Yeah, getting a 170 will drastically change things.

If you don't get a good enough score this time, try retaking after some intensive prep and applying next cycle. Maybe your class isn't right with you, maybe try self prep (TLS recommends PowerScore LG/LR Bibles). Best option if the score you get now isn't the one you want.

While the GPA is not great, it's also not bad enough to put you out of the running most places (other than HYS and probably B). Cornell is definitely still an option, with the right LSAT.

i'm thinking about not applying this cycle to get my shit together GPA-wise and perfect the LSAT. is it worth a shot though if i take the december LSAT and apply around christmastime?

Same GPA as you, right now scoring 160 on PTs (studying for a month now). I'm taking in December, but the scores don't come out until Jan 10, so you have to wait until then to apply (If I'm wrong on this someone please let me know). I'll be applying as soon as the scores come in to get into LS in 2011. Aiming for 170, GW is my main target, though obviously gonna study my ass off from now till Dec. to get the highest score I can. Realize though that applying late (in Jan) first hurts you in that it may get you knocked out of entry into some schools that you are otherwise on the admit line for (check LSN), and secondly by having scholarship money denied that you would have gotten if you'd applied a few months earlier. For lots of people its better to just hold off on LS for a year, but you gotta make your own choice on that.

No.


Then a 3.3 is inexcusable.
