This is not true, it's ~0.4, which is extremely strong for such a chaotic system.

no 139 scorer knows what the word cliche means nor are they able to look it up in a dictionary and find out what it means.
In addition, the second sentence quoted above is much too complex for someone with the mind of an 8 year old to be able to write. FLAME!

Are you retarded? 139 is like 1 standard deviation below average. Given the self-selecting population of LSAT test takers, it's quite possible that it's above average for the general population.

While yes, those people do exist, they do not in fact know how to use a computer keyboard, much less know how to log onto the internet or register for an online forum.

Nice try OP!

Dude, you're an asshole. Absolutely no reason to be treating people this way. While 139 is certainly a pretty bad score, this type of tone is derogatory and unhelpful.

And it is very, very possible that many posters on TLS have scored similarly on TLS.

WOW! You are sooooo cool. I want to be just like you. Seriously only people with high lsat scores should be allowd to breath all others should be enslaved and sent to another planet. We really should rid this planet of anyone who scored lower than a 170 because they are so unworthy of precious life.
CONGRATULATIONS ALL HIGH SCORERS YOU HAVE AN AMAZINGLY WORTHLESS SKILL

and for those of you who just had to chime in just to leave a bunch of unnessacary condescending and annoyingly prententious ass comments, just go get a life somewhere else. Why would you waste your time being a jerk to a stranger online. I bet your on top of the world right now aint ya mr. hello there . Your a blast.

I understand your frustration and your tone, and I also called out Mr. Hello There for being a jerk. A low LSAT or poor LS credentials are not a statement on the person as a whole.

But you do need to understand 1) how bad the legal market is and 2) how bad the schools that accept 140/150 LSATs are. It is very easy to write it off as condescension and elitism, but that really isn't what it is. I spend so much time on here and give my input like I do because I am so grateful for people doing the same to me when I was a 0L. If not for TLS, I can't even picture what my education and career path would have been. I (and so many of the other law students and graduates) are just trying to pay it forward and help people with their law school process. TLS is a great resource.

I agree that high scorers have a pretty worthless skill, because the LSAT really has nothing to do with law school success. But you know what? If you're going into law, you better get used to it. My grades are also not an indicator of how good of a lawyer I'm going to be, but firms still drool over top students and cast off those with low grades. If you can't handle being judged based on arbitrary benchmarks, you're in the wrong field. The LSAT may be a worthless skill, but it is not a worthless number, and you'd be wise to realize that ASAP before you or anyone else sinks $200,000 and three years into a poor investment due to your low LSAT.

Thank you so much for your comment and just so you know I can handle the remarks, no problem. Many of the comments here were very helpful and i really do apretiate them but there are a few that left me curious on what their purpose was. I came into this forum with a question and it is unfortunate that I just discoered this website. I should have talked to someone other than mom before I got fully into the process. I also really should'nt have blindly guessed on most of the lsat(meaning i randomly filled in circles), also was on the verge of an anxiety attack, lol. It was not a good test for me obiously. The fact that Im convinced that I am dislexic and extremely ADD and have not done anything about it is also a small factor to my low score. I am primarily the artsy fartsy creative type.

Like I said earlier too, I do not want to be an attorney. I want the education and experience and options of a law degree. I never started this to be an attorney although I would like to be a part of the innocence project, but thats a whole other story.

I think you should look to other avenues. Why not a public policy type program? You could do anything with that that you could with a law degree except practice law.

Can't you mark C all the way down on the LSAT and do better than a 139?

After reading this thread, I feel as if I also would have been an ass to you if I replied on page 1 because "retake not an option" and "i scored a 139" should never be in the same sentence especially now we know you guessed on most of the LSAT and didn't even bother to study.

Maybe for you but not for me. I hae nothing to be embarrased about, so I got a low ass score on the lsat oh my god its the end of the world for the secret illuminati of the law school forum. I started this thread for advice and i got it. Why are you here? If I am so embarrasingly dumb then go away already. Geeze. I think you law school people need a shot of tequila or maybe even a fat ass blunt so you can come back down to earth with all of us mere mortals.
