Rules

  • Be nice.
  • Provide Info: When asking for advice, please provide as many details as possible (e.g., LSAT/GPA/URM, age, where you want to practice, ties to the area, what kind of law you want to do, total cost of attendance). When posting an admissions decision, please provide as much information as you are comfortable communicating. We will not remove a post for not including stats, as we respect people's privacy decisions and encourage everyone to participate. However, please consider the benefit that slightly anonymized stats would provide to the community.
  • On giving advice: When giving advice, answer the question first. If both options asked about are bad, you can point that out too and explain why.
  • Affirmative action discussion policy: See this post.
  • Do Not Offer or Solicit A Person To Call A School: See this post
  • Do Not Misuse Flairs: Do not deliberately use the wrong flair. In particular, do not flair a meme or off-topic post as anything other than Meme/Off-Topic, and do not use the "Admissions Result" flair for anything but actual admissions results.

Advice here often seems harsh. Here's why: on blunt advice

For book length coverage of the dire state of America's law school market, this is required reading: Don't go to law school unless

And a nifty flowchart of the book: flowchart

I wrote a list of factors that can help assess whether LS is a good/bad choice here

New Community Members

Welcome! We hope you are able to benefit from and contribute to our community of law school applicants. In order to cut down on spam and trolling, new members to r/lawschooladmissions and Reddit may have their posts automatically filtered for manual review based on a variety of account factors. If you believe your post was filtered and is still not approved after 24 hours, feel free to send a message to the mods. Thank you!

Retakes

Retakes are a no brainer in these circumstances:

  • You scored at the low end of your PT average
  • Your scores were still increasing in the weeks up to test day
  • You had less than perfect on logic games

If none of these are true for you, and you're clearly stalled, then make this clear. Most people posting have retake potential.

Even 2-3 points can make a large difference in admissions/scholarships. That's why so many people here post "retake!" to a lot of situations.

Canada?

Most people here are US. So most advice doesn't apply. Feel free to ask questions, though, there are some Canadians. Big differences:

  • Almost no scholarships.
  • Most schools are pretty good.
  • Go where you want to practice
  • Multiple LSAT takes are bad. Aim for no more than 2.
  • GPA is significantly more important. Do all you can to raise it.
  • For god's sake don't go abroad. That's Canada's TTT.
