thanks though... I feel good getting 86th percentile at age 18, when everyone else is 21+. Hopefully I'll get 167+ when I actually take the test seriously without going to school. We shall see.

You spent enough time and effort prepping (90 percent of your energy) that your grades suffered and your GPA is going down by .15. Let me remind you:

I think the LSAT did that.

I might feel differently if PL didn't sound like a raving moron in writing as well. So, no, I don't feel differently.

Almost. Plenty of people understudy drastically. Take a PT or two then go. In that case 162 doesn't really mean anything. But studying so hard you can't do undergrad, and still coming up 162 = idiot.

I don't really care what his LSAT score is, or where he goes to school. I don't really personally care one way or the other about him. I doubt any of us do.

But making a thread about getting "screwed" for dings at schools with LSAT medians way above his and then providing poor advice to the OP is bound to get people riled up.

PS. This meme-generating thing is fun. I really like the one I made... I think I'm gonna start doing it more often. Gotta douse the flames, right?

OP...go ask admissions officers what they say about it or current law school students/graduates. Then come back and post their responses. Frankly, I am going to stop trusting 0L's.

Thank you. I agree. Except once again..I was wondering whether I got screwed at hastings, davis, and loyola. Please don't act stupid. I know I had no chance at UVA, Berkeley...etc.

Attacking the person rather than the argument...hm. Saying that I got a 162 is clearly going to convince the OP that my thoughts on the matter should not be taken seriously. You Sir..are a douchebag. Clearly, you are all going to be great lawyers.

Don't lump me in with other posters who are attacking your LSAT score. I got a 162 on my first try, and it is a pretty decent score.

I'm simply arguing that your claim that you got "scewed" is a silly one, as is your claim that grade inflation is the reason you were shut out of these schools. My reference to your LSAT score was not used to slam you or attack you, but rather, I referenced it to criticize your claims that you've been making over the last few days.

Assumption fail. You don't know how much total energy I put into the LSAT and school work. I just said I focused about 90 percent of my total energy on the LSAT. I didn't say how hard I worked or how much energy I put in. I didn't care about my grades anyway because I inflated that shit with CC classes. I goofed around my entire undergraduate education and will still graduate with above an A- average. Cheap? I think so.

Man, I said this earlier but my CC classes were really hard compared to my Undergrad. Many of my CC professors taught at Northwestern and one at University of Chicago. They taught at my CC to give back to the community, or to lower my GPA, I am not sure.

Close my friend. College of Lake County. It is like 30 minutes from Northwestern!

Edit: My fav teacher was a Journalism professor at Northwestern, he was a sick individual that had a terribly depressing view on life. It invigorated me.

You put in 100% of your total energy. 90%+10%=100%. Get it? Maximum effort split between college and the LSAT. So you:
a) Put a ton of energy into the LSAT and are backing away from that statement now that people are making fun of your 162;
b) Have low total energy; or
c) Repeatedly lie and contradict yourself (but maybe it's just your "relative").

I'm betting on a combination of "a" and "c."

Clearly...you are assuming again and clearly you don't know me. And I'm not ashamed of a 162 anyway. That's slightly below the average at hastings/davis which are T1 schools.

But the fact still remains you are a douche bag for your comments.

3.6/167 at urbana isn't exactly boast material.

Should there be an age limit on this forum?

OP, if you do decide to take an extra year, start towards a degree in education (if your school offers it). The classes tend to be pretty easy and, if you find yourself at a loss for a job when law school is over, you can finish up your ed. degree. It's not great, but it's work with (usually) guaranteed insurance and retirement. You could do worse while searching for a better job.

I'm pretty happy with it, actually. Sure, Northwestern was my #1 so it would be easier for the g/f to get a job, but I grew up in Champaign. I'm excited to see my family again.
