If you really were studying your ass off and taking timed PTs under strict conditions then here would be no "not clicking" going on. If it was text anxiety that's another thing, but the end result is the same: retake. You are capable of a way better score that'll get you a (probable) full ride where you want to go.


I disagree with this. Anyone can have a rough day regardless of how much they may have studied and taken practice tests under real conditions. There are a multitude of reasons the test may not have clicked and none of them may have to do with preparation.

OP, I would retake for more options. You could try for February, but if I were you, I'd probably try to get a job and retake in June or October. As others have said, if you want UT Austin, a higher score will get you a full ride (maybe 169+). The middle of your PT range makes you competitive at HYS and would give you lots of excellent scholarship options elsewhere.


I think the point was that it had nothing to do with the test not clicking. Instead, the OP had an off day based on all prior evidence, and therefore needs to retake.

OP, you have a rare opportunity to control your destiny like few others, in that not a single school in the country is off-limits. Take that opportunity seriously, retake and enjoy the rarified air of HYS or T14 likely for free. It's a much better place to be than you are at now with your current LSAT.

Yeah, OP's softs really are just indicative of a rich kid. He studied abroad at the London School of Economics. How is this a soft? Name dropping LOR's also aren't such a boost, because they are not indicative of being a student. If you have a 4.13, there are likely professors from Rice whose input is much more valuable than a connection through your dad. Also, there is no way at 22, your time is so important you can't be bothered to go from having a 40% to an 80% chance of doing what you want for your career by attending HYS. Going to UT by itself won't lock in anything, and if you can't be bothered to retake the LSAT, I don't know how you wouldn't be able to be bothered to do the work needed to do well enough in law school to make your dreams a reality.

Did you get accepted and won a scholarship to the LSE? Did you win multiple high dollar MERIT scholarships? I didn't get a penny from Rice, thank you very much. I would like to see any of you out there maintain my GPA at a state school, let alone Rice. I never asked any of you "experts" about retaking, I asked about my chances combining my GPA and LSAT scores, nothing else. A rich kid, I wish. My father served over 20 years in the military and saved for my siblings education. Yes I have zero college debt right now, but it was because of my parents hard work not a government grant or loan. I am considering retaking and working for a year, I always have been. Again, that wasn't the frigging question!!! I am listening to advise from hiring consultants from major Houston law firms and O&G companies, not poster from this site. For those who genuinely tried to help, thank you. For those who have nothing better to do than ridicule or belittle, kiss my ass.

So if you're so smart and driven, retake to get a better score. Chill out, man. If your plan was just to post up on a site, and ask for confirmation you're a special snowflake, you should have said that. You should have said, "Don't tell me about my prospects. Tell me I'm special. I am special, right? Say I'm Special." This way people like me who would post objective analysis to give you the most constructive feedback possible would not have chimed in trying to help you. Your post was misleading, because it didn't specify you did not want constructive feedback, but just wanted to be told you're great. What you're going to find in this process is almost everyone at a top law school is smart, has had many cool achievements and that none of these things are sufficient. Showing off about your achievements before 22 unless you won a gold medal is a sign of complacency. The idea that going to the LSE makes the LSAT or your 1L grades less relevant is untrue. You did very well in college, congrats. I assure you that law school is much more competitive, and that your 4.13 won't get you any further than applying to law school. With your self-righteousness and sense of entitlement, you of all people need to go to HYS so your douchebaggery will be forgiven.

Bro, all the best Houston law firms are telling him not to retake so he can grace them with his presence sooner. Word through the grapevine is both Mr. Baker and Mr. Botts of Baker Botts skipped a trial yesterday so they could call OP, and make sure he was starting right away. They even stopped the clocks at 4:13 PM, the time of the call and plan to keep all clocks in the building locked into 4:13 PM from now on as a commemoration to OP's scholarship to the LSE. It was national Jetdriver 69 day. Not to be outdone, Bracewell Giuliani is sending all of its partners out next Christmas to jerk off Jetdriver 69 in what is anticipated to be the first white Christmas in Houston in quite sometime.

Fishy, fish, fish. Got you all hooked. I didn't even go to college and definitely not going to law school. I wouldn't even consider living in a shit state like Texas anyway. Do you really think a 4.13 GPA would only get a 1.62 LSAT? Didn't that ring a bell? You are all not as smart as you think. I really enjoyed the conversations, now on to another web site under a different made up name to stir things up. LOL! :twisted:

Lol @ thinking this qualifies as "stirring things up" on TLS. Thread didn't even make it to a third page.

I'm sure you lead a very fulfilling life. You still seemed to take my comment very personally so I don't buy it. This should go to showing the general maturity of those who refuse to retake a silly test for what could be worth millions of dollars, and how crazy it is that in the end those who did things right will be liable for their foolishness in their yearly income taxes.

This was pretty weak as a flame attempt. You absolutely had TLS giving you quality advice (hence on the hook), but you immediately gave up on goading us into group anger. If you had just been needlessly combative to the quality advice and thrown around a smack of special snowflake, a smear of egomaniacal ignorance and topped it off with abject logic fails, this thread probably could've continued for a few more pages. You gave up too early.

BTW, there are totally real people out there like you, so I wouldn't consider it quite as unbelievable as you make it sound (4+ GPA/15x-low 16x LSAT with special snowflake syndrome fogging up their rational thought). So thank you for providing that poor misinformed soul a template for the advice they will also expect to get.

The Q is how and why would someone who never went to college know so much about the admissions process? That's either really sad or really fishy.

Additionally, the presumption that the retake sentiment stinks of elitism and is combative is very unfortunate. I know at Kaplan there was a sentiment that students should ignore TLS, because the posters were cruel and lacked social skills. In actuality, this was likely self-serving as telling students that going to law school with a 155 was likely career suicide would threaten the whole business model.
