Ditto - I dream of this from a previous 163. Literally, I dream of it. Twice this week.

Could you share a "How I Scored a 180"?

Congratulations!

Why do you need law school when you can have a career teaching at PowerScore, Test Masters, Princeton Review or Manhattan ?

Hoping this was sarcasm.

Humor. No way that a single 180 will secure all of those teaching positions in this economy !

P.S. That too was intended to be humorous.

I can't fathom your not getting your pick of the T14, except YS (HLS seems to be slightly less predictable with JR now, but I think your chances there are about as good as you can hope for). And from running a search on the 180s from 3.78-3.84 on LSN, you may be in the running for a Darrow or Butler if you put together a really good package. Absent that, you'll probably land good money at a number of places.

Basically, congrats!


I was going to say that I think OP has a good shot at any school, except maybe Yale or Stanford (need really special WE/softs for them). Although H claims to average, many people in the past have proven that they are willing to overlook a lower score sometimes.

May I ask what the poster meant by JR being unpredictable?

Tell us how you improved so much!

What was the time distance between the two scores? What did you do differently?

And for your question, just apply to T14 and wait for acceptances. What are you worrying about? You'll get fee waivers anyway. (I think)
