Studying for the LSAT / So what went wrong
« on: June 27, 2005, 11:44:19 AM »
With all this discussion about retakes and the scale, I need to ask if anyone can tell me what went wrong in my case...

Long story short-
Been out of school since 1997..decided in November to take the Feb. LSAT, so I took a prep course (Kaplan), scored a 145 on my diag., juggled studying and work, and finally, in Feb I scored a 146. I personally thought the test was very difficult, so I was pretty grateful for that...

I decided to retest, believing I could do better. Retook Kaplan (admittedly, mistake #1), but felt I had a better teacher. I also lost my job, so I was able to dedicate a month to studying and taking prep tests. I believe I took 10 tests. My highest was a 153, lowest was a 146.. I thought the June LSAT was "easier", as most feel on this board, and was expecting a mid-150's score (I am just shooting for a local t4 school, then plan on tranferring up)...

Well, I scored a 143 on the real thing.. Needless to say I was shocked/stunned/flabbergasted...

I refuse to give up... I am going to apply for the spring semester with my 146 as a part time student (i have been working for nearly a decade, so I hope that will help), but my ego was bruised...

Dare I ask-- should I retake in october?? I think I could get in part time in the spring, but want to have a back up plan in case....

thanks dave.. and your score is great- congrats!!

I try to stay positive because I know there may be a law school for me, even with my score, and i hope to rock my first year grades and transfer up.. I don't believe anyone's case is futile if they really want something bad enough...And I give respect to anyone who has taken the LSAT because as we all know, it's tough, and it takes alot of drive to be willing to sit through a 3 1/2 test that tests thought process, not subject matter. IMO it's the hardest standardized test out there (sorry MCAT!)

Lucky for me, JMLS is located right in chicago, so I won't have to leave home! :)

Hey, to all the LSD regulars and LSAT class of June--
Hope you all did well (and as I read some of your posts I see some of you did :)!! This scale was killer, as I fell victim to it (still cleaning up the blood!!) but be proud, no matter what you scored, as merely taking the LSAT is an acheivement.. I will still be around but I wanted to make sure I wished you all the best in your ls journeys....

i doubt it, I am giving up and going home...Good luck to all!

So in other words, ALOT of people did very well on the June test?


Maybe this time it will be better for me...

Youre right..My lousy 30th percentile from Feb is now 29th..great.
