I took the June LSAT and expected to score within the high 150s to low-mid 160s range, the range I had consistently been scoring in for the past 1/2 yr. taking practice tests. However, on the actual exam I scored a 151!!!! I was so depressed ever since I got my score that I contemplated giving up going to law school altogether. My goal is to get into a T2, there's no chance in hell I will get into a T1 with a 151 on my record. I graduated from U.C. Berkeley with an UGPA of 3.2. What type of schools can I get into with my current numbers, and what would I need to score on the October LSAT to be able to achieve my goal of getting into a T2??
I have a pretty good work and extra-curricular activities background, and have some pretty good LOR from my professors from college and from the attorneys at the law firm that I work for now as a corporate paralegal (a top tier firm). I am definitely going to take the LSAT again in Oct. and at this point I am not even nervous anymore, I am just pissed off. I think I stressed myself out too much the day of the exam, the June LSAT was not as difficult as I thought it would be, but still I scored a 151!! I'M PISSED!
I want to go to law school, I know I have what it takes to be a lawyer, all the attorneys that I work with here (mostly ivy-league graduates) encourage me to go to law school and tell me I'd make a great lawyer someday. But all that encouragement means *&^% if I don't have the numbers to get into a good school.
What should I do??? And can anyone give any tips on how I should be studying for the LSAT over the summer? I am planning to start again next week. I took a TM course, did the whole PS Logic Games and Logical Reasoning Bibles, AND did 20 practice tests. Am I just plain STUPID or is the LSAT just the most difficult test ever!?!
Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!!!
