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.
I "dunno" if you are "plain stupid", but what horrible advice/comments to give.. Get over yourself... Who are you to say anything? You're just a random poster who feels the need to take down someone's dream.. The OP is someone who is trying and is asking for help, and you are being rude...
I think a good lawyer is not borne from a great LSAT score, but the drive and determination it takes to get through law school......And the OP sounds like he has it..
