3.64/155, Santa Clara or is that a reach?

Postby Androo630 » Mon Dec 28, 2009 9:58 pm

I thought I would've done a lot better in the December 2009, but I only went from a 150 to 151. I feel like I just wasted $1000+ on books, tests, and application fees. Do I have any shot at Santa Clara or is my LSAT simply too low? Please be as blunt and harsh to me as possible, I need to face reality. Thank you.

150 to 151 to 155, I wish I had took a class. Does anyone personally know someone who got into Santa Clara with those type of stats? I'm Chinese, so I am definitely not an URM. Please share your thoughts, thank you!

You are still 5 points below the 25th ... if I were in your shoes, I'd sign up for the Feb test and contact all of the schools that you are a realistic shot at based on your practice tests and inform them that you will be taking the test in Feb and ask them to wait on reviewing your file until then!

I thought schools for this cycle don't look past December?

I'm resending my university transcript. It went from a 3.61 to 3.64, will it really make a difference?

Almost all law schools take the Feb LSAT. That's what I'm doing.
