You have to factor in the full formula

VIABLE token + Uncle Tom = Canidate

That was the problem that McCain didn't see in Palin. He didn't do the math.

I completely agree with i VIII π on his point regarding asking your husband. This decision should be first of all mutually agreeable and you BOTH should understand what to expect. Stay local as for me is the easiest way, but I believe it is always better to strive for more. However, if you take a risk do not forget about accepting responsibility. I would recommend you to compare carefully advantages of two schools you have chosen (local and a higher ranked one) and also do not forget about the importance of admission papers: May success wait upon you whatever you choose!

 No need to wait til the primaries to discuss this further because with the clinton/trump drama there are interesting and fun things every week if not every couple of days.

I understand your token/sheep theory but Obama, while being the "token" in the last two presidential election IS a kickass speech giver---charismatic and engaging.  His speeches and a good swing state map plan got him elected.  If tokens/sheep were the answer Jesse Jackson should have been elected years ago when he ran, right?

Let me ask you this... If the republicans nominate Fiorina and Biden becomes the nominee because clinton was forced out and or Sanders is the nominee do you think that the token female would be automatically elected?

What if Marco Rubio is the nominee against Biden?  Will his "token" Spanish presence be the deciding factor over Biden or Sanders?  How would your token theory work with those setups, 8?

Ps if clinton is under investigation for destroying top secret, classified info she will have to legally deal with it and she will be disgraced like petraeus and Nixon....she doesn't need to deal drugs to Cosby....that was funny, man.

For October test takers, it is a good idea to have all elements of your applications complete and uploaded (all essays, letters, etc) so that when you receive your LSAT score, you can simply click "submit."

The best months to apply during rolling admissions are typically Sept-Oct, because rolling = first come, first served. It usually takes adcomms a couple weeks after you apply to review your application materials. Early-mid November is also all right. Once you hit Thanksgiving, you're up against Thanksgiving and Winter vacations, so admissions review typically slows, and then picks up again in January.

If you took the October LSAT and did not receive a sufficient score to achieve admission at your preferred schools, you may be better off waiting a cycle. The prior advice about receiving waivers for application fees is excellent, but might only benefit you if you meet or exceed the 50% LSAT/GPA split for your target schools. Throwing a Hail Mary application with a low LSAT runs the risk of you not achieving admission at your preferred school, and then that school remembering that they rejected you once already if/when you apply the next cycle. Always aim for best foot forward, and don't be afraid to wait a cycle if need be. - DB

I hear what you are saying groundhog, I'm just the type who does things BECAUSE they are hard. I dunno, my brain is wired backwords.  I suspect that OP may be a former grunt too (if there is such a thing)

My technique to learn new things that are hard for me is to RESIST THE TRAP that failing quickly is better than passing slowly. Remember, what you can do well with all the time in the world, you can later learn to do at an increasing pace. Walk before you jog, jog before you sprint. I see far too many people try to practice under timed test like conditions STOP DOING THAT (your instructor is using a cookie cutter, you need to break free from that mental trap)
Practice in a non timed relaxed, everything is perfect conditions. Heck, do it naked while drunk if it helps, but then once you ace it that way. Test it with pants on. Then maybe sober. Continue until test like conditions.

You may be to retake. I'd recommend not falling for the 2nd most common trap of stopping studies until results come out. Don't do that. KEEP studying NO MATTER WHAT. That way you are ready to go to retake at 2X power. Plus there is less stress this time around that way. Heck, treat this test as a PREP one (the most real life conditions possible afterall isn't it?) There is no shame in dry running it. Law school takes the HIGHEST score afterall.

Real life experience given. Pass it on to your classmates in prep if they are willing to listen.

"but some one on the internet told me to stop.............."


The sad reality is that anonymous people on the Internet are going to be the only ones without a financial incentive to advise OP. If a law school candidate asks anyone involved in the law school industry the answer to, "Should I go to law school?" the answer is always yes, and here's how to pay.

It sounds like you have identified your areas of weakness. I don't know your abilities, but if you are determined then that's the other half of the battle.

I mean - if you just started studying, I wouldn't freak out too much. Give it your all and see what comes - that is literally all that you can do.

If towards the end, you see no improvement, you need to be real with yourself. As other posters have said, if you are having problems grasping basic LSAT fundamentals, you are facing more issues that a low LSAT score. Law school is not THAT intellectually difficult, but it does push you in specific ways. For all the problems that the LSAT has, it is actually good at measuring basic things that, without, you are unlikely to succeed. And I don't just mean in law school, I mean as a lawyer. If you are having issues connecting logical dots in logic games, just wait until you are given 100+ pages of bare-fact depositions and and a seemingly endless legal vacuum that is West Law.

But again, I would stick with it. It may just be a bad start or a high plateau that you need to reach.

Good luck!
