Maybe you'll get Davis or Boston or something because schools will want you to subsidize someone else's full ride, but your list of schools is way too ambitious and quite frankly a waste of money.

Please out these so-called safety schools. When a 150 calls a school a safety, you know it's a toilet. Law school is not a smart move unless you get your score way up.

What is your score breakdown per section?

The amount of money you must spend on law school: $0

If you truly are that bad on tests, seriously look into other paths. All your doctrinal courses are based on single 4 hour exams. The bar exam is a standardized test as well. Why would you want to set yourself up for failure?
Financially handicapping yourself for decades all for a crappy law degree is crazy.

You almost certainly won't get into any of those schools, unless maybe it's Davis or one of the Boston schools as someone said. You won't be given enough scholarship money to make attending worthwhile. Schools like Columbia, Penn, Berkeley, etc. arent worth applying to, that's just lighting money on fire. You almost certainly need to retake and score significantly higher or simply not go to law school. Only exception I can think of is if you have modest career goals (and probably a guaranteed job, like joining a family practice) and a rich benefactor paying your way.

if youve been studying for 2 years and thrown a ton of money at professional prep courses and you still can only get a 150, it may not be your path. With a 3.93, you need to get at least a mid-late 160's and you're set.

That's the non-assumed non-troll answer. There's no other way around it. You can't skip the LSAT and the truth is you aren't making T-14 with a 150

I get A's on virtually all of my essays, tests, and exams. I just do horrible on standardized tests such as the LSAT, ACT, SAT, etc.

At this point, my mind is pretty much set on law school.


If you always do horrible on standardized tests and there is no way to get over that then most likely you will never pass the bar and you will never become a lawyer and you will have wasted 3 years of your life and tons of money and have nothing to show for it.

considering it's 2 am on a sunday morning this thread is pretty bumpin

anyways op
former lsat tutor here
i've had plenty of students start in that range, that's not so unusual
but if you put in a full year of serious prep and only got to 150, that raises some red flags

did you really put in serious effort?
if so, what was the score breakdown? how many wrong on lr, lg, rc?

I can foresee myself passing the bar if I studied enough for it because it's different than the other standardized tests.

I know I want to be a lawyer, and I'm trying to get into the highest ranked law school possible at the moment to optimize my career opportunities in the future.

Please answer the question.

then whats the point of asking if youll get in? the only way to optimize is to optimize the LSAT score, which a 150 is not optimal for anyone. Many people start higher than that. Either you're a troll, law is not for you, or you're not dedicated enough because you should increase at least 10 points with a year's worth of studying alongside a prep course

I don't believe this has been asked yet. Are you a URM? Is that why you're aiming high?
