My numbers, as you can see, are a 3.79 g.p.a and a 168 LSAT score. However, that score was on a Kaplan practice test.
I have been planning on getting a doctorate in philosophy, and hadn't given law school any thought. However, my wife (who is going to law school) had to take a practice test on her birthday. I didn't want her to take it alone, and was curious to find out what all the buzz was about, so I went and took the test. I didn't study at all, and didn't even know what was on the test. I didn't know you could write in the book on the logic games either. I got a 168, despite only getting 54% of the logic games questions right. This is due, obviously, to by lack of knowledge of how to take the test in large part. Because I didn't know I could write in the book, I tried to juggle all of the information in my head. I got the first ten right, but it took me 20+ minutes. So, I quickly ran out of time, and missed almost all of the second half of the questions. The next week I did a section of logic games and only missed 6, so I am improving.
So, given that information, do you seasoned test-takers think that, with a little study time, I can get my score up high enough to get into a t14 school despite my having only gone to the University of Tennessee?
