3.7 Double major/166-69 on practice tests

Postby Ziggitron » Wed Apr 03, 2013 12:25 pm

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum. :D

So, yes I haven't actually taken the LSAT yet but I'm planning on taking it (hopefully just once) in October and I've been scoring 166-169 consistently on practice tests. I know I might have a really bad day on test day but this is where I am right now.

3.7 Cumulative GPA English + Pol Sci Double major with honors (Temple University). My only softs are school clubs and one internship (I know that's not a lot). I'm a junior and plan on attending immediately after senior year (no break).

Beasley is my first choice (is it true that they are biased against Temple undergrads?). I will also apply to Villanova, Camden Rutgers, and UPenn (A man can dream, right?)

So what are my chances?

Thanks a lot :D .

You have many months until October. Don't settle for 166-169, get it up into the 170's and you really will have a shot at U Penn and money at the rest on down.

It sucks but it's true, even 50 extra hours spent studying now could mean $75,000 in savings down the road. Put in the time on the test and you won't regret it. Your practice scores aren't static and your GPA doesn't preclude you from Penn.

That's a solid GPA, and your LSAT is pretty decent. Shoot for bringing it up to a 170+ for October and you'll be golden. Even if you got a 167, you'd be selling yourself incredibly short. Temple, Villanova, and Rutgers are far beneath you. UPenn is out of your grasp if you don't improve your LSAT. Right now, you're a great candidate for Vanderbilt, USC, Texas, and other schools like that. Hell, even Cornell and Georgetown are feasible.

Study hard, and aim a little higher. Take a look at mylsn.info to learn about where you would be a fit.
