I wanted to get some thoughts from those of you who have been in the thick of things for longer than I have. I'm considering taking the June 8 LSAT and beginning my preparation this week. I realize that there isn't much time, but I will have very few other commitments until then and I'll be able to devote the majority of my time to studying. This way, if I don't like my score I'll also have a chance to retake in September before applying in the fall. I plan to self-study using the Powerscore bibles and real LSATs.
Stats: I took the June 2007 LSAT available on the LSAC web site last week cold and using real timing and and got a 162. I have a 3.66/4.00 undergrad GPA from an Ivy (major: political science) and graduated in 2008. I would like to be able to attend NYU/Columbia (ideally) or other top-tier schools, which I'm assuming means I need around a 170 on the LSAT.
Is this possible in the next seven weeks? Thoughts? Thanks!
