Is a 151 on the LSAT a bad score?
Not really, you need a 179 to get into Harvard. But since you are asking if this is a good score, I assume you havent actually taken the test yet. But good luck with law school.
I think you will be just fine.
Please see the related links below for a direct link to the Law School Admission Council's official guide to law schools, which can be sorted using filters for undergraduate GPA and LSAT score to help you determine at which schools you might be accepted.
A LSAT score of 129 will allow you to possibly be admitted into a tier 3 law school. The average LSAT score is 150.
A passing score for the LSAT is anywhere from a 120 to 180. The LSAT is test that one must take in order to go to law school.
LSAT scores are not a matter of public record.
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.
There are many organizations that provide LSAT prep classes. Study the LSAT books and take practice exams.
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.
Unfortunately, a 143 is a bad score. I got a 147. I applied to about 20 schools and only got accepted to one. The only reason I got accepted there was because my brother had attended. Your best bet would be to put the time and energy into studying for the LSAT and take it again. If you do well enough you might even get a scholarship somewhere. I doubt that any ABA approved school… Read More

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.
The LSAT median is a 162. It also depends on your GPA. If you have a 3.5 GPA and a 162 on the LSATs you should be accepted

You can get into a law school with a lower admissions standard, but such schools generally have higher rates of attrition. You should seriously consider if you have what it takes to get through law school. If you worked very hard for your grade point and LSAT score, you might really struggle in law school. Schools use those numbers because they are relatively accurate predictors of academic success and bar passage.
The highest possible score is a 180. If you can score above a 160 on the exam, you can get into MOST great schools. A 170 score CAN get you into the BEST schools, but certainly, is no guarantee of admission. Best of luck.

The Law School Admissions Test is taken before applying to law school. The LSAT score and college grades are the primary measurements used by law schools for determining who they will accept.

Search online for law school rankings. Find the listing for the school that you want to attend and look at the LSAT range, which will be the range from the 25th to 75th percentile of the school's last entering class. You will probably need to score in or above this range in order to be accepted.
LSAT range (25 to 75 percentile): 169 to 175. If you have a 169 you probably need very good grades and otherwise a competitive admissions packet.
To be concidered for admission into the top 70 percentile of NYU Law, you must have a score of 164 or higher (according to 2010 statistics)

The two primary variables used by law schools in evaluating candidates are the student's LSAT score and undergraduate GPA. The size of the school is irrelevant, except to the extent that the law school's admissions committee considers the difficulty of that school's academic curriculum, relative to other schools. Further, the candidate's LSAT score is arguably the "great equalizer", in terms of school variability among all candidates. A student from an average undergraduate school, with a… Read More

It depends on the school, but generally, you need a bachelor's degree in any subject, and you need to take the LSAT. The grades you get in college, and your score on the LSAT, will largely determine what law schools you're able to get into.
Realistically, you are limited to applying at the 4th tier law schools.
Depends on the school. Research which law schools you want to go to and what average scores they take.
Most law schools merely require an LSAT score, and a college degree.
In the US you need to have a bachelor's degree for almost all schools. Most also require you take and get a good score on the LSAT.

No particular undergraduate course of study is required for admission into law school. The important issues are that you have excellent grades and score well on the LSAT.
Not really a bad score but its necessary that you must have a few denials.
There is no ACT score you must have to be a lawyer. An ACT score is what is needed to get into most colleges, but students who want to be lawyers need to go to law school. This is something they do after four years at a college or university. When you apply to law school, you take a test called the LSAT. This is required for law school admissions.
