Need some feedback

Postby ChipsAllIn » Fri Oct 05, 2012 3:25 pm

I got interested about the prospect of attending law school about two years ago. After attempting the LSAT I scored 132 without considerable effort. I need some help in the form of some constructive feedback given my profile.

1. LSAC converted my foreign bachelors degree to a high B stating it is above average. I called them recently to find out what range does that represent in terms of US GPA. They advised me to reach out to admissions office of the school.

2. I realize that I would definitely have to retake the LSAT.

3. As for some soft factors I am a political refugee.

I'm 32 now, would it be too late to join the legal market and an uphill task going up against considerably younger applicant pool.

You need to tack on about 35 more points on the LSAT before you should even begin to seriously consider attending law school.

Being an older applicant isn't your problem, there's no disadvantage there. A 132, however, is a disadvantage.
