Asking what your "target" score should be for the LSAT is kind of irrelevant, because all you can do is the best you can do.

Irrelevant?  OK.  But it's still fun to be thinking about all of this stuff.

Thanks for your comment.

Exactly what I was thinking.  What's the point of formulating a goal LSAT, and before you've even taken a practice?  I wouldn't advise anyone to start setting their sights on any specific school until they've at least taken a practice test. 

Everyone's "target" score is the highest that they can realistically do.  Even if you have a target school that isn't highly ranked, the higher the LSAT the better chance of free $$$. 

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer.  I guess it's fun to fantasize.
