Law School Admissions / Re: Is a 155 a horrible LSAT Score?

Doesn't that put you slightly over the median of law students?

So you're asking if it's horrible that you scored slightly above average?

It's certainly not horrible, just quite mediocre.

I took the exam 3x so I cannot take it again. I guess I went from 2 horrible scores (in the 140s) to a mediocre score (155).

Oh well. I didn't read where you had taken it three times, that puts you in a bad position.

Maybe wait until you can take it again and actually study some for the exam?

My poor performance has less to do with studying and more to do with the fact that I am just not a good standardized test taker. I know it sounds like an excuse but I just get really nervous. I had a tutor, took princeton review and powerscore. I studied for over 1 year and spent over $3500 on classes, tutors and study aids. It sucks but I hope to atleast get into a tier 2. If I do I will definitely do my thing.


You know that law school exams are worse than the LSAT, right? Many of them have multiple choice questions and you have to take at least four per semester. At least with the LSAT you can guess and have a 20% chance (or better) of getting the right answer.

If you really put in that much work and time to only get a 155 and are looking at at Tier 2 school, think long and hard about your choice to attend law school. There's a very real chance that you'll end up at the median, which at a Tier 2 means it's almost impossible to get a job that will pay off your loans.
