Practice, practice, practice. Here are some tips that will put you on the fast track to a top score:

1. Take it early.

If possible, take the LSAT in October or February of your junior year. This allows you to do the bulk of your studying over the summer or winter break at a more leisurely pace. You want to ensure that studying for the LSAT will not detract from your junior-year grades. Too many students wait to take the LSAT until the October or December of their senior year. However, since law school applications are reviewed and decided upon soon after they're submitted, early applicants face less competition. By taking the LSAT earlier, you avoid the scrutiny that those taking it in the 11th hour will face.

2. Learn some basic logic.

Students often balk at the idea of memorizing lists of logic laws. However, there are only a few logical relationships that you really need to know for the LSAT - the contrapositive, the inverse, and the converse. Commit them to memory, and you'll start noticing them throughout the Logic Games and Logical Reasoning sections. More tips are available here:

The usual LSAT is at least 167+. It is possible to get accepted with a lower LSAT score, but that usually is only in cases where the applicant has one hell of a background story to make up for the low score.

One of the most important standardized tests a student will ever take is the LSAT. If a student wants to take the LSAT, then he or she should be sure to get tutoring of some sort. Home tutoring can be helpful for the student who wants to apply to Ivy League schools and achieve a very high score.

You first have to graduate from college with a high grade point average. Then you have to take the Law School Admission Test or LSAT. You need to score at least 160 on the LSAT and have a GPA of 3.5 to get admitted to most law schools. Click on the link below for more information on the LSAT

Check law school rankings, which will show you the 25-75% range for a particular school. I'd work on getting that LSAT score up, though. A 3.85 GPA generally correlates with a higher LSAT score. None that will actually get you a job as a lawyer when you graduate. Unless you want to go to law school for fun, study hard and retake the LSAT.

Both the scores of the LSAT and your academic record go into an acceptance to a law school. The decision on how much the LSAT applies to acceptance depends on the school.

High school grades are generally not considered in the law school admissions process. Excellent undergraduate grades are required, along with a high LSAT score.

There are no prerequisite courses or subjects for admission into law school. Excellent undergraduate marks and a high LSAT score are the major hurdles.

Your high school grades have little effect on admission to law school. They will be looking at your college grades. That and your LSAT score will determine your acceptance.

There are no high school courses that will prepare you for law school. You must first get a bachelors degree, take the law school admissions test (LSAT) and then you can apply to law school. Just make sure you get good grades in college and a high score on the LSAT. Then you shouldn't have a problem.

In the UK, you can -- but in the US college is required before you are eligible to enter law school. You can! only if you pass with your really high score on your LSAT test, if you get 180 which is the highest score even Harvard University will accept you.

Like most law schools, there is no cut-off score. They look at the application as a whole. Theres always someone with low LSAT scores with another outstanding factor that creates a balance.
