What LSAT Should I Shoot For

Postby mattf » Fri Jan 09, 2015 5:28 pm

Seems like I'll be finishing off with a 3.5-3.6 GPA. What LSAT should I shoot for to get into a T20 with some money?

180. 168+ more realistically

This is exactly right. You shouldn't stop studying/preparing just because you're PTing at a 168. Work hard until the LSAT, do the absolute best you can, and go from there. Don't limit yourself by giving up early because you've achieved your minimum goal score in practice.

Here are the current class profiles:

At the very least get above median & aim for 75th percentile or higher to maximize scholarship opportunities.

Your GPA is on the low end, so definitely study hard for the LSAT to counteract that.

Always shoot for the best - 180
