67, so if your GPA is different, there's another reason.
Thanks, I hope this works, but I haven't been able to try it yet due to LSAC downtime. I usually use a mac for everything but apps(until the new app system comes out!), so the finer points of fooling around with XP are lost on me.
It's never too early to start studying for the LSAT. I'm assuming you're on semesters, because if you're on quarters, the June LSAT is a bad time to take the LSAT. That being said, you might want to start taking a course a few months beforehand and maybe get your brain going right now by doing a few problems a week, just to get a general idea what it's like.

I actually went down a point from 170 to 169. But that's because, like you, I didn't finish the second logic games section. Part that annoys me is that on the "experimental" (which was a real one from 2001) I did perfectly and finished with plenty of time, which would've given me like a 175. Ah well..luck of the draw?
I'm hoping my actual score will be somewhere in between.
