Hi all,Glad to see your banding together to support each other, there are far fewer of us in the lower LSAT range on these boards then there are in the general population of LS applicants, nice to see a group forming for mutual support.Iíll chime in with some advice from someone who was in your spot last year, and the year before. I have an LSAT of 150, and 2.9 CUGPA. I failed out of not one, but two colleges in the early 90ís, thus I have more than 10 Fís on my transcripts. Add in a few DUIís during the same perioed, and I was certainly NOT a stellar applicant. Yet, I got my stuff together, dealt with my learning disability (serve dyslexia) and went back to school in the late 90ís and got over 100 credits, all Aís, graduating Suma Cum Laude. Still with the Fís from before my LSAC GPA was/is miserable.In í03/04 I applied to 23 schools, getting into just 2, Roger Williams and Gonzaga. Neither was a place I wanted to spend the rest of my life, so I passed. Instead I got offered a chance to get my Master of Law Studies (basically an LLM before the JD, but because itís before they call it a Master of Law Studies, rather than a Master of Laws) at the University of Denver College of Law or Vermont Law School. I chose Denver because I was from AZ. Basically you take 2nd and 3rd year law classes, at the law school, with law and LLM students, and compete for the same grades under the same circumstances. Itís not easy, especially since everyone lese in the class has 2-3 years of law school experience on you. Anyway, once I figured out how LS works I did well, getting an A- average my first semester and 4.0 my second. Even sending off a law review article to get published.So I applied again for 04/05 to 25 schools. This time, with LS grades and a masterís degree from a LS to prove I could do the work. The other thing I did differently from before was I applied to more PT programs. What I did not know in 03 was that PT LSAT scores are NOT submitted to US News, so donít affect ranking. Thus adcoms DO look at your whole ďpackageĒ for admission. Last year I was accepted at Indianapolis, Houston, UNLV, Denver, Seattle, Creighton and a bunch of others.Anyway, it CAN be done, and you can get in, and you can do well with a ďlowerĒ LSAT score. I have friends from my program last year who have mid 140 LSATs and found the same success I did. Hang in there, and if you donít get in anyplace this year, try again next, but apply to PT programs as well!
