3. People who score 150 on the LSAT are stupid. I'm sorry, but it's true. If that's really your maximum potential, you are not qualified to hold other people's legal fates in your hands.

4. Schools that accept people with 150 LSATs should not exist, but, unfortunately, people are stupid enough to pay law school tuition at the worst schools, so this will not change soon.


In reference to your #3, you really have no idea what you're talking about. You're also not considering outside factors. I've known people who got into T14 withs 150-155 because they're more interesting/better life experience than the average trust fund idiot. Sorry but no committee is super impressed with the fact that your daddy dropped 2K on a class/tutor.

Also one of my friends, who scored a 150, is now at the top of his class. And he is just one of thousands. The LSAT is not a predictor of law school success, nor is it a measurement of intelligence.

Your smug arrogance shows more lack of intellect than someone who scored a 150.


They were URMs.

HTH.

This post is TTT.

To the people with low LSAT's who say that LSAT doesn't predict anything, what does predict it that you can quantify?

Connections? That seems less fair than saying those who can't do well on logic tests don't deserve to go to a good school. You're saying if you're not born rich -> screw you.

GPA in some joke major?

Wanting it? How would you quantify that?
