Studying for the LSAT / For those who have taken the LSAT....

Law School Admissions / Applying Late
« on: September 18, 2006, 05:39:17 PM »
How detrimental do you guys think applying in January for '07 admission would be?  I want to raise my GPA and secure a letter of reccomendation this semester, and I don't want to wait another year to go to law school.  My LSAT is 166 and I'm hoping my GPA will be 3.7ish by the end of the semester.  I'm thinking about applying to some top 25 schools, with only a few in the top 10.  I probably have a low chance of getting in to the top 10 schools even if I applied early.

Does Harvard average LSAT scores or take the highest?

I was wondering how you all think law schools will view a  semester of withdrawals, even with a high GPA, a 165 LSAT, and all A's in subsequent coursework. 

Choosing the Right Law School / Targets for 166

What are the target schools for a 166 LSAT?

Studying for the LSAT / Should I Retake?
« on: November 10, 2005, 06:34:49 PM »

I have taken the LSAT twice. Cancelled the first time and got a 166 the second time.  Although it is a solid score, I was aiming for a 170.  I'm contemplating retaking in December.  I want to have a chance at top ten schools. However, taking the LSAT 3 times, even if I do significantly better, probably doesn't look good.  What do you all think???

Choosing the Right Law School / Stanford

According to US News, Stanford's 25th percentile LSAT score is 166.  Why so low compared to Harvard and Yale?  Does Stanford place more emphasis on soft factors than the other two "Big Three"? 

Choosing the Right Law School / 3.7, 166
« on: October 26, 2005, 04:37:11 PM »
Hello All!  This is my first post on this great forum.  I wish I had known about it before I took the LAST in October. 

Now I'm thinking about where to apply NEXT year. 

Here are my numbers: GPA 3.7, and LSAT 166.

Before I go any further, let me add some backround info.  I dropped out of college after finishing 3 years, and am presently taking time off.  I know that is a BAD thing to have on a resume.  However, I haven't goofed around in my time off.  In only a year and a half, I've become a manager at a big city Walgreens.  I started out as a cashier.  That real world experience should bolster my application somewhat, right?  And when I go back to school in the Spring, it will be at a different place than my previous school, and I will only go part time.

But I'll be eligible to apply to law school next year.

These are the schools I'm thinking about applying to:

George Washington

What are my chances?  Also, would it help to apply to a school with a binding early decision program? 

I look forward to reading your feedback.  Thanks!
