I had a 146 on my LSAT. However, I have a great work ethic and my UG grades totaled a whopping 3.8 GPA. I got into a T4 law school and am now, at the end of my 1L, at the top of my class, #9/560. Furthermore, I made law review and moot court. I'm trying to transfer to some higher schools now.
I bought all the prep books possible for the lsat. I just never figured out the logic games. i also didn't think a lot about the writing sample. i was always a good writer so i didn't prepare much for that. i think those 2 parts of the test killed my score. but then again, i was never a good standardized test score taker. i'm lucky to have done so well though. a lot of people encouraged me to retake the test but i knew my score wouldn't improve much AND i didn't want to waste 1 year instead of plunging into LS.
Interesting....Congrats to both of you - that's impressive. Do those of you with high LSAT scores (for your law schools) find any correlation to your level of success in law school? Or once you get in, does the LSAT prove not to be much of a predictor?
You had a 178 and went to a Tier 3 school? Was this a financial consideration? It seems like you would be WELL above their LSAT range...
