Law School Admissions
my LSAT score in the 160-163 range and my GPA is 4.0+. Whenever I try to do a search to see where people with similar stats got in literally all the comments just say “retake” or “you’re wasting that GPA” and I have to filter through dozens of people saying similar things before I actually find what I’m looking for.
Yes I understand that the “LSAT is learnable.” Yes I understand I could probably get into Harvard or Yale if I raised my score 10 points. I’m well aware and I think everyone else with my stats is too. it’s a little demeaning and condescending when people give that type of unsolicited advice, especially when for some of us the LSAT was still really hard (because the skills it tests and the skills that will get you a 4.0 in an undergrad program are very different) and we worked a lot for our score. If you don’t have any pertinent advice to give, why not just say nothing?
edit: y’all are…kind of mean. I don’t think I said anything in this post that warranted people telling me I shouldn’t be going to law school to begin with, that I should just go to LSD and not post here if I don’t want to be told to retake, etc.
I know this is a pretty basic question that can be answered via Google, but I want opinions from real people who are currently applying.
My LSAC GPA is above a 4.0, and my current LSAT is a 17low, but I’m retaking in October to try for a 17mid or higher. I see a lot of people with stats similar to mine say they plan to blanket the T14 and add a few safeties, but I’m going back and forth on whether I want to blanket because of app fees and a desire to stay close-ish to home (Illinois).
Anyway, idk if I’m making any sense, but tell me how many schools you’re applying to and why!
I’ve compiled a list of 50 questions, and I am writing (bullet point) answers for each of them and practicing every single one. But this is taking forever. Since the actual interview is only gonna have 6 questions, I wonder if I’m doing something counterproductive by prepping for every single question. How did you prepare for it and how long did it take you?
