The LSAT is an exam that you have to prepare for and study wisely. This study ethic will help you very much when you enter law school. To get into a good law school you want to try and get your scores as close to 180 as you possibly can, but anything above 155 can get you into a pretty good school, be it private or state. To go to a top 14 law school, you really need to score in the 170’s and have a good GPA and letters of recommendation.
Enroll for and take the LSAT in June, so that if you have to redo it, you can take it in October and still have your applications in on time. Make sure you have your scores sent to every school you are going to apply to.
