Awwww, Truth!!!  I'm so, so sorry that you're so down.  But you CAN still go to law school!!! Maybe a T14 isn't in your future but it's not for MOST of us.  My GPA sucks and I'm still going to try to get into some T1 schools.  You just cast your net far and wide and there will be a school that will be thrilled to have you.  Honest!

And 1 pt is still an improvement!!!!!  At least you didn't score lower.  A lot of people did that.  You scored better than most people who took that test, you should be proud of that.  Better than most college graduates who are applying to law school.

Don't get too discouraged bro, no matter what your interests (yes even "BigLaw") they can be pursued even if you don't go to a T14.

Truth, you haven't blown it. I know a lot of people who got in the high 150s and they went to law school - granted, not T14, but tier 1 or 2 and they have jobs they LOVE right now. In fact, those are the people I consulted when I started considering law school, not the people in the big law firms who hate their lives. If it's something you really want to do, you need to go for it. Apply. You can't get in if you don't apply.

You didn't blow anything.

Don't forget that you're a brother and that's worth roughly extra 7pts. Plus work/Army.

T25 no problem.

However, you told me you'd go to Cooley part-time with my numbers, and we're about even now.

Eh, don't worry about it. I'm in the same boat as you, only having scored one point higher on this one than I did on the June (163-164). The way I'm looking at it: now at least I know my target/reach/safety schools, and I can concentrate on where I have a realistic shot at getting in, and where I should end my pipe dreams.

Sorry Truth, hang in there.  I was crushed when I got my first score, but I just kept at it.  Did you consider taking a course?
