Studying for the LSAT / Re: Bombed... is there hope?
« on: October 23, 2006, 06:46:18 AM »
Well I got a 144 on my LSAT. My lowest non-cheating timed LSAT during practice was 158. I have a problem when I take standarized testing. I just can't do it when it counts. I am retaking in December. However, if I do not do much better is there any hope for me?

My GPA is 3.63 and I have a lot of community service and work experience. My dream is to go to law school and become a lawyer. I really want to make that happen. I know some of you that have nothing else do with your lives will flame and say mean things, but I am talking to the few who might like to help.

I would like to end up in Seattle after law school. Seattle U was where my target was going to be, but I am not sure I can get in there now. Any suggestions on what to do or where to apply? Thanks.

I think you owe a shot at improving your score to that strong GPA of yours. You can apply to targets now, if you want to benefit from applying early, but I wouldn't apply to the schools you really want, like Seattle, until you find the results of the December test.

If this score was an abberation, you have to try again.

Regardless, you graduate from a law school and subsequently pass the bar, you're a lawyer.

I know they see your whole report yadda yadda, but will the fact that my gpa is extremely high at my university at all outweigh my mediocre beginnings at a CC?

CC gpa- (3.19) began at 2.0, then 3.25 and up until 4.0
Univ CA Irvine- (3.93) 3.96 on LSAC
Cummulative- (3.40)


Any thoughts would be appreciated

That's an incredible testament to your academic capabilities and focus, unless you only took 4 classes at your degree granting university. A GPA like that has to help a lot. If it didn't, what message would that send to the kids?
