Hi guys. So I recently looked at my undergrad transcripts and saw that I have a number of Ws for some semesters. Could this get me dinged from the T14 or am I being unreasonably pessimistic?

A lot of the URMs at my school flunked out the first semester. Hence, our school took in transfer students.

So are you saying the Ws won't be much of an impact? Or are you saying they're a predictor of failure once I get in somewhere?

Along the lines of the recent poster...

So my LSAC GPA is a 2.92, and on my transcript are a few 1.0 range grades - despite everything averaging out to a non-horrendous GPA, should I be worried about the presence of those super low grades on my transcript?

Just took my first diagnostic (preptest 62, studying with The LSAT Trainer's 12-Week LSAT Study Schedule (here: http://bit.ly/2mZX2LI)).

RC: 12/27
LR(1): 14/26
LG: 4/23
LR(2): 14/26

Raw Score: 44
Reporting Score: 143

I'm looking for advice on how to improve 20-30 points by June. Helpful comments appreciated!

I'm definitely serious; I think I'd be doing myself a disservice not to practice enough to get the highest score possible. Thanks for the helpful advice!

Downward trend or upward trend? Any reason for the low grades?

I think it's more frowned upon when it's a downward trend (which I had for various reasons I didn't explain to adcomm lol). I also think it's one thing if you were just messing around and goofing off instead of doing work vs. some sort of thing going on in your life that interrupted the normal flow of things for you that you can explain to adcomm. Anyone else feel free to correct me/add on though.

Athlone McGinnis are you on the RooshV forums?

Anyhow, this thread is freaking me out. My undergraduate GPA is sucky but I've been practicing the LSAT recently and getting above 170. i was considering applying to law school 5 years ago but went an alternate route instead. I'm thinking this is the time to apply and get some MONEY MONEY MONEY!

I didn't realize there were that few blacks with decent LSAT scores!
