can I?

Since I already have my score and things together, I think I might just apply this cycle for fun.

Best strategy would be to take the next year and get a good job (WE counts in admissions) do the grad school at night and take a class and study for the LSAT and do well on it. If you can take care of all that at once.

It really depends on how intense you are about getting to law school, what your goals are etc. For instance, if you can do well  on the LSAT you can still get into a school....the best way to downplay your ugpa would be to get a grad degree, do well and get some years of WE...then the ugpa will count for less. But it will always be there. Either way doing well on the LSAT is the most important thing for you.

What was your ugpa btw? What major, hard school?

I've already taken Testmasters, I got a 154 because I had to pee during section 3 and lost concentration.  I felt good about the games section that day, and that it would make up for it so I didn't cancel.  I ended up nailing the games, but really screwed up section 3.  I signed up to retake this December, but since the test is the weekend before finals, I've been rethinking about it. I usually score at least 5+ points higher.  So now, I want to go to grad school, study my ass off for the lsat, and get that stellar score.

I see.  So is it worth going to grad school?  Or should I just tough it out at a tier 3/4?

You would be better off paying for an LSAT prep course (testmasters or powerscore... NOT KAPLAN OR PR).

does anyone disagree?

Much?  Little?  Not at all?  Will having a masters in a subject (with great gpa) sorta make up for my less than stellar UG GPA?

The reason I ask is because I'm considering on going to grad school, which would buy me some time to study and retake the LSAT and do other cool stuff.  Otherwise, I might just end up at a tier 3/4.  What do you think?

I know I can score higher, I really needed to pee from sections 2-3 in October.

My Oct 04: 154

Thanks

Same here.  I had to pee extremely bad throughout the entire test and I got a 154.  I'll probably retake in December.

Not kidding...

Sounds like a great idea, but I think the warm feeling on my leg would bother me.

You know Baff, we're a lot alike.  Our score progression was pretty much the same, and we're interested in Santa Clara.
