152 3.19

Postby pmaslanka89 » Tue Nov 06, 2012 12:03 pm

I am a male and I have taken the lsat 3 times. I got a 141 when I didnt study, a 146 when I studied a little, and a 152 when I took the whole Summer off to study. I was scoring in the high 150s low 160s so I do not know WTF happened on test day and how I got a horrible 152. With that being said what schools should I apply to?

I am a year and a half out of college. I did an AmeriCorps program and work experience from my current job

Almost.... TCR is more likely take a little time off and get some good WE until you can in fact retake. Then, spend some of the $$ you make in those years getting some serious study help.

Depending on where you are from and what your goals are, there MAY be a handful of schools that will take you now that are worth attending but you would be attending at sticker so I would still say the above idea is a better route.

There may be a Master's in Education in your future.

Why law school ? Have you considered taking the GMAT or the GRE or do you already have a political job lined up that requires a JD ? I know that my comments are a bit harsh, but your numbers (141,146 & 152/3.19) combined with admitted laziness suggest that law, or at least law school, may not be the most suitable path for you.

I would consider a Master's program in something. Then maybe you can think about going to law school then.

If you're adamant about law school, maybe part time could be an option for you?

I am leaning towards a retake. It wouldn't be till next October. If I have a 160 or higher then I know that I will get into all the schools I want, and with money. I am a shoe-in for the Miami Scholars program at UM, but I have to score a 160 or higher (I have some connections within the program, and I did a public service program). What prep test classes do you recommend?

I took Kaplan but I didn't feel like it helped much. I only got results on PT's from endless practice and repetition. I have heard good things about Test Masters but I am worried that it will be as little help as Kaplan was to me. Honestly I'm hesitant to retake and possibly be discouraged once more. However, I didn't feel my poor score was down to nerves on test day. I've scored high before and I treat the PT's to real conditions as much as possible.

In the meantime, I am considering the GRE for a masters. But if nothing pans out then retaking the law exam again next Fall is looking likely another possibility.

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

Go to the LSAT section of this forum. LOTS of help there.
