I have been a teacher for four years and looking for a career change in law. I'm such a hard worker, but I am super worried about my 144 lsat. I'm currently waiting for my new score and hopefully it is much better. Does anyone have any thoughts about my situation. I have a 3.85 for my bachelor's and master's, four years work experience but low lsat. Any chance? I am only applying to John Marshall Atlanta and Georgia State because I don't want to leave Atlanta. Thanks for any help someone can give.
I know how you feel, I got an even worse score then you. Im not sure if youll get into those two schools, check the chiasu calculator to see your chances. I have a very good GPA like you but my LSAT is low as well, a lot lower then yours too and hope I did good as you did on the second time too I just took it in Dec again. If you deffinitly want to get in somewhere you have a for sure shot at Cooley and maybe UDM and a few others, but you dont want to leave Atlanta so I am unsure, you may have a good shot at John Marshall, Ill say a prayer for you.
im not sure how well i did, If i score 10-15 points higher ill be more than happy, last time i thought i did well which i was wrong lol so I dont want to say how i did this time, hopefully better
the first time i took the online princeton review course and i wont lie i didnt put much effort into it because back then I did not realize the importance of the LSAT, this time I just studied using books since I was unable to take a class because of my medical condition and whats been going on lately, but if I have to take it a third time in Feb I am going to take blackstone which I heard is good in my area.
Yeah, the 144 was a big sting. I actually got a 137 the first time (HORRIBLE) and walked out knowing that I should have canceled my score, but I didn't. I retook the test in September and got the 144. Still a poor score, but hopefully I'll get in somewhere! What is the reputation of John Marshall in Atlanta? Good school or a joke? Any input would be appreciated! Thanks--best of luck if you decide to retake!
hey dont feel bad I got a 134 my first time lol, and I dont know many people who can say that since most 95% is higher than that, it doesnt matter where u get in, as long as you do good your first year you can transfer out, and like many lawyers told me, once you pass the bar no one cares where you went to school, trust me, the LSAT is overrated and has NOTHING to do with law school, if it werent for my medical condition, I would be in law school right now but it caused me to leave the conditional program after passing one class, just believe in urself and you can do it.
yea it is true, thats why many people choose to go to cooley or such other schools, do well in their first year, and transfer out
I'm sure you did much better the second time around.
My advice to you: you have a really good GPA. Try focusing on schools where your GPA is in their top 25% but your LSAT is in their bottom 50%.
Just wondering how the application process was going for you! Have you gotten your apps in yet or heard back from anyone?
Did you get your December LSAT score back? How did you do?
