So I have been studying for awhile for the lsat. My diagnostic score was a 139 and the highest score that I have received when taking practice test was a 157. I generally score between 152-155. I want to receive at lest a 160, but this test is starting to consume my life and I have no social life now.
I have been studying since March. I quit my job as a Part-Time Model for Ford Models to study for this test so I can barely pay my bills and my student loan. I have to rely on my parents for that and they are starting to get annoyed.
I want to apply to law school this cycle so I can get back to work until I attend next fall (if I get in). My goal is to get admitted to a T14, preferably Georgetown. I am a black male and I hear that this is a boost for us, but I don't know how much of a boost it is and I can't rely on that. I think a score in the 150s is hard to compete with people in the 160s and 170s.
I believe I have strong softs (congressional internships, interned in D.C., worked with politicians and mayors, interned for a law firm, graduated with an above 3.5 GPA, Top 20% in my graduating class at a Top Ten public university, involved in student government and other clubs, athlete, volunteered for Obama's presidential campaign, community service and a couple of other things).
Should I study for another two months and take the test in December or take the test this weekend and hope for the best?
