International candidate 163/3.61. Chance?

Postby risingdragon » Thu Jul 14, 2011 7:30 am

Actually that 163 is the third score. I cancelled the first and got 160 in the second.

English is not my first language hence I am not sure how would schools treat my LSAT.

I would be very happy to get into any Top 30. That is ideal, of course.

Any suggestions? Thanks a lot all the same.

Law schools will treat your score as they would any other applicant.

Check out law school predictor. It's unlikely you will get into a top 30 school, but will probably get into a T1.

ETA: be sure to get someone to edit your essay if you are not completely comfortable with English. Good luck!

No need for sarcasm, cinephile is speaking the truth.

That is not sarcasm. I sincerely said thanks for the reply and cares. Everybody including me know what my scores mean. No need to attack whoever gave the truth. But it is what it is. I would try anyway.

It's impressive you got a 163 with English being your second language.

I disagree on top 30. I think you'd get IU: B, and maybe Notre Dame/Georgia/Iowa, but no school worth sticker.

Oh okay, I just interpreted the "LOL" as sarcasm. My bad then.

No problem. I just try to relax myself by that LOL. You surely could understand how bitter it is to get a 163. I can do nothing but teasing myself to recover. Life has to move on.

Thanks a lot to your reply to my thread anyway.

I do not know. That is why I post this thread. But we have to try anyway, right?

BTW, don't be impressed, here we have tons of 168+s without English as mother language in China.
