3.95 gpa / 154 lsat
« on: October 19, 2007, 11:09:11 PM »
I scored a 154 (admittedly low on this board, but I scored a 129 on my first diagnostic) on the September 2007 test - 3 points below my average on practice tests. With a GPA of 3.95, where do you think I can go? I hope to stay on the West Coast.

What schools would I have a legitimate shot at? Santa Clara? ASU?

Thanks!

3 points below practice average is a typical test day drop. Retaking would not be worth it.

You really need to retake, and with good prepping that is. If you're able to get a 3.95 GPA, you're also able to study hard enough to do considerably better than a 154, and even with a stellar GPA like that the LSAT score really is the alpha omega of law school admissions. Go get a 160+.
