Taking questions.


Why do you think you scored so poorly originally?

People actually tend to miss that point a lot in arguments on here though. Not this particular one, but in other ones. Like when people argue that the LSAT doesn't measure anything and that it shouldn't be counted as measuring anything, they like to point out that the bar is this great big equalizer when it's too low of a bar to do that.

I really have to say, I don’t believe this at all. This guy got accepted to NYU after taking the LSAT 7 times? I call shenanigans. Plus he has a 3.6.
A 171 w/ 3.6 is not a strong applicant to NYU w/ only one score under their belt in the first place, let alone 7.

I know plenty of people who couldn't score 155 on the LSAT if they studied for years. They're just not smart enough. Same is true for 170+, though much more so.


My point is that if anyone really wants a 170 and believe they could get it, then go for it. Be patient, persistent, and give it your best.


Your point seems to change a lot from post-to-post. just saying.

The Boalt with a 3.6 is what's making me (most) suspicious.

Taking questions.

Do you feel qualified to answer questions about the LSAT? I'd rather ask a wall rather than ask you anything about the LSAT. That'd be like someone asking Ross Perot the secret to getting elected President of the United States.

Hmm... According to hourumd.com he has an 11% chance of acceptance. I guess Boalt really takes the holistic view of applicants….
