it all depends on where you want to live/work upon graduation (and to a lesser extent, for the rest of your life).

It's not so important for the rest of your life. After a few years they rely on your resume. It's obviously difficult to go cross-country for a job, but it can be done, especially for firms with offices in several states. Someone isn't forced to really work in one area for life because of one score they got on a test :P

But yea Auburn, it really depends on what area you're looking to practice law in. I'd take a look at a few Florida schools (They're relatively close to you and to my knowledge the firms hire from the T2s and T3s quite readily). It all really depends where you want to get your job.
Mr. Verbosity!

Whoa, what a weekend!!

I didn't sleep Wednesday and Thursday night, because I had several lab reports due this week, and I had to get everything done on Friday.  Then, Friday night, I went out to my friend's birthday, and got so drunk that I passed out in the cab, and my (also drunk) boyfriend had to physically carry me into his house and pay our $44 fare. 

I spent all of Saturday recovering.  Then, Saturday night, I was like: "Oh yeah, the LSAT!  I wonder if my score is up yet?"

So I checked it out..

Raw: 85    Score: 166    95th percentile.  LR= -4/-2  RC= -4  LG= -5

I am ecstatic.  In my heart, I believed that I had a 163, and after hearing all the negativity about the bad curve, I was bracing for a 158.

Plus, I was very, very sick that day (if you recall my whining leading up to the test).  Had I been healthy, I probably could have pulled off a few extra points, and maybe ended up with a 169.  But none of that matters.  My numbers are good enough for any school in Canada that I want to go to, except perhaps Toronto... and who the hell wants to live in Toronto, anyway?

Good luck to everyone who insists on putting themselves through this hell once again.  I don't know how you could do it.  To those happy with their scores: Congrats!!
Practice LSATs so far: 156 155 157 155 157 161 162 161 155 155 160 164 166 161 170 166 168 160 163 162 172

LSAT's finished... I don't have to think about law school for a year now.

178!  I didn't think it had gone this well, and I'm really happy.  It feels nice to post this...I haven't told a lot of people.  :)

Hi superiorlobe.  More about myself...I was a philosophy major (3.98ish), and I'm living in San Francisco.  I have yet to start my personal statement -- eek.  I'm hoping to go to a law school back east, then eventually do the "saving the world" kind of law.  :)

Hmmm.  I would probably apply to Harvard as well as Yale if I were you.  You always want to have an ironclad safety.
