3.72 GPA / 145 LSAT Score

Postby Puertoricancop » Wed Aug 09, 2017 6:23 pm

Hello everyone, I am wondering if anyone has had a full scholarship offer to any schools with a 145 Lsat score? I am looking to apply to different schools and I am taking the September LSAT to attempt to raise my score but in the mean time I am trying to find out if anyone has been offered a Full scholarship or good amount of money.

A little background about myself:
I am 25 years old, I owe no student debt as I went through all my degrees on scholarship or grant. I am currently working in a personal injury law firm. I do have a learning disability but I never let that stop me from giving it my very best.
My Current Degrees:
Bachelors Degree in Police Science with a double minor in law and security management - 3.72 GPA (John Jay College)
Masters Degree in Criminal Justice with a concentration in Criminal law and procedures - 3.5 GPA (John Jay College)
Masters Degree in Urban Affairs with a concentration in Public Policy - 3.65 GPA (Queens College)
Post Graduate Certificate in Criminal Investigations - 3.7 GPA (John Jay College)

I know my Lsat score is not the best but I am terrible at taking exams. I plan to use my JD for management purposes in Non-Profit and Government Jobs.

It's quite difficult to get a worse LSAT score if we're being honest. I'd be really sad if this is the caliber of student that ends up running the government. Would explain a lot about why they're highly inefficient and can't get anything done properly though.

CUNY Law might not actually be a terrible move for you. You are below their LSAT 25%, but your GPA is high for them and its cheap & public interest-oriented which might fit your goals if you want to stay in NYC. Alternatively, study up and, if you haven't already, ask for accommodations for the LSAT.

No, and that's not what a JD is for.
