155 LSAT, now at Berkeley

Postby shikanota » Mon Sep 12, 2016 10:23 pm

Always remember you can transfer after 1L. Yes, it's terribly hard to be in top 5% of your class at a TTT, but it can be done if you out work everyone else. That's what I did, and I got accepted to UC Berkeley as a transfer.

Just throwing it out there.

Studied a ton for lsat, had a tutor, did a class, couldn't crack it.

Congrats on the transfer. Seriously. But, you've only shown that there exists an exception to a rule. While there is some merit to working hard in law school, it definitely does not assure top 5% or top 50% grades. Law school exams/grading have an element of luck and arbitrariness built into them. I know bros/gals who chilled quite a bit during the semester and then test day comes and BANG. Some people are better geared for law school exams.

TL;DR–Don't make decisions concerning law school under expectations that you will be above median. There are hundreds of TTT horror stories for every Berkeley transfer.

According to research, your low LSAT score could mean you will have a difficult time passing the bar exam.
