ugh i suck at tests

Postby marty99 » Fri Oct 29, 2010 8:43 pm

OK. Here we go. I've never tested well. Maybe I have ADD. My GPA is 3.1, but I have two more semesters to higher it. I take my LSATs in December, but the last practice one I took I sucked balls on. I got a 146 -- granted I did it without stops and I was sick at the time, after classes and hungry.

I do go to school at a top school. But I need to make that LSAT score rise to at least a 153, at least.

Any suggestions for law schools in the Boston/New England area?

i can answer for boston:
suffolk law
northeastern
new england school of law

new england area is rather large.

as for never testing well, don't keep that from making as much of your potential as possible. the lsat can be learned. just takes discipline and practice. what are your weaknesses? TLS has lots of helpful threads on improve. lurk and your answers will be found.

I am an awful test taker also. However I broke the 90th percentile (barely) by repetition, repetition, and repetition. There's a "how to get 160+" thread on the LSAT forum that is helpful. I'm convinced that anyone who spends enough time in that forum and immersed in some prep material can get a 160 or higher. Good luck.
