I appreciate your reply.I don't know if "extremely low" is the characterization I'd chose to describe that score, but to each his own. 79th percentile, while not superb, is simply not extremely low. Certainly not what I was aiming for considering I averaged a 165 on over 20 previous LSATs that I took. At this point I've ruled out taking the LSAT a third time and the schools I listed above are reach schools. From reading your other posts, I think what you're saying about people not getting above a 160 "barring serious anxiety issues" is a bit misguided for someone who hasn't sat for the test yet. At any rate, I hope you do well and wish you the best of luck on test day.I went to University of Mississippi for undergrad and will apply there as well as other safety schools. I've lived in South Carolina for a little over a year now, have good contacts in the legal field and other professional areas. What I'm concerned about is how tight the legal market in the state is (but I guess you could say that about plenty of states right now) and the fact that I may be stuck there long term if I don't get offers from out of state firms. I do have a definite interest in tax law and USC has a dual degree JD/MaCC, which is appealing.
