I'm very close to where you are... GPA: 3.96, LSAT scores: 157 June '10, 151 Oct '10. I already have my LOR and everything ready to go, as my PT were in 162-168 range. I have absolutely no idea what I'm supposed to do now. My boyfriend suggested taking an internship or job with the Atty Gen in my state for some WE before I apply again, but what does this mean for the LOR my professors have already sent in for me?

Same boat.
LSAC GPA: 3.9 (Ivy)
LSATs: Dec 09 - 164, June 10 - cancel, Oct 10 - 165
Good softs and 4 LORs

Really hoping for Georgetown or possibly Berkeley or Cornell. Know I can get into GWU, as I actually applied last cycle and got in there with just the 164 (and was "preferred waitlisted" at Georgetown last year). Not sure what to do next...just apply, or petition for one more retake in December. Applying late definitely hurt me last year. Thoughts? Thanks!

Petition for a retake. There's the guy who took the LSAT 7 times to get a 171 and got in everywhere (except H and S I believe). You have nothing to lose. If you're aggressive enough to give yourself another shot to get a score you want, you shouldn't feel bad or think twice about it.

Graduating soon with a lot of debt, can't find a job, and I got an LSAT score that a monkey could get. Wow, what the hell do I do? UCONN was always high on my list, but it looks like I have no shot in hell there.

4.0/163. I'm five points below pt average. Retake is possible, but considering WUSTL and hoping for Vandy.

LSAC GPA: 3.96
LSAT: 159 :(

I am devastated because my PT average was 10 points higher than my score.. Retaking will majorly interrupt my life and probably bring my GPA down, but I don't think I can apply to schools with a 159, knowing I can do so much better.

Anyone else who can retake but is hesitant to register??

So you're saying he got into CCN despite taking it 7 times? What was his lowest?

I have a legit excuse for my painfully low score, but I am still somewhat worried that it's a huge mark against me.

I'd say you definitely have a shot, depending on your softs and LORs (and if your 4.04 GPA is LSAC). My friend got into Harvard with a 168, although he was also Harvard undergrad, great GPA, double minority and a very interesting guy overall.

I have no idea what I'm going to do other than retake, as I was PTing in the 170s on a consistent basis.

Thanks for your kind words, mehs. I hope I'm not chasing an elusive dream. That is my LSAC GPA, I have decent softs and LORs, but nothing I would call "spectacular." Am also not a double minority, not even a single minority. :P Bleh.

GPA: 3.8
LSAT: 163

Good for all the FL schools I want. Wondering if I could possibly sneak in Emory or BC. Was taking to one of my co-workers and they suggested maybe staying working full time in the Reserves/Guard and doing LS part time and try for Fordham/GT/GW, but my Post 9/11 benefits only run for about another 33 months so I'd still have to find employment.

Also, anybody got any good ideas for writing an addendum for 2 sub-150 LSAT scores? They were both over two years ago, but now that I finally have a decent score and have to write one, I'm wondering just how much of a WTF the adcomms are going to wonder with them.

Any other reverse splitters heading north? Apparently, they weigh GPA and LSAT equally in Canada.

I'm applying to UBC, the University of Toronto and maybe McGill if I can fit in a few months of French review prior to school.

Think about it? You get 164/3.9, you can go to UBC, graduate with decent grades, and get a decent $60k-110k job in a Vancouver law firm. And you graduate with <$80,000 in debt.

Go to a U.S. law school that takes 164 LSAT's, and you're likely to be cleaning toilets for the rest of your life.

Its funny you should mention that. I'd just come to realization myself that this might be a better choice for me in regards to connections to Asia. BC in particular would be great for that

GPA tends to be favoured slightly more across the board. The lowest GPA distribution you'll find is about 40% LSAT, 60% GPA. The rest have some sort of admissions index or use 30% LSAT, 70% GPA.

But yeah, you can get an amazing education in Canada without the fear of 200,000 k in dept. I like that prospect very, very much.

GPA: lsac cumulative 4.02
LSAT: 166

i'm stubborn. this past thursday, i submitted applications to harvard, stanford, columbia, nyu, chicago (binding early decision), and notre dame. according to lawschoolpredictor.com, my chances at stanford, nyu, chicago are decent; harvard and columbia are long-shots; notre dame is inevitable.

if i get in to one of the top 10, i'll go; if not, i'll do something else for a few years then endure this stressful process once again. after working so hard in undergrad i will not settle for a mediocre school. i think most of you feel the same way.

i think this makes you a good candidate, not a reverse-splitter.
