What GPA range would one need to be in to obtain a job as a prosecutor/assistant prosecutor (county level) in a small to mid-size city?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: postmortems on the day of the test

Isn't it true that they're ahead of us, in terms of time zones.  So they probably took the test before us, not after. 
that's what i'm thinking.

You're absolutely right. They're ahead of us.

Um ... what a bitchy poll.  I predict that I scored in the upper 150's and you can still get into some tier 1 and most tier 2 with that.  And you can be very successful even going to a tier 3 or 4 school.

What is with the elitism on this board?

Everyone that plays the card that they are 'elites' are only doing so because they're in the same 150-165 boat as everyone else. I'm hoping for high 150's to mid 160's. Hooray for TTT.

Rofl no. Some of these guys are elites.

Yes. But. Some of them simply want you to think that they are...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: NEWS about Sept 30 LSAT

Ok, just wanted to update you guys with some info about the scale - mostly all of the scantrons have been run through and it appears that we are looking at a (- 11), however NO questions are being dropped.  The wording on one of the last LR questions was considered "ambiguous" but this did not impede answering the question properly. 

What does it mean to have a "-11" scale?

Well... I hope I am the latter.

I've heard that if it's to the point and doesn't beat around the bush then it's fine. If the admissions officer reads a letter that is two pages of *&^% thats made up they're going to know anyways.

I would feel really bummed/disappointed (like that sinking stomach feeling) for a bit.  I would probably tell people that I "didn't do as well as I thought and I am retaking in December" ... but I probably wouldn't tell my score to most ppl (many of my friends/family don't even know the scale or anything about it).  The thought of retaking it ... going through that ... studying more ... it makes me depressed and a little sick to my stomach.  :'(

I guess I would call up Princeton Review and tell them I bombed and they owe me more classes ... at least that would keep me somewhat motivated, but I would be embarrassed, b/c I think the same lady is teaching it this fall that taught my class.  I enjoyed the class and feel it helped a lot, but I feel so "eh" about the test.  UGH.  WHY COULDN'T I HAVE SLEPT MORE AND DONE BETTER ON THE GAMES!  The games had become my strongest section, but I think I only got like 60% correct on this test :(  damn damn damn.

If I get over 155 I will be satisfied and not retake.  Below 155 ... serious thinking ... Below 150, heaven forbid, I would definitely retake.

I hear ya... I'm hoping for the 155 also. I'm thinking I'll be fine; I was getting 160-164 or prep tests.

How representative are practice LSAT scores to one's actual LSAT score?
