Have you considered the puerto rican law schools?

Thanks for the comments, Yea I know I was crazy to shoot for some of those schools. But I seriously was didn't have a clue how much my low LSAT would distroy my 3.65 GPA. Also yea i'm working with kaplan, I got a tutor and am already scheduled for the October LSAT. I will be applying to Cooly among other schools. I mean I can still hope to transfer, right? I really like the idea of asking for Part time also, I will definately do that. I think that I heard that I can add an extra request asking that they consider me for Part time as well if I don't get into fulltime. Can I do that?? Also does anyone know of a list of schools that doesn't average the LSAT? Thanks everyone

i'm not positive, but does Drexel have any sort of law school?
i thought i heard something about that... but maybe it isn't ABA approved yet?
might be something to look into.....?

Drexel has a school starting next year...its their inaugural year - its not ABA approved, but it will be in a year or two (at most)

By the way guys this thread refers to last cycle....


But hey, sometimes life just isn't fair.

You have only yourself to blame...

Thats a pretty rude thing to say to someone you don't even know...maybe the OP had familial problems that caused stress/hardship/lack of time to study, or maybe just maybe not everyone is as good at standardized tests as you (presumably) are

don't worry latin lord. your time will come. i was once in your position. my practice tests were in the late 130's range and was always very frustrated and depressed. i took a powerscore class, and invested in extra tutoring time to help me with the games sections. took the test in october and got a 154. i know that compared to many people on this board, my score is not all that, but it was good enough for me.
if you can, hire a tutor because i felt that is really what helped me. i also took about a year to prepare/study read the bibles cover to cover.

No wonder you did poorly on the LSAT.  What makes you think that you can draw a reasonable conclusion about the correlation between LSAT scores and law school success based on one person's experience?

Feeling sad because you're afraid your 171 won't guarantee you a spot on law review?

A 171 statistically means NOTHING at a top school vis-a-vis a single person's performance.

With a 160 or a 179, you might be able to draw some conclusions with a more reasonable margin of error (more so on the lower end).

I know, it just seems like latinlord touched on a nerve with his statement.
