Hey guys, I sort of have a unique situation and was wondering if I could get any advice..
I went to college for 3 yrs, but did not put much effort and pretty much flunked everything. I transferred 2 yrs ago, and currently have a 3.9 GPA. By the time I graduate, I should have a cum GPA of about 2.3. At the very least, there was an upward trend...
Anyway, I took the LSAT for the first time this December and do not think I did as well as I could have. I think I scored in the low 160's b/c I ran out of time on 3 sections- which is unusual for me. I am thinking of retaking it in Feb after I work on my timing issues and am pretty sure I can get high 160's or even break 170.
Now, I was wondering if I should cancel ... or keep a semi-decent score and then consider a retake. I really want/need to apply this year and the schools I'm looking at consider the higher score. Also, what sort of schools do you think I would have a good chance at? I know I have horrible past grades, but I have gotten my act together. I don't really have a good explanation about why I was such a loser either.... I'm was wondering if I have a shot at schools like Brooklyn, St. John's, etc.?
Appreciate any help I can get, sorry for my boring history
P.S. If i have no chance at a T1 school, then I will just give up now.
