Non-Traditional Indeed
« on: June 18, 2010, 06:17:59 AM »
 Hello everyone,

 I am from Turkey and working at Turkish Court of Accounts. (Equivalent of Government Accountability Office of USA, well at least in theory) I have a 115 / 120 TOEFL IBT score, 3.55 / 4.00 GPA and in the 10 practice exams I took (LSAT obviously) my scores fluctuated between 172 and 178. So my question is, as a 29 year old Turkish guy with these scores, what are my chances of actually getting admitted to a really good LS and going Biglaw after that? Is it even worth trying?

 Thanks in advance.

 Hmm, guess people must have thought I am trolling or something. Well I am not, above scenario is 100% accurate and I just want opinions, positive or negative. :P

It's worth taking the LSAT.  Beyond that, can't say.
