Do I have any chance at any NY area school with a 3.4 and a 145... Please help I have applied to St. Johns, Pace, Hofstra, Touro, CUNY, Brooklyn, Cardozo,  and NY Law School.
  Do I have any chance at any of these schools?  I applied ED at Hofstra.

I am suppose to on Sat. but I am sick.  I was sick when I took it the last time, so I am scared.  I will probably retake the test, but I just want to know if I do horrible again do I have a chance anywhere....

What are you scoring on practice tests?  If you can get in the mid 150's, you'd have a much better chance...

That said, I wouldn't count out Hofstra.  It also depends on how set you are at being in the city-there are other schools in NY state:  SUNY, Albany, Syracuse.  You've also got a decent chance at Widener in Pennsylvania, and a lot of Widener students take the NY bar.

Of course you have a chance.  Are you normally a good test taker?  It may be too late but you can always discuss in your PS about any difficulties you had with the test, then focus on your strengths.

I was scoring higher on the practice, but when I am taking the test I am frozen.. I don't know what is wrong with me.  SO you are saying no chance at the schools I applied?  I am set on staying in NYC. I do not want to go out of state or even upstate.  SO no chance at the schools that I applied, huh?

Usually before this whole LSAT thing started I thought I was a good test taker, but I guess not.  I have always wanted to go to law school since I was 5, and I have the work exp.  I have been working in in a law office for the past 3 years.  But  I am starting to lose hope.

I wouldn't say no chance...there's always a chance.  The ABA guide gives you a 20-40% chance at Touro, but you have a less than 25% chance at the other schools.  Are you a URM?  Because that matters too.

i really don't see any chance at cardozo, st johns or brooklyn, i don't know much about Pace, and hofstra and ny law have numbers higher than yours, i would try to take the lsat again if u can, just trying to give u a realistic view, you never know what can happen during the admissions process though, good luck!
3.67 159/164
and.......the admissions process is over! yay!
