will my LSAT likely increase?

Postby Prospectivestudent13 » Mon Jun 17, 2013 7:59 pm

Yesterday I took the released 2007 LSAT and ended up with a 162. I'll be entering college in the fall I know this isn't close to what I need to get into a top law school, but I figure I'll be vastly more intelligent after 3 years of college and I'll have studied before I take it for real, but realistically what are the chances of it actually increasing? I really want to go to Harvard Law one day (if I could afford it...) so I'm hoping my score will increase by then. Do you guys think that's likely or does the score generally not vary. Sorry for such a novice question but no one in my family has gone to college let alone law school so they have no idea

162 diagnostic is a great starting point. I believe most people who end up in the 170s actually start from late 150s to 160s. My diagnostic was 157 and after 3-4 months of studying I was hitting 170s.

The LSAT is completely learnable, especially if you are getting 162 on the diag. Just keep your GPA up and you'll have a great shot at HYS.

You are an incoming freshman, get off this site and enjoy life. Get good grades, bang some fatties, and relax for 2 years before the lsat even begins to enter your brain.

I agree with what was said above. I took the same test halfway through my freshman year and scored a 154 (cold). I just took the June LSAT and was PTing around 169-172 with a few 174's. A 162 cold test is a great starting place and with enough work and time you can definitely increase it.

Truth. Remember some positions are your friend if the face doesn't cut it.

When I entered college I thought I knew that I would be a doctor... God, was I wrong. Have fun, and make good grades, worry about the rest of your life Junior year.

Wishing you the best, keep up the hard work and it should go up at least a few points.

TITFCR.

This also explains every mistake I made in UG.
