Are you planning to stay in Texas?


Eh...maybe? UT is really the only Texas school that I'm interested in. I love Austin, but I'd be afraid of going to law school there because I feel like I'd be distracted all the time.

How about you?


I agree 100% haha

I am in a different situation. My company is paying for my Law School, so I have to still work. I will be attending a Houston school.

My take was 2-3 points lower than my average because I fucked up a game but it wasn't devastatingly low or anything.

Nothing you can do about it now. I was talking to my sister and she was like "what if you did way worse than you've ever done and you end up with like a 160" and I told her that would be pretty much the same as getting a 170 since I'll be retaking either way. A bad score isn't the end of the world.

But I REALLY don't want to retake & don't feel like I can handle the stress again. Ugh if I bombed I'm gonna hate myself

My first test was lower than my diagnostic PT and about 18 lower than my average.

The proctor should've been flogged and quartered for making flagrant, intentionally disruptive noises throughout the first 3 sections.

Half of the testers that were in my section that day showed up with me in February at another location to retake because of the same reason / evil proctor

2nd time took under normal testing conditions and hit right at my PT average


omg pls do not inject this dark magic ITT

Honestly ignore the insecure feelings. I convinced myself I horribly misbubbled and got a 162 or something. Thankfully it didn't pan out that way.

What I think is pretty incredible is that in law school we'll be able to recognize each other because we're gonna be using the word "blasted"

It's like a super secret club password IRL

In each section, my proctor kept saying "5 minutes remaining" at the 6 minute mark. Each time I thought we were going to have a 34 minutes. It really messed me up cause I felt like I had 4 minutes left and not 5. I'm afraid I rushed it toward the end of my first LR.

If you did bomb, take a few weeks off completely - one day you will wake up so pissed off at yourself for leaving even one point on the table the stress of retaking will fade into fury and obsession for hitting your pt on test day

If a prof busts out the socratic method and some sad soul looks like a moron as a result, I'm so yelling "BLASTED" at the top of my lungs.

I looked at studying and retaking for the past year like this: when else in my life will I earn 150K+ for studying and playing logic games??

Your studying for this exam and the $$$ from that one score is the same as a salary IMO

Before getting to discussion of who may end up at the same school, I'm curious as to how many of us ITT will actually end up matriculating in Fall 2016

I said the exact same thing. I was dead set on taking it once, but here I am. If you want to get into a really good law school (and I think we all do) and your score is lower than you wanted, your perspective changes.

I'm really hoping to in 2016. Will heavily depend on my score. If I have to retake it won't be til at least Dec but might be Feb, so I might push to 2017. 2017 would also be better for me financially, so we'll see.
