I know some who have jumped 20+. Obviously you can't do that since 186 is not on the scale.

I went 163-->174. I think getting you score to 172+ isn't unheard of and maybe worth the effort.

What? Thats absurd; there are plenty of schools in the top 30 going to.

15-30 with money >>>10-15 at sticker.

Success post graduation will be equally dependent on success at either institution, the differences are more than likely minimal.

The differences are probably more regional. I would guess a Vandy grad and a Chicago grad have similar chances in Nashville or Atlanta, but probably not so much in NYC or SF. I have no data to back this up, though.

June 2010: 162
October 2010: 167
Those 5 points have made a huge difference in acceptance and $$$.

Remember, every point over 165 means money.

If I were u, follow the study tips of some of pithypike, tls1776 (I think that's his username, and LSAT.blogspot - Steve Shwartz).

Also, the Cambridge LR by type and LR Most Difficult did wonders for me.

My achilles heel was the LG. I tried everything. LG Bible, ACE the LG, still missed 6!!!

Also, I found the LR by ExamKrackers to be helpful.

Good luck!

I can jump pretty high, but I usually practice on carpet.

I'm a slightly overweight white guy who hasn't played sports in a few years and who likes to smoke cigarettes and drink beer. So I can't jump very high.

I did improve my LSAT score 6 points though on a retake.
