good point.... it would be better to ace the feb or june lsat and really show that 140 was an anamoly, rather than get a 142 and show that a 140 is truly reflective. i would say that if you do not significantly improve your practice test scores (under real, timed, conditions) then it might be better to hold off til next year.

i took a class and was scoring in the mid 150-s, until during the 2nd month of studying that it all started to click.  especially with the games.  my first practice test i only answered about 6 of the games section, while during the actual test i got 3 wrong for the games section.  it all kinda just started to click....i am sure that will happen with you too if you give it time.

i also am applying to the rutgers and seton hall night program by the way, hehe.

I was also considering going to grad school for two or three years and then applying to law school, that way by 2 or 3 years, my record will be clean again.

<<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?>>


My partner goes to Rutgers-Newark...
Avoid Seton Hall unless you wanna be around a bunch of conservatives...

At any rate...your LSAT is pretty low, but I think if you have a good PS, recommendations, GPA and you can bring it up to the 150's..then you may have a shot at Rutgers. They allow you to choose your application to be judged on things other than your lsat and gpa as a priority.

Yeah I keep hearing that Seton Hall is more conservative.  My first choice would be Rutgers.  I'm hoping to get my lsats up to the 150s in december and choose the option on the application where they place primary emphasis on your background and accomplishments.

"Avoid Seton Hall unless you wanna be around a bunch of conservatives..."

I don't want to be around a bunch of conservatives, but on the other hand, I don't want to be around a bunch of liberals either. Just how LIBERAL is Rutgers?

Out of the two schools, who has a better BALANCE of both conservatives and liberals?
