163 according to lsn


Yes, yes, I used my old USNW&R.

Sorry for insulting your new school Gotti. Wouldn't want anyone thinking their 25th is a terrible 162. 163 is in a whole other league.

oh no i didn't mean it like that, sorry! I just honestly had no idea because i couldn't find it when I was applying...didn't know how accurate LSN was since it's from like 08 or something. I was jw

Ha ha... fair enough. I'm just bitter, don't mind me. This whole process has really frayed every last nerve that I've got.

Gotti, now that you're in, you have to call BU and convince them to accept me, too. DO WHATEVER IT TAKES! :lol:

Median LSAT: 166 (range 151-173)


From their website. I am way under median so probably going to get dinged.

Beginning to be tempted to re-take for a 164/165... I'd probably be a lock at a lot of schools that have WL'd me this cycle. =/

Boston is amazing. It is like the bookstore capitol of the world!! I love it there... but with no love from the Bawwwston schools, it just isn't gonna happen I don't think. My 162 really needed to be a 163 or 164, I think.

I would totally live with the snow for Boston. Definitely NOT for Minneapolis.

the first time i took the LSAT i got a 162...applied to BU, BC, Fordham, GW and got waitlisted and rejected from them all. I retook for this cycle and got a 167. Now im in at BC, Fordham and GW (waiting on BU). Its definetely worth a retake. If nothing else, I think a persons score can increase 2 or 3 points just because they are less nervous and know the process better.


My main problem is losing time. I have absolutely no desire to go through the entire app process again, and having nothing to do after June when I graduate besides fight this economy for a part time job or something. I need to be busy - really busy... academically. I immerse myself in academics (as evidenced by my >4.00 LSAC GPA from a top public U) and even working 32-40 hours a week wouldn't cut it. Not to mention the fact that everyone in my family expects me to start LS this year (including myself).

Will probably end up going to UW or Hastings unless NU or UCLA pull me off the hold/waitlist (respectively). Debt won't really be that big of an issue for me so it's mostly a choice on geography and relative "goodness" of the programs.

Yea, that's my exact complete date, too. Their decisions process is confusing.
SIGH. I am gonna be depressed this entire weekend. The entire week hasn't been really good. Here's hoping that the next one will be better.

Aggie, a 164 in no way guarantees admittance. I guess we shall see. :?

Hah, I know it doesn't. Nothing really guarantees admittance anywhere and that's just the way it is =-/

I like purple and white.
