LSAT Readiness --- I am making progress
« on: May 03, 2009, 09:04:05 PM »
I have been intensively studying for my LSAT with Powerscore bibles. I jumped from a 137 to a 142 to a 147. I am signed up to take the June 2009 LSAT. Which means I have roughly a month to get to my goal LSAT score which is like 157. Do any of you all see my goal as realistic?

And...

I "goggled" the LSAT score of 155. People on many forums spoke about that score like it was HORRIBLE. Why is a 155 thought of as being a BAD score?  I mean I am hopping to get in William and Mary with a 157 or higher and a pretty high gpa. I have a 147 as of now...how is that supposed to make me feel?

It looks like you will have a good shot of getting waitlisted at W&M with a 157, but not necessarily getting in http://wm.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/?whichCycle=0809

Did u really just ask that?  How you feel?  This is law school admissions, not the cushy self-esteem building feel-good-even-though-you-suck public school you grew up in.  If you don't got the numbers, nobody cares how you feel.

Why aim for 157? With a higher score you have both the increased chance of getting a scholarship as well as gaining admission into a better school.

 I suggest you take a couple more prep tests before the date change deadline. If at that point your scores are still climbing, move it to the Sept. date and focus on getting in the high 150's range and up.

Congrats on your progress. What's your study regimen like? Getting over the 150 hump is an ongoing process for me, so I'm always interested to see how others make it over.

Sending all of my daily dose of my encouragement your way. Stay positive!

I think I can beat it. I think I can beat it. I think I can beat it.

Someone posted lawschoolnumbers.com and after I looked at some of the GOD AWFUL scores and GPA's that schools accept, I feel alot better about my chances. I will be taking my first practice exam tomorrow, and will let you know how I score. I am taking the Sep 2009 LSAT.

Don't worry, lucytwim, there are scumbags who post "XYZ be hardest test ever" on this board just to psych people out.

The LSAT is a standardized test, so it cannot be "harder" from one administration to the next. 

Don't pay any attention to the many a$$holes who come here to play head games.  Many of them have severe inferiority complexes, come here obsessively and have post counts in the thousands or tens of thousands, and sincerely enjoy making other people squirm.  They're really sick people.

Fortunately, many of them flunk out of law school or  just become Admissions Officers at law schools when they're done with their J.D. (so we normal people don't have to cross paths with them in real life), but until they crash and burn or move on to inflicting torture on fresh applicants, we still have to cross paths with 'em here.

So keep your head down, lucytwim, stay strong, and don't let the psychos here distract you too much.
