4 time taking LSAT, include addendum?

Postby Think_lax86 » Sun Nov 14, 2010 4:49 pm

I took the LSAT 4, yes 4 times... scores, 151... 157, 159 and 158

should i include an addenum trying to explain why i took it so many times.


Honestly I wanted to try and get into the best school I could or get some kind of scholarship to a lower ranked school seeing how law school tuition is insane... does this need to be explained seeing how 4 times is way to many to take that test? thank you in advance

I would reconsider going to law school at all. Even your best score is unlikely to get you into a program with promising job opportunities. Unless money is of no concern, or you already had a job confirmed, I would reconsider applying at all....

Dude, take your 159, and go to the highest ranked law school that will take you. I bet you could fall somewhere in 50-60 depending on your UGPA.

LSAT doesn't mean anything once you get in.

+1

Having four scores in 150s is not a good omen. Think really hard on how much you want to be a lawyer.

this is awful, awful advice. the range of schools OP can get into are regional schools. pick a region and figure out which schools place in it.

How can you say that without knowing his UGPA?

Edit:

Listen bud, there are a top of people on here that are going to tell you to not go unless you can get into a t30 school or so. This is asinine. Go where you feel comfortable, where you could do well, and where you could compete well. Law school isn't entirely about brain power, or native logical reasoning ability as it is about work ethic. You'll be fine.

if OP has a 4.2, what national school would OP stand a chance at? unless URM, of course.

If he did have a 4.2 I would say it's worth an app though. I mean 4.2's are pretty rare and UVA might bite.
