Studying for the LSAT / Re: Low Score for June LSAT
« on: July 01, 2007, 09:01:44 PM »
If I retake it in Sept it would be my third time!! Wouldn't that look bad? My score will not come in until Oct. 22. I heard it's better to turn in your appilcation early.

You're better off with a third, good score than a 141.

Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone did well for their June LSAT. Can anyone tell me if I will be able to get in anywhere with a 141 on my LSAT. 

Sign up for September and a prep course.

Eat, sleep, study until then.

Rickster is the authority on who is a splitter and who is not.

Somebody in another thread awhile ago posted a little formula... I thought that was pretty good.

Anyway, I think that if you are above the 75th LSAT and below the 25th GPA for your targets, reaches, and most or all of your safeties, you're a splitter.

Damn right, I am!

No, seriously.  See my editted entry above...I'm not trying to be an ass, I promise.

Here's the deal: I don't consider myself in the same league as someone like Moni/Mini, numbers-wise.  To call us both splitters is inconsistent, I feel.  Maybe she's a Splitter and I'm a Deep Splitter.  I don't know.

Like jolie said, we can keep arguing, but in the end it doesn't matter.  25th-75th makes a sense, but you still get too relative to be consistent.

I'm somewhat of a splitter (3.39/175).  My cycle is officially done (details in sig and lsn).  Michigan definitely seems to be one of the more splitter friendly law schools.
With very similar numbers to Moni/Mini, I'm going to Michigan, too!  177/3.41

You're not splitters.  It's not relative.  It's a low GPA with a high LSAT.

Low GPA is relative.

No, it's not.  Just because you think you should have a higher GPA doesn't make yours low.

EDIT: The only reason I bring it up is that people are starting to make their way to the boards for next year's cycle.  When we speak of "Splitter-friendly" schools, someone with my numbers would be completely remiss to apply to some of the schools that people like Moni and Johnny have gotten into.  They may apply, but to have any realistic idea that they'll get in is silly.  If we're using a label, it should be consistent and generally accurate.

What's the cutoff for a low GPA?

Certainly not 3.4.

I could come up with an arbitrary number, for sure, but I think the most liberal of standards doesn't go too much past 3.25.

But I'm just saying, a 176 and 3.4 doesn't make one a splitter...just like a 154 and 1.7 doesn't either.
