Ok, maybe I wasn't clear the first time, so I'll break it down:
1) The job market sucks if you're not at a top school, so you need a 170+ score to go anywhere T14 - especially if you're a white male. Our country currently hates white males. Don't know why.
2) Practice tests are NOT good indicators of your performance on test day (b/c it's not easy to recreate the actual testing environment, and you're probably cheating).
3) If you haven't taken a serious LSAT prep course, and you self-prep'd, you're probably in serious trouble (b/c the LSAT is DEFINITELY a preparedness test, NOT a "natural intelligence" affair).
4) Even if you score a 170+, some guy, like me, will probably destroy your GPA your first year because he's so pissed about his LSAT performance that he gets all A's to prove the test is crap.
** If you're still reading, and you're still interested in law school - know this - if you want anything bad enough, you'll probably get it one way or another... Even if that means transferring schools after your first year... But it's a tough road... Are you ready for that? Because if you aren't, and you're way too soft inside, you might not make it past your first semester... Several law students commit suicide each year either b/c they realize they won't be in biglaw when they graduate and cannot pay off the loans. Several students report working harder than they ever have before only to finish at the bottom of their class... What will you do if this happens? Three years of your life will disappear in the blink of an eye once you start, are you sure you will get a job that makes that exchange worth it?
I am trying to scare you a bit, but I'm not lying, don't waste your life just because you can't think of anything else to do. YOU HAVE TO WANT THIS REALLY BAD OR YOU'LL NEVER MAKE IT.
whoa. its obvious that the op is a bit naive, but this is over the top.
