What schools to apply to? 3.8/152

Postby jcarlucci88 » Fri Nov 19, 2010 1:49 pm

What schools do I have a shot at getting accepted with my 3.8 GPA at UCF and a 152 on LSAT? I am an awful standardized test taker, but a great student.

you must.must.must. retake. study your ass off, take a class, eat, sleep, dream the lsat. a 152 is not going to get you into any school worth going to.

Edit: I really should be getting a kickback from LSAC.

I am not opposed to retaking, I already did and scored the same although I was scoring around 159 and 160 on pretests.

There's no reason you can't up your score 10 points, if not more.

No reason not to at least try a third time (or 4th/5th/6th/etc if you can get a waiver from a school).

It sounds like you're having bigger issues with nerves than ability. Take more preptests under simulated conditions (IE, a proctor other than yourself).

Thanks guys for all the helpful feedback! I think retaking it again is the best choice.
