Kitty, someone I know got a 141 LSAT (just a really bad test-taker, too) and had a GPA of around 2.8 (college athlete who didn't really care at the time.)  He had to go through a summer program at Widener (Harrisburg) before being admitted, but successfully completed it and was accepted.  He's now a consulting attorney for the State Dept. in DC, and loves it.  These situations are definitely what you make of them.  Long story short, I think Widener is realistic for you.  (And Widener is T4, but it's only at the bottom of T4 because they list T3's and T4's alphabetically.)

God, that is nice to hear. I am sooo stressed out about the whole thing!! I really feel called to helping the animals in this fashion and I am TERRIFIED of not being accepted somewhere. Thanks for the pep talk!! I REALLY appreciate it! ;D

Redsox1079!!

Hey! I know, Bob Barker rules!! I am so sure I could go to Duke, either.  I did apply to two schools with animal law electives, but they are definitely reaches (as are most schools with my numbers!!). I am hoping that my work experience will be impressive and they will let me come anyway!

Anyway, it is torture waiting!! Great to hear from a fellow animal-rights attorney to be. Good luck! :D

legalkitty,

I got a 141 on the LSAT my first time, and I retook it 2 years later and got a 142. And that's after I enrolled with Princeton Review.  In my practice exams I got around low 150s. Standardize tests are not for everybody. It is a necessary evil for those who want to go to higher education.  Best of luck in whatever school you choose to go to.
