Hello all, I've been lurking around here for years. Never posted. I'm an African American male with a pretty good LSAC GPA (3.73) but not a perfect one by any means, so it may be hard to go where I want to go. I was wondering, what should I score on the LSAT to receive a good boost at HLS and SLS with my GPA?

Thanks, and I appreciate it, big time!

Definitely take a look at this thread, http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... 4&t=195443

A solid score in the 160s should do the trick.

Seriously though, put the boost out of your mind and just work towards scoring as close to perfect as possible. You are just as capable as anyone else to score 170+.

Aim as high as you can. This is quality advice.

I agree 100%. Study for a 180. With that GPA, HYS are completely in your reach if you study diligently for the LSAT.
