It is OK comrade, only capitalists are satisfied with anything below a 175.

With that score, you have a shot at H or S if your GPA is 3.5+.

Tell me about it. I got a 175 and I left a question blank on accident. :| How do you think that makes me feel?


Statistically speaking, there is little difference between 175 and 177, and I would think that this will especially hold true for the Oct. '10 LSAT. So it's really not that bad at all. Bragging rights, however, do not follow cold statistics.

I'm a retaker. My average is now only 171 as opposed to 172 or even 173 if I did better. And the fact is that I should have done atleat 3 points better but missed some easy problems, which still stings. But I'm coping.

This poll would be much better if every thing was <1XX, instead of simply XX

I'd apply to at least Stanford. But retake or not, it's a great score that opens the door to great schools, even if your GPA is not stellar.

The 169 I got was pretty disappointing, although I wouldn't have been happy with anything less than a 173. Basically, from 172-168 is like LSAT purgatory.

Anything with a 6 in the tens place. I'll be happy with anything in a 7 in the tens place and totally shocked with anything that rounds to a 180.

Given my horrendous GPA and unremarkable work experience I won't get into any school whose 75% is greater than 175.

177 is above every schools 75% and a 175 is not.

I got the impression that schools don't really care that much about 25th - 75th because their median is what effects their rank. Not sure though.

I was shooting for no less than a 170, so 169 or below would be disappointing. I got a 167. Guess how long I cried :cry: :cry: :cry:

Thats not what it seems like based on what people say... H has some seriously high floors! Unless you go there for UG
IDK I was holding out for H too until I got my 174. Now its more like CCN. Eh I like NYC

For me, any score near the low end of my PT range is disappointing.

But yeah TLS is ridiculous.

I was complaining about my 162 on OCT. to my aunt (who is a lawyer, and a heavy hitter in a major corporation, not to brag but it adds to the effect) and she told me to stop being such a jerk...

EDIT: for clarification, my score was quite disappointing.

That is completely false. At least, not anywhere near a decent chance. Look at LSN. Everyone with those numbers got rejected from H and S.
