    I was wondering if I should apply to top five law schools…I just got my LSAT score and it was a 174! Woo hoo! I have a 3.56 GPA. Does this mean if I submit my application to top five schools I will be put into a “we’ll think about it” category? Just wondering.

    Thanks,
    Cason

    P.S. Is University of Chicago a possibility? I have four years of public service (high school English teacher) work experience also.

    Thank you so much…I originally thought the e-mail notification of my score was a sick joke from a friend!

    How did I prepare? I studied for about three months straight, taking real tests all the way through, no breaks, timed, the works…

    It really became very natural. I took a test every other day. And I started to enjoy taking the tests–I almost miss the studying–well, maybe not…

    That’s really it…I didn’t pay for a prep course or anything, but I did raise my score from the 161-163 range to a 174!!!!! And I did spend at least $300 on testing materials…

    I had the most trouble with reading comp…I’m a slow reader…I tended to read too much for detail and had to really watch myself there. I summarized each paragraph with a couple of notes after reading each paragraph–this really helped with overall structure questions and helped me locate details a lot easier.

    I think all you really have to do is just pay attention to every single word written-ha! Easier said than done.

    Well, once again, thanks! I am just glad that working my ASS OFF paid off!

    Good luck!

    Congratulations Cason!!!

    I appreciate the advice on LSAT prep and I wish you all the best. If I were you I’d apply to some top 5 law schools. Why not? Go for it! [;)]
