Trying to get into law school...
« on: July 21, 2006, 10:59:07 AM »
So I am a Civil Engineering student at arguably one of the most respected engineering schools in the nation, trying to find a way to get into a decent law school. I have an average gpa (3.45 or so, which isn't bad for being an engineer), but I am quite skeptical on what I will attain on my LSAT. I am going to guess around a 150, and that might be high with how I felt after taking a practice LSAT last night. Being an engineer (my excuss) I tend to lack the verbal strength of most others also applying to law school. Is there any hope for me to be accepted into a top 100 school? What can I do to help my chances? Thanks for all the advice!

I would suggest not taking the LSAT until you are confident you will score above a 150.  Generally your scores do not erase once you take them and you'll use the mean of all your tests in applying for schools.  Schools are very hesistant about accepting a student who scores sub 150.  A few points will make a huge difference.
