I didnt intend to post stats initially, but after going through this application cycle, I wanted to encourage people who think they dont have a shot to apply. Based on Reddit threads and pretty much every law school predictor algorithm, I had almost no chance of getting into top schools, but none of those things account for your life and work experience and what you bring to the table as a person and not as a walking standardized test score. Yes, study as hard as you can and re-take if you can, but if life circumstances dont allow you that privilege (FT job/school, kids, immigration, true economic hardship, etc.), APPLY ANYWAY. You are more than an LSAT score and I've noticed there are almost no cheerleaders on law school threads encouraging people with less than ideal scores to apply. This gave me so much anxiety while I was applying and I hope to counter some of that negativity. Some schools truly do look at your application holistically. Best of luck to everyone this cycle and next, shoot as high as you can, you might be surprised where you land!
