Hey, so I have a 3.1 at a top 20 undergrad university with known grade-deflation. I have taken a course for the LSAT but didn't put a lot of effort in (had a busy semester) and therefore got a 148 as my highest score from the course. I want to get around a 165 for my LSATs when I take them in October because I didn't feel ready for the June one. What tier or any recommendations for different law schools that I should be considering?
Any help is deeply appreciated!
There are still undergrad institutions with grade-deflation? But anyway, people here can't really give you a good list of options until you have an LSAT score and some more information. Basically, the responses you're going to get are "the LSAT is a learnable exam, so take it seriously and aim for the 170's," "Be debt averse, especially outside of the T-14" and "adcomms won't care so much that your undergrad was a top-20, they'll still ding you for your 3.1." So basically, if you haven't graduated, get straight A's from here on out, devote as much time as needed to get your LSAT score as high as possible, and think about taking some time off for work experience and putting more distance between you and your UGPA.
