Rutgers Newark/Seton Hall
« on: October 27, 2004, 10:24:42 AM »
Hey guys,

Does anyone know of anyone that was accepted to these two schools or if your applying to these schools?  I totally bombed the lsat with a 140 and i'm retaking it in December.  Do you still think I have a chance to get in with a 3.3 and two lsat scores?

Thanks

I am applying to both, but I have to be honest and say that with an LSAT score at that level, I don't think you are a candidate at either.  I have a 156 and 3.7 and think that my shot is 50/50 at both.  If I were you, I would consider retaking the test. Good Luck.

I graduated from Rutgers University (undergrad), I was an intern at the public defender's office, I'm half Spanish and was on the dean's list multiple times. Would they consider that?

They will look at those things and take them into consideration, but your low LSAT score will overshadow those things. I suggest working hard and getting your score up considerably, then if you are still on the low end of the Rutgers LSAT statistics, I would apply to the part time program since their statistics are lower.

Good luck.

Im gonna study my ass off.  I was really nervous when I took the exam and I think I can do a lot better.  It was a bad test day.  I signed up for the powerscore weekend course and taking practice lsats.

Do you guys know if these two schools average the lsats or do they take the higher score if it is higher than 10 points?

I have taken the LSAT three times and I know for a fact that they take the average because I am applying to the part time program at both Seton Hall and Rutgers Newark.

You could write an addendum if you improve drastically. May I ask what your practice scores were before the October exam? You have to be really careful that your scores goes up. If you score a 142, it is going to solidify that percentile for you, and that would not work in your favor. Do you really think you can go up 10 points from now until December. Maybe you should really study for it and take it in February or June and apply next year.

My scores have ranged from the 150-160s.  I know that 140 does not reflect me.  I was extremely nervous that day and totally blacked out on my sections.  I know I can score at least 10-15 points higher, I just need to calm my nerves.
