Studying for the LSAT / Should I Retake?
« on: November 10, 2005, 07:34:49 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, 05:37:11 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:

BU
BC
George Washington
Cornell
Michigan
G-Town

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!
