Law School Applications / Re: Need some advice - PLEASE 3.8 GPA 145 LSAT

I'm not sure.  But if you're not going to put in work to improve your score then there isn't much of a point to taking it again.  Much of the LSAT is natural intelligence, but you need to learn the logic games.

You're not going to guess your way to 170, which is at least what you'll need to make up for the first score.

I don't know.  Did you study well for the LSAT?  If you did your best and only got 145 it's really doubtful you'll be able to pull your score up high enough for Michigan.  If there's a really good reason for your low score and you think you can score a 170 next time then go ahead.

With a 145 LSAT, you wouldn't get into Michigan even if you were an URM with a Noble Prize.

Sorry.

Check the box.  Then donate some money that you make from the good job that you'll get to groups that oppose affirmative action.

Technically you are considered caucasian. I'm Moroccan, so I looked into it pretty thoroughly. With respect to applications caucasian is equivalent with the US conception of "white," which includes Europeans, North Africans and MIddle Easterners.

Half the law school applications I've seen allow you to identify as middle eastern, sometimes under caucasian.  Why do they ask if there's no benefit?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: My LSAT refuses to go up?

My LSAT SCORE REFUSES TO GO ABOVE A 163. I have tried princeton and Kaplan? With no avail? Any suggestions, I am getting burnt in Logic Games?

I liked this logic games book.  It did wonders for my score.

Anyway, if that doesn't help or you've already tried it, then you may have hit your limit.  It's not written anywhere that everybody's score can rise to 180.  Some will hit a limit at 140, some 150, some 170.  A few take a few tests and end up with 180.  It depends on the person.

Lol at your "decline."  Nobody gets the exact same thing on every test.  Everybody fluctuates to some extent.

There's no reason that you can't sit down right now and get a 162.  It's just that three separate cancellations looks totally weird.  I can't imagine there would ever be a good explanation for it.

Where should I go next fall? / Help or hinderance?

After high school, I didn't know what I wanted to do so I went to community college full-time for three and a half years while working.  I then transferred to a state school.  I graduated after three years there.

My grades were never bad.  I ended up with a 3.8 GPA at the CC and 3.63 at the state school.  LSAC only counted the 3.63 as part of my GPA.  I did very well on the LSAT.

Is having so many years of undergrad work going to help or hurt?  On one hand it makes me look shiftless, but on the other hand I've heard people complaining that their transcripts are too thin and I certainly don't have that problem. 

I didn't really explain it in my essay, but I just pointed out that I worked during that time and talked about my job.
