3.6 t20ug /148 chances anywhere?

Postby lolol10 » Fri Mar 04, 2011 9:28 pm

as my lsat score reflects i have never been a strong test taker unfortunately. i will have been working for a year at a top 100 fastest growing/most successful private companies in the US. also i have worked at a law firm prior to that. any chance at me getting in anywhere good?

Unfortunately, LS admissions is a numbers game, so the importance of your work experience is infinitesimal compared to your numerical criteria. I know this is stereotypical TLS advice, but please don't waste that solid GPA and retake. How hard did you prepare for the LSAT? Do you truly feel like you maxed out your potential or that you have room for improvement? The LSAT is totally learnable!

If you have trouble performing well under extreme stress why the hell would you want to be a lawyer?

it's common knowledge that in law school grades are determined by a single, long ass exam. If I were you, I'd get some professional help with that "psychological struggle" of exam taking, study to retake the lsat, then see what happens.
