Your LSAT score is hypothetical at this point. Who knows, maybe you'll end up with a 175? Maybe only a 165? Both are very possible. Speculating about possible schools and scholarships now is not going to do much good.

True. I guess there will still be time for this conversation when I have my three scores in.

If you're PT'ing in the upper 160's for tests that are 3 and 7 months away, there's no reason you can't get a 172+. Your effort to research schools ahead of time is admirable, but right now you should be focused on logic games and assumption questions, not playing out scenarios with hypothetical scores.

Thanks. I'm just pretty goal-oriented so I like to set understand my objectives and set acheivable goals ahead of time. If I expect to study for the better part of a year to get scores in a certain range, I naturally want to know why I'm doing that and what the end goal is.

Just don't limit yourself score wise. If you're averaging scores in the 166-169 range and are still 3 and 7 months away from your test dates, the sky is really the limit. 170 would be a great score, but honestly the way you're going, I think it would be a let down.

Aim high, don't worry about what happens if you get a 170 at this point. I'm guessing you'll wind up doing a couple points better.
