jd.me?:
I took the feb exam and bomb it. I guessed on about 6-5 questions towards the end of each section. So I guessed a total of 21-22 questions with the letter of the day "D". I think my score is from a 155-158. Does anyone have some advice as to what schools I should apply to. Also what are my chances at CWRU,Pitt, Depaul OSU, AU and GW?
Thanks.

why didn't you cancel?

jd.me?:
I took two years off and have to start in 05. I took the exam in Dec, canceled remembered my answers and did a self score. It turns out that dec's exam was a 165. I finish games and got everything correct, answered 23/26 on Arg1 21/25 on Arg2 and did 2 rc passages. I canceled the dec exam b/c I thought it was much worse but it wasn't that bad.
Feb was bad and I know that I won't get into many of the schools that I applied to. Pressure from family and 2 years off from starting law school pushed me to make this stupid choice.

If you think you can do significantly better, take it again, put your families' wishes to the side and do what you know in your heart is best for you, this is your life, not theirs.

If you want to apply with the stats you have now I would say apply to T3 and lower T2 schools in the area you plan on practicing. @#!* it, apply where you wanna go, let the chips fall where they may.
