LSAC or degree?


I heard they're averaging this year


Is this serious, people look at degree GPAs?

No seriously, just checked last year's thread and from all the people held on TLS only 3 or 4 got accepted it seems. Sigh.

Yeah, I should've done the Feb. test but I just couldn't force myself to sign up.

I may do it just to vent. We will talk after I score a 181.

I just couldn't think about going through the LSAT again, especially with how busy this year has been.

ALSO...I keep refreshing my email hoping that Gmail just forgot to send through my JR1.... :oops:

I didn't have time to study - just like the first time I took. Actually I had less time than the first time. And I wasn't going to take another undisclosed.

I kind of want to retake it, but I know it's pointless. It would be my 4th time--even though I know I still could do much better.

Those who were held and had a JR1, what was your impression of it? Had mine the other day and it seemed very pro forma. Wondering if that bodes poorly for my chances. What do you want to do with a law degree, why HLS and do you have any questions --- lasted about 8 min. Does this match up with your experience?
