“Without Ann Levine’s help, I would not have had such a positive outcome. Although I was always a good student in college, my LSAT score of 153 fell far below my expectations. I didn’t think I would get into any law school, however, I ended up getting into seven very well-reputed schools and waitlisted from tier 1 law schools that were definitely out of my LSAT range. This was due to Ann’s tremendous help in putting together an application package that stood out while incorporating the essence of who I am and my experiences.” – K.C. (Attending Rutgers Law School)
Why is your LSAT score considered the single most important aspect of your law school application? Because the LSAT is the most objective criterion available for law schools to separate applicants from one another. The purpose of the LSAT is to level set applicants by having them all take the same test. The LSAT tests for skills required for success in law school and as a lawyer, such as qualitative analytical skills and reasoning skills. Statistics show it is the best indicator of who will succeed in law school and on the Bar Exam.
Yet, each school has a range of LSAT scores that they commonly accept. And law schools accept students on the bottom of their LSAT range if they have other aspects of their application that help them shine. But since the LSAT is so important, often the question is, “Should I retake the LSAT?” There are benefits and risks to taking the LSAT more than once.
