Receiving a low LSAT score can be a devastating experience. I remember the fear I felt during the four weeks that I waited for my score to arrive. Thoughts of receiving a low score and never being able to attend law school constantly flooded my mind. I recall sitting in my car as the email with my score came through on my phone and feeling like the wind got knocked out of me as my below average score loaded on the screen. I immediately decided that law school may not be in my future and after finally working up the courage to take the exam again, my new score was only two points higher. Feeling devastated was an understatement. However, I decided to jump all in and begin applying to schools, even with my low score. I figured that there had to be some school that would have mercy on me and then, at the very least, I could transfer to a higher ranked school after my first year. Therefore, you can imagine the surprise I felt when I got accepted to a top 25 school with a hefty scholarship offer.

Therefore, I’ve outlined some of the things I did during my law school application process that I think may have helped my chances. Who knows if some of these tips may be your ticket to your dream school.
