plz give your advice

Postby keruan » Sat Feb 01, 2014 1:25 am

I am an international student and non-English speaker. I have already spent one year study LSAT. June 151, Dec 160. Do you think I should study for the third time or just not go.

If you want to be a lawyer, retake it

What were your PT scores like before the December test? How rigorously did you study? What sections were you losing points on?

PTs around low 160s, about 8 hours a day. RC is the worst part around 12, LR 4-6 per section, LG 0-2. I really think the scores is because of my English skill

You already know the answer to your own question.

Take a year and work on developing your command of the English language before studying for the LSAT. Study for the actual test for 3-5 months, then retake. If you aren't willing to do this, forget law school.

OP spent a year studying for the LSAT. OP will probably never do much better. I probably just wouldn't go to law school.

Coupled with the fact OP probably won't be able to qualify for federal loans, I probably wouldn't go at all.

Maybe if you can get a full ride to a T2 without super scary stips?

Do you want to be a lawyer in the US, or in your country of origin?

That you were able to score a 160 with a shaky command of English is impressive, but I think you should either not go, at least assuming that you plan on practicing in the US.
