First of all, if you want to be a lawyer, don't go to a law school in Puerto Rico.Second, you can definitely hope for a significant increase. In June of 2005 I got a 145; In October, three months later, I got a 154. I just took the test again in September and got a 156. I like using the logic bibles (there are several.) I focused on weak types of questions, and focused on each type of section at a time. Learn what you suck at. Then get good at it.It's definitely possible.
This is a very respectable increase. I'm curious though - did you prep the first time?

I did a handful of practice tests but really had no I idea what I was getting myself into. It was straight out of "Legally Blonde": "Do you think one day she woke up one morning and said 'I think I'll go to law school?'" ... Then I got serious about it.
Thanks Thales. I'm applying regionally - I live in Seattle and can't imagine living or working elsewhere. I'll be applying to Seattle U, Gonzaga, Willamette, and though they are a bit more of a reach (I'm just at their 25%), Oregon and Lewis and Clark for the hell of it. I'd love to stay here and go to Seattle U.
