-It is just to hard to figure out. 159 worst case 168 best is about all I can guess. I am leaving for Europe today so at least that is 2 weeks that I won't have to think about it every damn second. The suspense is killing me!

Ok, I am kinda freaking out now. As many here probably know I have sh@#$y grades. about a 2.1 (all transcripts not in yet hoping that the 4or 5 JC classes will help) My UGPA was a 2.01 (one 100th of a point to spare, yeehaw!) Anyway. I just found the breakdown of the school I want to go to, South Texas College of Law on LSAC. It looks like this for Apps with GPA of 2.0-2.24  {LSAT 170-180 1 app 0 acc} {165-169 1app 0acc}  {160-164 7apps 1acc}  {155-159 10app 1 acc} So the two people with higher LSAT (than my practice scores) and my GPA WERE REJECTED! What the hell. So it looks like I have a 1 in 20 chance? What are they looking for? I have 5 years work exp. I had a weak majorthough. Lots of extra curr. Worked full time blaa blaa blaa. What do you guys think I need to increase my chances. I was thinking all along if I did really well on the LSAT then it was a definate.I mean this IS a T4 school and  according to all of the calculators it was 80-90% This does not look like 80-90% to me! What will help! Good LOR, Awesome PS, addendum? Man I am confused now

I got one from Radioshack $20 -Quit working- Went to grocery store got a digital cooking timer that counts up or down and you can set the time AND very big numbers. $7. I did have to open it up and cut the wires to the speaker. This was really easy though.

I have done all I can do. Unless I am possesed by an evil "games" spirit, I will not hit that 170 mark. Maybe I should get out my Quija board? Oh well I have done all I can do and if I get a 164 like my last 3 practice it will give me a high enough index to have a pretty good chance getting into where I want to go. I know there is nothing more I can do but Damn I am nervous! I just need to chill out I guess. Leave it in the hands of the man!

This one got me too. Luckily (or unluckily) I only can finish 3 games in time and only had a couple of minutes to look at this one. I got the first question right just by the rules but did not even get to any more of the questions. I went back and looked at it and thought "what the hell, I am not even going to TRY this one" Obviously games are not my strongpoint. I just feel smart in the fact that I did not even try this one!

graduated this past December with a 2.59, after transfering from a previous college with an even lower gpa.  I am assuming that when the two are averaged out my gpa will be about a 2.2.  I had a rough time with an eating disorder and depression . . . and recently started getting treatment for my problems.  I believe that I will be able to do really well on the LSAT (I got a 1480 on my SATs and graduated from high school with a 3.. 

I really want to be a lawyer and one day a Law Professor!! Do I have a chance?  Is there anything I can do to be a competitive canidate for a top 100 like Northeastern, Catholic, Brooklyn, or Rutgers?

All you can do is try. I too have about a 2.2 GPA No excuses I just did not try in college and my grades reflect that. If you really want it bad enough there is always a way. And if you don't get into a top 100 you can surely get into a TTTT school if you do well on the LSAT. Actually it's kinda cool because I didn't have to do much in college and I can make up for it on 1 test (hopefully). Just make up for it with a good LSAT
