I mean I am above the listed requisites - but to suppose that If I weren't, I would've felt like a "retarted" fudgetard barb who follows after unachievable dreams just to waste some goddamn money on TTT schools that would just simply give me the JD title and nothing else. Does it make that much difference going to higher-ranked, elite schools...?

Only if you want to get into a halfway-decent school and have a chance at success instead of dying in debtor's prison!

Um... I was 165, 3.06 and I never felt like a retard. I think you just wanted to brag about your numbers. Congrats.

Side note: No it doesn't make a difference in the decision process. It completely determines it.

I'm going to retake my 173 in February to be able to barter for my scholarship money / get off waitlists.

Plus the LSAT is wicked fun. Logic games FTW.

I retook a 171. If you think the bashing on TLS is unwarranted, you're in for a big surprise.

If you want money from CCN or if your GPA sucks you should go for it.

BTW I also retook a 170.

My GPA is okay, but I'd like to jump over the 75th percentile on the LSAT with like... almost every school if I can. I didn't study nearly enough for the first one. Basically I'd like to see some "fuck you" money from some schools so I can, uhh, not have debt basically.

retake, put off graduation and get your gpa up, then come back when you have your actual lsat score....

TCR to anyone who asks for opinons on the internet who doesnt have a 4.0 ( or 4.33 if you have A+s) and a 180.

Also, take time off and get valuable work experience
