Christ, you're touchy. You know you're a winner when you try to impress anonymous people online while simultaneously cursing them out.

If you can't take comments you dislike then don't post your numbers on the Internet in a thread titled "Please tender your advice."

1 year later... and I am so glad I never took your guys' advice. For others reading this, this thread is a prime example of why you should not listen to elitist TLS fu*ks. The whole time during this thread I was berated and made fun of.

I ended up going to LS inspite of what everyone said. I got a 3.95 GPA during my 1L, and now I am transferring to a T14. So for those of you were hating on me from the beginning- thank you, for giving me the motivation I needed throughout the year to step up to LS and kill it.

For others reading this- take peoples advice on this forum with a grain of an asteroid the size of moon. People on here are snobby, elitist, dbags who think so much of themselves. Pursue your dreams, work hard, and good things will come.

Congrats on doing well.

However, just because you did well your 1L year and are transferring doesn't mean that retake/reapply is not the credited response. It is much easier to predictably raise your LSAT score than it is to do well during 1L. While for some people going in and doing well 1L is their only option (such as people who really want to be lawyers and have already studied their ass off for 3 LSAT's), for the vast majority studying harder, retaking the LSAT, and reapplying will have them in a much better position.

Enjoy the debt. Sure would be a shame to strike out at 2L OCI.

Umm...I just reread this thread. The only poster who wasn't outright kind was NayBoer. In fact...there were over a handful of posts from you starting with "Thank you!"

Also, rare exceptions to rules don't tend to change rules. The odds were entirely against you--people don't give advice to people expecting that they will beat odds; they give advice out based on the odds.

+1.

Also, your grammar makes my head hurt.

I'm sorry guys I know this is an old post but I was just curious.. Did the OP do
Some kind of 175+ LSAT retake?

Saw on another thread she had a full ride to USD no stips with a 3.0 and a 156.. They gave me $25,000 top 50% with a 3.34 and a 169 LSAT. What on earth gives?

Either retake or reconsider your goals.


retake AND reconsider your goals.

You talk a good game, but have years of actual experience to indicate that indicate otherwise. If you can't clear 160 after two months of studying, LS should not be in the cards.

The LSAT is 10% natural ability and 90% practice and work.


That is the most outrageous statement I've ever read on cc. There are literally thousands of folks who could study (with John-the-Tutor) full time for months and NEVER crack 160, much less 170. A major part of ability, particularly with standardized tests, is brain processing speed. Some folks have it; most do not. That is a scientific fact.

Another part of doing well on standardized tests, such as the SAT and the LSAT, are reasoning skills. Some individuals have an innate ability (remember the kids in HG Geometry that easily aced it?); most do not. That too is a scientific fact. Moreover, reasoning skills are not taught in school. But, the good news is that, unlike brain processing power, reasoning skills can be learned, but it takes a LONG time. (Something learning specialists are just starting to learn.)
