This really depends on what your goals are, tbh.Operabella wrote: ↑Fri Sep 10, 2021 11:05 amI need some advice, please. I've taken the lsat x4 times thus far and can't seem to break a 160. I'm definitely improving (with minimal effort), but I just landed on a 156 and am trying to decide if I want to try again one last time before calling it. What would you do? Thank you!
I think a 155-160 will get you into a T1/T2 in a respected city/state school (think UTk if you are from TN, Syracuse, Buffalo, Kentucky, Louisville, Ole Miss, New Mexico, Oklahoma, ND, SD, etc.) if you are from one of those states, and totally fine practicing in that state/city for the foreseeable future- really any T1- half the T3 are fine, as long as you can go on a decent scholarship. So, go to the state school in the state you want to practice.
If your goals are biglaw in Los Angeles, NYC, Atlanta, etc., than you'll need to retake and aim for a different caliber of schools. The criteria will be the same if you are aiming for top PI goals as well. State ADAs, PDs, AGAs etc., don't need to be Vandy or Cornell grads, but most AUSAs and ACLU folks are.
Best of luck.
