From 137 to 164 - Any highter?

Postby Philipsssssss » Fri Nov 12, 2010 3:50 pm

2 years ago I did a cold LSAT and got 137.
I took the October LSAT and got 164.


I put in a lot of studying.

Stats:

RC: -5 (I usually got -9 -10 but somehow on test day i did a -5) (English 3rd language)

LR: -6 (I usually get -3 or so)

LR: -6 (I usually get -3 or so)

LG: -3 (should have been -0, dammmit)


Question:

As i understand from reading various interviews with ADCOM's, if a person got a 164 but then got a 166 for example, this is not a meaningful difference, it shows that the true level is somewhere in between there.

I have very stong credentials otherwise, GPA of 3.6 (3.89 graduation), superb LOR's....

I have no time to study for the Dec exam. I am way too busy with graduate schoolwork and a demanding 40+ job.

Do i have any chance in TOP 20?

I don't know if i can break the 170. I did before, i even got 178 on one of the first tests, but it was a "retake" after a year, so it certainly doesnt show anything of importance.

Well depends on what your PT average was before the oct test.

Did you drop significantly, or does the 164 reflect your average?

From what it seems, you did worse on the other 3 sections but made up a bit in RC.

I scored in the range of 163-168 consistently.
I did hit 170's but I think it was some old tests I didn’t do for a while. Untimed exams are easy to hit the 175 mark, but that’s not important.

So any idea if a shot at T20 is realistic? I’ll have my Master in Accounting prior to entering Law School, and I want to do Tax related law.
