E5 Navy, 4 years active duty, 2 left
Job was IT
GPA 3.8 right now (graduating in August)
Taking the LSAT hopefully in September (hitting mid to high 160s on the practice tests)
No deployments (transferring and hitting tail end of one)
I do have a quick question if anyone of you might be able to share some insight. When I go to register for an LSAC account and choose my school it doesn't show up in the dropdown. Anyone know why this might be? It is a relatively new school being founded in 2008 and at first I thought it was because of the accreditation. However, it holds the same accreditation as most of the other ones in the state that are in the dropdown boxes. Not sure how to even proceed if I can't register for an account because of this....any advice helps! Thanks.
Welcome! We're very similar except I'm almost done with 5 years of active Navy service. MU2 here.
I can't stress how important getting a good LSAT score will be (I have a 164 LSAT and a 4.0 UGPA with a 3.98 master's GPA and I haven't been having the cycle I thought I would with T15 schools). If you're taking in September, you have plenty of time to study for a great score. Breaking 170 with your veteran status and GPA could open a lot of doors for you. There are a lot of good resources on here for getting a good LSAT score. I wish I would have found TLS before I applied to law school.
The LSAC school problem you're having sounds unique. I would call them. They have always been very friendly and helpful when I've had problems. Good luck!
