The irony is dropkicking this thread right in its face. Oh, and I ABSOLUTELY call troll on this one.

First of all, I am not a man, I wish I was but that's not the point

Then these law schools are only temporary, if I were for any nightmarish reason going to continue in either then I will let go of my dream and look elsewhere, I don't want to go to a school that will only crown with shame and have me "blink" whenever I mention its name.

I have a question of great importance, can I drop from Cooley, in the case that transfer proved impossible, then start all over in Duke once I get the score required?


I'm not sure you want to have dropping out of Cooley on your record.


Good point, I did not know it would go on my record, thank you

People please.......I am DEAD serious, I am registered to take the June LSAT and I am not even sure if I will take it. If you have nothing useful to offer than kindly do not offer anything, least of all rude and mean comments that communicate nothing but mean-spiritedness.

What is your living situation? Where are you from? You seem to know almost nothing about this process. Bt you are not alone. You need to read these forums and learn how to study effectively. All the info you need is here including detailed guides for aspects of the application process.

You can not go to either of these schools. You need to figure out a better living situation and in the meantime you need to find quiet places to work. There are plenty of public libraries.

PTing is short for practice tests- how are you doing on the practice exams you are taking and how many have you been doing?

Thank you for being one of the few sane people here. I will research my options and do what I can.

Best of luck to all.

So yeah doubt this is real but looked up Wesleyan

I mean someone at Wesleyan might be at 152/3.6 or so. You said you had a 'pretty high' GPA. Someone could take ~3 PT's because they have 'no time' and get a 152 even if they are decently smart (bombing LG).

I still think these threads are classic even if it is fake :D

I'm at a T14, the admissions dean once told me and a couple other students that she receives dozens of transfer applications from Cooley each and every year...she doesn't exactly look kindly on these applicants. I imagine deans at other T-14's, including Duke, would take a similar approach.

You can reliably grind an LSAT score into the 170's, it's much more difficult to get grades in the top 5% at any school than it is to score a 170+.


Sorry, but that's just not true. Not everyone can score in the 170s. That's like saying you can reliably turn yourself into an Olympic gold medalist. Talent is heavily involved.

Also, this is a shit flame.

Scoring a 170 is more like training to run a mile in under 7 minutes than becoming an Olympic level runner. Sure, not everyone will be able to do it even with months of practice, but some will also be able to do it on their first attempt.

Let's not pat ourselves on the backs too hard for our 170s now.

Anyway, the LSAT is more predictable than 1st year law school grades, regardless of which is easier. You can have a decent idea how you'll do on the LSAT going into it, but seems like nobody can really know how they'll do in law school before starting.

Maybe a 6 minute mile would be a better example, idk.

No, they really can't.

I couldn't run a 7-minute mile when I was rowing for a D-I school, I couldn't run a 7-minute mile when I did varsity track for four years in high school, and I can't run a 7-minute mile now that I'm 32 and run twice a week and play hockey twice a week. I could break 9 minutes right now, but not a hell of a lot faster. I think my fastest ever was around 7:30, and I was probably 14.

I beg to differ here..

Most of you try to portray the LSAT as this test that only those especially endowed can score high in and those who "haven't got it" are alas helpless and nothing much can be done. It's really just a skill that with dogged perseverance can be surely acquired if not perfected. I know this for a fact from personal experience and have read so many stories that corroborate this. Many who thought it was helpless ended up scoring in the 99%.

I can tell why your score is low.
generalizing from small/unrepresentative sample size?
