165 enough for GULC pt?
« on: February 05, 2007, 03:47:35 PM »
I was hoping for a 170 but ended up with a 165.

Breakdown:
-4 lr combined
-7 RC ran out of time - (preptest 50 i got -2)
-6 AR last game took too much time; guessed on many

Games are generally my forte but i didn't do so well on them this time around.

I was planning on taking the lsat this saturday but now i'm not too sure.  I ended up canceling last time around.  The only reason I'm taking the lsat now is for georgetown part-time. 

Does anyone know what their 25% to 75% lsat is for the pt division?

Looks like you have a shot depending on your GPA. But if you look on LSN, they seem to be less numbers driven for PT. This probably stems from the fact that they don't have to report these #'s to US News. Good Luck

probably not unless you have some serious soft factors (differentiating work experience, published work etc).

165 puts you in their PT range. It's definitely worth a shot (worked for me!--I have the same LSAT)

Good luck!
