Law School Admissions / First full week of February, 2008: Best Week Ever?
« on: February 04, 2008, 05:05:08 AM »
So, what do we think?  Is it going to be a slow week this week, or will the momentum continue.  Are we done with slow weeks for good?

I tried to create a poll to this effect, but I couldn't figure out how to do it.

Law School Admissions / 166 is the worst LSAT score. Discuss.
« on: January 30, 2008, 07:31:35 AM »

Let me first say that this topic is not meant to inspire paranoia in those who scored a 166, or anger in those who scored less, or fury in thoe who scored much less.  Clearly, a 166 is an objectively good was in the 94th percetile when I got it two years ago, at least.

Here's what I'm saying:

If you are trying to get into the T14, the 166 is complete torture.  With a 165, well, you're not expecting much.  A 167, you're in passable shape.  But a 166...It's almost like 166 is some sort of unspoken cut-off.

For most people, either you're pairing it with a mediocre GPA, in which case the T14 will be spotty at best.  For some, you're pairing it with an awesome GPA, but you'll still be iffy in most places, and at the very least you'll miss out on the 100K or so in scholarship money that you'd get if your LSAT was 7-10 points higher.  Seems like you'd always wonder how things could have been different with even a few more points.

I struggled with whether or not to even post this thread for fear that it would come off obnoxious or arrogant, but I've been reading a lot of LSNs with 166ers, and we've had a lot of discussion from 166ers on here, so it's been on my mind.  I'm definitely coming at this with a bias...the first time I applied I rolled with a 166, and it was a pretty demoralizing finish for me.

I'm curious to hear the thoughts of other folks on here.

...and let me re-emphasize, I submit this topic with all possible humility and respect.

Take care that you don't ask for too much too soon.  Wait your turn; in time, you'll get everything you want or need.  Be patient.
