While I don’t want to give false hope to those of you struggling with LSAT scores in the 130s and low 140s, I do want to give you a little encouragement. I’ve found that, if you have LSAT scores in the mid-140′s (or sometimes the low 140′s) or above, I have had success helping applicants fulfill their law school admission goals.
For example, one of my clients (141 = high score) has already been admitted to 2 ABA law schools and is on the wait list at a top 25 school. (She applied 2 years before with the same score and didn’t get in anywhere). I’m not kidding or lying, and she has not saved the universe or overcome paralysis. It is absolutely possible. Please read these posts from applicants with low LSAT scores who reached their law school goals.
Another client with a 142 and an arrest record to explain was admitted to her first choice law school. Yet another, a nontraditional applicant with a 143, got into 5 ABA law schools at last count. And, if you need encouragement to retake the LSAT here are some examples to fuel the fire: W.H., a client, rose his score from a 142 to a 151. K.P. brought hers up from a 144 to a 150.
What did these applicants do that made a difference? They made sure to give the law schools a lot of reasons why they are more than just their numbers. Their applications played to their strengths. None of these people are superheros. You could be one of them.
