Studying for the LSAT / So what went wrong
« on: June 27, 2005, 02:44:19 PM »
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

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....

Cheers--

Don't say you're a moron....especially because there are a few of us who may have done as well as you (or worse) and i certainly think i am not a moron despite my score..
