Non-Traditional Indeed

Postby Nulli Secundus » Mon Jun 21, 2010 7:21 am

Hello everyone,

I am from Turkey and working at Turkish Court of Accounts. (Equivalent of Government Accountability Office of USA, well at least in theory) I have a 115 / 120 TOEFL IBT score, 3.55 / 4.00 GPA and in the 10 practice exams I took (LSAT obviously) my scores fluctuated between 172 and 178. So my question is, as a 29 year old Turkish guy with these scores, what are my chances of actually getting admitted to a really good LS and going Biglaw after that? Is it even worth trying?

Thanks in advance.

Have to actually get your LSAT first, but mid-170s will definitely give you options.

Taking it in October. Meanwhile, I plan to just take 50~~ practice tests and just check KAPLAN explanations for the questions I failed at. LSAT seems fairly straightforward to require anything other than familiarizing yourself with the question types, I might be wrong though :P

Your gpa may hurt you at some of the very top schools. Lsac will recalculate your gpa anyway. My lsac gpa was .06 lower than the gpa i had calculated myself...

My advice would be to try and score in the mid 160-170's and you'll be golden. :D The lsat is definitely a learnable test imo...

Go to the best law school you can get into. High class rank will get you into biglaw once you're in school.
