Take in Oct after spending more than a week preparing for it Also, do you actually plan on doing anything with a degree from a school that only needs you to score in the 10th percentile? Is it even ABA approved? Law School is a lot of time and, usually, money.
Hello everyone,Newbie here...I have never been a great test taker, add to that I have a undiagnosedlearning disability. I have done fairly well in College, I got A's on theclasses I liked, (including Business Law) but not so well in other classesI didn't care about. Well that's besides the point, I am just trying to showthat I am not stupid.However, this LSAT is killing me. I'm scheduled to take it on MondayJune 14th. (I am not seeking extra time, that won't help much)The problem is I started studying for the LSAT about a week ago.Somebody gave me some pretty good advice and said take the testand take as long as you need and try to get all the answers correct.Well I spent about an hour and a half on each section, and thebest I could do under these liberal conditions was the 50th percentile.BTW, I used Kaplan's Book as a guide to answering questions.I took more and more tests, eventually getting my time down to35 minutes per section. It's now Sunday morning, the daybefore the dreaded real test, and the best I can do so far isthe 28th percentile. All I need is the 10th percentile to get into the law school I want.I do not think under actual test conditions, I will even be able todo that.My question is....How well, How accurately does the LSAT represent how well I will do in law school? I think it's completelybogus. The logic games are a joke, and I've had severallawyers tell me that fast reading comprehension is the lastthing you want to do as a lawyer. These lawyers howeverscored very high on the LSATS and went to very good schools.These lawyers state that time should not be a factor when researchinga case. Deliberate, accurate results is what they are lookingfrom paralegals and law partners.Since my score is so bad, should I just give up on this dream I'vehad since I was 16? (btw, I am 40 now)I just don't see any correlation of the LSAT to how good of an attorneyI'll be. However, if I am only scoring in the 28th percentile on the LSAT'sdoes that mean I will most likely never pass the bar exam?I would appreciate any feedback. As of now, it doesn't lookas if I am going to take the grueling LSAT If there is doubtI can even score in the 10th percentile. Again, I'd appreciate any advice...and good luck toall Monday test takers!Mike
