Half Mexican male 2.8-9 GPA likely 155 lsat

Postby mcv123 » Sat May 19, 2012 5:28 pm

I have been studying since March. Thus far I have done 9 fully timed PTs and several individual sections of each type. Thus far I have done nothing from the 10 newest PTs but I do have them. The study plan I have been following is from lsat blog (http://lsatblog.blogspot.com/2010/10/da ... uides.html). Thus far I have an average score of 155. My last 2 tests PTB (super prep) and PT20 resulted in 148 and 151 respectively and have greatly ruined my motivation. Prior to that my scores were between 157-160. My goal is to get in to Lewis and Clark or Oregon. The only good soft I have is my plan to do AmeriCorps after graduate in June. I am pretty sure I will not reach my goal of 165. I initially hoped to get around 170 but at this point I doubt I will even get 165. I was also able to get a LSAC fee waiver, so not taking the test seems like a waste to me. With this little information could I have a chance to get in to either school or would it be better to enjoy my time over the remaining weeks of school?

How bad do you want it?!?! I know plenty of posters who went from the 140s to 165+... Stop being so down on yourself and study more. Realistically, it is not like you even have to crack 160 to get in...
