I took a more relaxed approach to studying and increased my score by 7 points from September.

It is still a score most of you would look at and start shouting "Re-take!", but I'm in the very fortunate position to have an offer in hand from my current BL firm. I'm a Corporate Paralegal and the deal is that I have a guaranteed job as an Associate waiting for me provided that I enroll in a part-time program, graduate, and pass the bar exam for the state to which I'll be moving.

My September write was an abysmal mess, as I went through a terrible family issue the night before that rocked me to my core.

When I opened my email tonight, I broke down in tears of joy. Barring something egregious on my application, I'm getting into the PT program to which I applied and I can go through law school knowing that I have a BigLaw job waiting for me on the other end.

To all of you: It's all about keeping things in perspective. Do what is right and best for you.

:D

Don't worry law schools tend to care only about your best score! 170 is a great score! :)

163, 8 point jump. I know most of you would be disappointed but I am thrilled! Is there a proper way to write an e-mail basically saying:

Dear University of __________,

I previously applied to your law school and asked you to hold my file until I received my new score. I am pleased to let you know that I received a 163 on the February 2015 LSAT. I look forward to hearing from your school!

Thanks and best regards,

Congrats that's wonderful! Law school will be relatively stress free since you already have a job waiting for you! ^_^
