I am been a tax attorney in business for over thirty years. Let me share some insights to you.
First, I have found that the LSAT is a VERY poor test for law school admission. This is particularly true because of its severaly timed nature. It is unbelievable that the law schools place such as high emphasis on it. However, the test does have a huge impact on admission,and we have to live with it.
Secondly, it is my understanding that the logic games portion of the test,which can be studied for, is only 25% of the entire exam. Thus, suggesting that someone restudy the logic games portion alone may not really help them. It depends on how badly they did on that section in the first place and how much they studied for the test. Frankly, if I had to retake the test, I would focus heavily on critical reading,which represents 50% of the test, unless my understanding of these percentages is incorrect.
Third: Again, how hard did you study for the test? I certianly would retake it, but if you studied a lot and still didn't do well, you will probalby not improve doing the same thing. The definition of idiocy is expecting different results doing the same thing. Try a different approach. Work on your weakest areas. If necessary, take another review course,but change what you were doing.
Finally, assess your career goals. Yes, getting into a law firm from a bottom rung law school won't be an easy task,but it isn't impossible. Consider less competitive paths such as government, public defender's office,working in accounting firms or consulting firms. Keep an open mind. I would also write articles. Law firm partners are impressed by those that have published several articles.
Also, there are many open fields such as tax where you don't need a top law school credential. Consider working and training in some of these fields.
For real? You wrote that crap and you're calling others out for giving bad advice.
