168.  My highest practice test was 170, so I was quite pleased!

Y'all are impressive! Even the folks who didn't think they did so well.

"Excuse me, yes, comin' through, oh, pardon me, I didn't mean to, uh, oh yeah, I'll pay for that."

(sound of glass breaking as Wombat drags a 148 through the room)

 ;D


I was practicing at around 155ish. Guess I choked. I was shooting for 160 with a bottom of 155.

I am going to see what kind of responses I get before I make any decisions. I still believe that I will be accepted into my reaches. If not, I have a plan. And if that fails I will probably retest this summer.

Considering that I decided to apply to law school on 11/15/04, and signed up for the Dec 4th LSAT on 11/19, and did a total of 5 practice tests, I am incredibly pleased with my 162! Funny thing - it's the same exact score I got 1998 (but better percentile.)

I'm only halfway through submitting my apps.  Tailoring the PS to each school is so time-consuming!

How are the rest of you doing?

My one lonely app (UConn) was complete last week. I blame LSAC for losing one of my transcripts and then one of my LORs, so both had to be resent.

Now it's just wait and see.

Highway-

Just one school?  I'm applying to 11-14, sent in 6 so far.  I'm about to give up!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Good luck!

I am keeping my day job and going PT evenings. There are only two choices that are within a reasonable commute, but one is a tier 1 and the other a tier 4. I know it wouldn't matter as much in my case (with my WE and background) as to which school I went to, but I decided that if I was going to work FT and put myself through all of this (I also have a family with two small kids), I was going to do it right. Tier 1, or nothing at all (also, the tier 4 is about an hour commute each way, which is stretching it).

I'm just interested in going to law school for my own personal satisfaction anyway. I don't have a desperate need to be a lawyer. By the time I would graduate, I'll probably be making more money at my current job than I could as a practicing lawyer, so I may not even jump head on into a legal career. Having a good legal background would help me in my current position, though, so it would not be wasted. Besides, I'm really a professional student at heart. I love going to school and learning challenging things. If I didn't have to ever work again (ie: won the lottery), I'd just go to school forever.

So, yes, only one application. If I get in, good. If I don't...well, at least I won't die knowing that I never gave it a shot. Also, my numbers are fairly decent, and I've gotten a ton of offers to other schools (even a T2) with scholarship money, so at the very least, I'm happy with the knowledge that I could get into a law school.
