3.85/154

Postby HarvardHopeful21 » Sun Jul 08, 2018 9:56 am

Hey everybody,

So I just took June LSAT and got a 154! Around where I was PT’ing, so no surprises! I’ve wanted to be an attorney my whole life and just wanted to see what you all thought of where I should go/where I have good odds of getting in with that score and a 3.85UGPA! Thanks in advance.

Back to your favorite study location to study more and harder to retake the LSAT. That LSAT score is criminally low given your GPA.

Never use an exclamation point ever again.

In all seriousness though. You have a solid UGPA. Do NOt waste it on a 154. Start to look around on here for study strategies and find a good course - do whatever you have to do to seriously increase that score before applying.

You need to study a LOT and get your score up significantly. With a 154 you're pretty much looking at sticker at a school that you should only go to with a significant scholarship or a partial scholarship at a school that you should only go to on a full scholarship. (Different story if you're a URM, but still probably worth a retake since, if you are, you'd actually have a non-zero chance at Harvard if you could get mid 160s)

I would reiterate what the above posters said - you've got a great GPA and a better LSAT could do wonders for you.

However, what are your goals? What kind of job are you looking for and in what location/region?

In light of your stated goal you should be shooting for at the very least the low 170s.
