and, here, i nitpick.first off, i don't have numbers. right now i have a number: a gpa. i will not have "numbers" until october. until then, do not piss on what does not exist.the primary reason i am asking the members of this board is that i asked a professional admissions counselor a similar question, and she told me that i should not aim any higher than my never-saw-an-lsat-wtf-is-on-it diagnostic score (which *barely* places me in the 90th percentile) because any larger split would be too "analogous." as that is a frightening view of how whites view blacks, i chose to get some other opinions.
she literally told me not to prep for the lsat.she said that my score would get me into plenty of tier 1s and possibly some t14s, and to cancel my prep class. now, this entire concept initially left me just as confused as u r. i mean, it's common knowledge that law schools stress lsat scores like nobody's business, and the common advice is to get the highest score you can. then, i realized that she was telling me that my diagnostic score was "good enough" and that anything too far from it would be too out of line with expectations for a black person.
