You're an inspiration, blonde. I support your cause 100%. Study hard! You can certainly do better. And don't hesitate to ask questions - whenever you have them.
With a 3.3 and a 155+ on your next test, you can probably get into an ABA approved law school. I am sure you will be fine. Seriously consider going to a school that is not ABA approved. It's not as if you can't find work in that state. If I remember correctly, California has like 17 of them. Best of luck!
I apologize in advance, I'm not trying to pick on just one person here. However, these types of sentiments seem to be coming up a lot on this board. There is NOTHING wrong with a 3.3 and a 155. These are decent numbers that will get you into plenty of (ABA approved!) law schools. The OP with a 142 may have to do some out of state searching, but if it's REALLY a dream there's no reason you can't make it happen.
This board is not representative of applicants, a lot of the people here have scored exceptionally well. Please do not get discouraged and think you can no longer go to law school because you don't have a 3.8 with a 170. Please do not think that you can't practice law unless you go to a T25 school!!! I have many friends that went to T3 and T4 schools and they have great jobs and great lives.
Thanks for all the feedback. My gpa is 3.3 amd I went to Rutgers. I do have anxiety problems with standardize exams but I know I'm not stupid. You can say someone is stupid just because they scored low on a silly test. I got into grad school, so I cant be dumb. I did well on the GRE. I think I put too much pressue on myself with this test. I took a powerscore full prep course and was scoring in the 150s on the practice exams. I know I can improve, I think it was bad timing and anxiety.
I think anyone with an average level of intelligence can score at least in the high 150s if he/she has studied properly. Maybe ADDs are an exception.
Hey guys, I have a problem. I took the October 2004 lsat and got a 140. I attempted to take the December 2004 lsat and ended up canceling. Then I took a powerscore course and took the June 2005 Lsat and only got a 142. I don't know what else to do. I want to take the test again, but my limit is up. Unless I get permission from a dean of a law school to take the test again, I'll have to wait till october 2006 to take it again. Should I give up my dream of going to law school because of this test or should I wait it out and retake it again in the future? I am currently a grad student, so I have that going for me.
I hate it when other people tell me this but I would recommending you of being satisfied with your score. Your consecutive scoring of 140 and 142 are an indicator that you did not improve at all. I dunno if you are plain stupid or just lack motivation, but 140 and 142 sound like low scores.
If you have grad school, then why you thinking about lawschool??? Finish your stuff first. But, you should give up because you seem like one of those people that do not improve. You have nothing to say. If you have gotten at least 150 on the second test then I would advise you to take it again. However 142 after 140 sounds pathetic.
