Why do people on here just assume that anyone can get 170+

i know hard work can get you far, but how far really? If someone is dumb, then they're dumb, why tell them that a 170+ is possible for everyone and their grandma?

Just my 2 cents
This is the REAL world, not legally blonde

As for me, I'm getting a 175+

It's not possible for everyone to get over a 170. But if it's not possible for someone to break 170, they shouldn't go to law school.

That is like saying that if someone can't break 1300 on the SAT, they should not go to college. Here I am with a near 4.0. The LSAT is NOT a good indicator of how a person will do in school. Neither was the SAT or any standardized test.

terrible analogy. it has more to do with the type of school you'll get into than how you'll fare

it is a general rule that a sub 170 won't likely net great options. Bils is obviously one exception

My lowest score is a 176. If you can't get a 180 then you are DUMB.
