Choosing the Right Law School / What should I do?
« on: October 20, 2006, 04:22:29 PM »
I got my BA(Hons) from UofT in history. My overall GPA is 3.74 but for my last 2 years I had a 3.92. I am currently in grad. school. I wrote the lsat in Sept. 2005 and got a 154-- I didnt take a course and studied on my own for a month. On the test I got 1 wrong on the long reading and only 7 right on the logical games (mainly due to a panic attack). Should I apply to a tier 3/4 school with the lsat that I have or re-write...keep in my I HATE the LSAT with a passion.

GPA 3.64 (Top Public Canadia)
LSAT 154

I want to go to a school somewhere in either the Great Lakes regions (Michigan perhaps) or New England. A nice campus would be nice  and low tuition for non-residents.

Thanks everyone!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Not terrible, but not great either

Hey guys,

I have been following the discussions on this board for a few months now but have never posted. I just got my score yesterday and am not sure what to think. I got a 169, which is lower than my practice average of 173-174. I suppose it could've been worse. My GPA is decent (3.77 from Cornell with a double major in Science/Literature) and I have study abroad and some good leadership and internships. I really really want to go to NYU or Columbia but feel like the best I can hope for is a spot on the wait list. What do you guys think?

Confused.

I'd apply to Cooley, I can't see any other school wanting you. ;D

Studying for the LSAT / Re: just wanted to say...

thanks to those on this board that supported me in the last 3 months and urged me to retake - I would have stood by my 145 and hoped for the best. I may not have your 160's and 170's, but I'm not aiming for the same schools most of you are, and I'm more than content with what I got this time around. So I wanted to say, before i pass out from sheer exhaustion (so nervous over the last few nights I barey slept) that I truly beleive part of my 9 points is due to the help I got on this board. So to those who encouraged me and the other <150-ers, thanks. Now...to the admission section for the next 9 months!

Congrats! you rock! :)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Statistics: LSAT score by major (MUST SEE)

Remember all, those stats are from 91/92, I think when the games were much harder than they tend to be now.

Studying for the LSAT / Should I re-take

Here's the thing...

I got a 154...Bad, as I was going for a 160.  BUT here is my score breakdown...

2 Wrong on RC
16 wrong on LG
the rest you can figure out. 

I had a panic attack during the games and only finished 12, got half right (after the initial panic of game 1, I got everything right on the light-swtich game).  so it's not like I sucked all around- and I have done well on the games in practice.

told them i "got an email with my score" and they said my score *isn't* a 163...hahaha....but they said i'm going to "have to keep checking" for when the scores will be released because "they  haven't told us when they will be released" - she seemed really apologetic yet skeptical. i found it funny.
haha you rock  ;D ;D you're my fav. poster on here! :) Love the pic...very sexy.  Good luck!

Call and ask a general question AS IF your score had already come in TODAY.  If they get all shocked and say stuff like, "score were not relseased today" we will at least know.


What's great is that your signature line still has a purported "Oct. 05 LSAT score" from earlier today when you flamed us.  Nice!
haha  ;D I was just teaching you all a lesson.  I had your good in mind :). Honest
