Non-Traditional Students / Re: 164 or retake?
« on: July 10, 2008, 10:34:51 AM »
so here's my deal: I have a B.S. and M.S. in an engineering/physics discipline + 4 years experience as an engineer (several published papers, etc).  UGPA was only a 3.1 (with a steady upward trend), and i did well in grad school.  I got a 164 on the June 08 lsat after consistently getting 170+ on timed, realistic conditions practice tests.

1) What schools do I have a good shot at with these numbers and

2) Should I retake in Oct? 


Obviously depends on what school you want to attend.  Also, with your background, I'm sure you will appreciate some data.
Based on LSAC's repeater data, at a 164, 168 individuals improved their score, 7 remained the same, and 54 had worse scores.  The average new score is a 166.7 with a STDEV of 4.4.
