Does anyone know of law schools that don't average lsat scores. i.e. will take the best score. I took the LSAT twice 2 years ago and got a 158 and 164. Both times I had problems; One time I misbubbled my answer sheet, and 1 time I got sick. There were a number of reasons that I didn't cancel my score: I didn't realize that all law schools average scores, I wasn't aware that I misbubbled, and I wasn't really interested in law school at the time.
Anyway I took the LSAT again this past June and got a 171. This is a huge difference and I was wondering if there were any good schools out there that would be sympathetic to my situation.
If you have had for real these three scores, you're really unfortunate to be averaged to a 164. That's why I always stress that people should take LSAT only after they've practiced long enough, even if that would mean 2, 3 or even more years! I mean, it pays off in the long rum even if you'd spend years and years practicing with a stupid test like LSAT -- difference between a $125,000 salary fresh out of law school and a lousy $40,000 suck-ass public defender type of thing!
