Thanks for all the support. I think I will check out a few more schools on the east coast since thats really where I'd like to be. Thanks for all the help though! Hopefully I'll get an acceptance at some point!
this thread, which is full of some low numbers and t3-t4 rejections, is so positive and communalwhy is it that the t14 threads are so negative and trash talking?what do they ultimatly have to worry about? they will all be fine! they dont even know what it feels like to hope to get in SOMEWHERE!those applicants facing that kind of reality must want to puke when people whine about not getting into harvard after yale has already accepted them...
ouchic2005: I definitely think your LSAT is what is killing your apps. How did you prepare? Although it is unusual to take it a third time, if you could raise your score by several points, it would put you in a completely different bracket in the minds of adcoms.

Although it is unusual to take it a third time, if you could raise your score by several points, it would put you in a completely different bracket in the minds of adcoms. I took a powerscore last Apr.-June, was stupid and didn't feel "prepared" to take the June test so waited til Oct. which was a huge mistake. I was scoring 150 on the practice tests in my class and my instructor said I could be scoring at least a 156 if I'd improve a few things (but couldn't everybody ?!?). Either way re-took the Dec. LSAT and did 6 points better which is great but not when your score is STILL in the 140's! I still have hopes of going to law school because I do not test well and I have other outside factors that I really thought would help my apps. It's looking as though its not. I do appreciate the nice things that people have posted on here because I think it is all true. I do not believe that the LSAT entirely predicts how we are all going to do in law school. I think we all have a lot of ambition for even applying and going through this whole process with below average scores and I really think that says something.
