I am a newbie to this site and I need some advice. I am looking to score in the 170's on my LSAT exam. I scored a 129 on my diagnostic lsat exam and I need some advice on how to raise my score. Currently, I am taking a prep course. However, I would like to know if you can give me any advice on supplemental reads.
Thanks very much,
Wow, I don't want to come off as one of those who says you can't do it, but I mean, 129 to 170 is pretty tough. It would be more reasonable to expect perhaps mid 140's? I don't want to say don't try, but to expect a 170 is just setting yourself up for failure.
Take some classes at Kaplan or something like that. I liked the way Kaplan worked for me. But even the best systems only state toping out at a 10 point increase. Honestly I would think long and hard if law school is right for you. I hate to be that "elitist" because I do feel that every law school is at least decent. But I mean, 129 is low.
What was your undergrad GPA, that would say a lot to what score you would need.
Just realize that even LSAT classes are very expensive, and may not be the best investment for you.
I am sorry if its not what you wanted to hear, or if it came off harsh, not intended. Just good luck if you decide to pursue it, and hopefully you are happy where you end up.
