I really just wanted to post this to give hope to all of the people like me who looked up their numbers on this site and immediately lost hope. Schools really do look at your entire application; so, if your LSAT is not that high due to any reason, that's okay. Just try and be as involved as you can and get as much experience as possible to bulk up the rest of your application. Plus, never underestimate the power of a good personal statement. Two of the acceptance letters I received had attached notes about my personal statement, so they definitely can have a lasting impact. Anyway, I hope this helps show some of you that anything can happen!


I took the September LSAT with the stomach flu and missed almost all of Section 2. Therefore, I had to take the December test. But, due to balancing school, jobs, and clubs I was unable to prepare at all and therefore did again not perform well. I was not expecting positive responses from the schools I applied to, but I still tried to make the rest of my application as strong as possible to account for that. The LSAT isn't everything :)
