What law schools accept an LSAT of 145 and 3.69 GPA?

An LSAT score of 145 basically knocks you out of the first three tiers of law schools. So you would be looking at fourth tier, local law schools.

Does the law require a witness in murder trial to testify?

If you mean in the United States, there's an awful lot they CAN do to push you into testifying in a case like that -- assuming you mean that you're being subpoenaed by the District Attorney's Office to testify for the Prosecution. However, if you are being put under pressure to testify FOR the defendant as a witness for the Defense, you will have a far greater chance of refusing to testify.

What is the highest you can score on the LSAT?

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.

What LSAT score do you need to be accepted into Harvard School of Law?

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.

How do you score high on the LSAT?

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:

What LSAT score is needed to get into certain law schools?

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.

Undergraduate GPA of only 2.5 can you get into law school?

You can get into a law school with a 2.5 GPA -- it just won't be a top-noch law school, even if you get a very high LSAT score. Since the competition is so stringent at the top law schools, they get thousands of applications for approximately 200-300 seats and there are enough applicants with very high LSAT's and very high GPA's. I scored the 90th percentile on the LSAT and had a 3.6 GPA from a very respectable University, and the best I made was a top-20 law school (was rejected from all top-10 law schools I applied to).

Answeri would try to raise the GPA to around a 3.5..usually schools have a cut-off GPA that you must have in order to get in. the only other way i can think of is that a lot of schools also like to see some form of experience related to the subject before they accept you. perhaps interning as an assistant or something in a law firm will aid you in your application.

I disagree, you do not have to have a GPA that high. It can only help but it is definitely not a requirement. The number one thing that you can do to get into law school is to have a high score on your Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). If you score between a 160-180 on your LSAT then you will not have any trouble getting into law school. Remember that there are a lot of great law schools out there, if you score well on your LSAT then you will be able to attend one of them regardless of your low GPA

Does your undergraduate school attended matter for law school admissions or is it all about your GPA and LSAT?

Essentially you have asked two questions. First you ask whether the undergraduate school that you attend matters for law school admissions. The short answer is yes. The degree to which it matters, however, depends upon a great number of factors (e.g. relative prestige of the potential aw school, relative prestige of the undergraduate institution). All else being equal, a 3.0 at Harvard will get you into more law schools than will a 3.0 at Arizona State University. This question requires a case-by-case answer. Sorry.

The second question is whether admissions is all about GPA and LSAT? This question doesn't have a definite answer either, but is more answerable than the first. When your test score and GPA information are relayed to potential law schools, most of them plug the numbers into a formula that results in your being assigned a particular score (which of course will be used to rank your application based on probability of admission without consideration of soft factors). Each school will use a formula that weights GPA and LSAT score to a different degree (relative to each other). For example, school A might multiply your GPA by a factor of 10, but only multiply your LSAT score by a multiple of 5, while school B might multiply your GPA by a factor of 5, but multiply your LSAT score by a factor of 10. There is a list somewhere on line that gives approximations of these, but I can't remember where it is. In any case, if you haven't done so, proceed to http://officialguide.lsac.org/UGPASearch/Search3.aspx?SidString= and plug in your current numbers.

Some additional info that I received from a visit at UNC CH helps answer your question. I actually asked the same question while I was there and the dean's answer was pretty much: "We do not look that much into where you went to undergrad at. People have many different reasons for attending the schools they did. For instance some people just may not have been able to afford a different school, they may have needed to stay near by their home town for family problems, or their specific degree was better suited for them at their undergrad school." So if that view is taken at Unc school of law I'm pretty sure it is standardized.

The two main factors in your application are your GPA and LSAT. Your GPA is mainly an indicator of how well you did compared to your fellow students at your school and the lsat is a general "how well did you do compared to other prospective law students on a standardized level." Meaning the lsat conforms all of the applicants to the same scale rather than just comparing how well you did at your school since a student from Harvard who gets a 3.0 is probably more intelligent than a student from ECU who got a 3.5. Does that make sense? Or another example which the Dean also referred to was an applicant from Westpoint was applying and he had a GPA of 2.6. His initial reaction was that the student was an idiot but he checked into the average GPAs of the other students and found that the student was actually alot higher than his fellow students. So it all depends on the school you plan on attending but I would say that if you keep your GPA above a 3.4 and an LSAT above 158, you will have a good shot at getting into any state school unless its a top 20 school such as UC Berkley.

The other factors are the personal statement, academic resume, and addendum. The way I understand it is the personal statement and academic resumes are pretty much tie breakers and the addendum is just a complation of reasons your grades or lsat scores are low and/or your criminal background explanation. The way my LSAT prep book put it is when the schools get the apps, they divide them into three piles once the GPA and LSAT scores are reviewed. The three stacks are definatly getting in, may get in, and definatly not getting in. If there is any room after the first stack, they go through the second stack looking for the best applicants based on their scores and variable qualifications.

A website that you can go to and put your LSAT and GPA in and get a list of schools that meet your qualifications is:

What is a good score on the LSAT test?

It all depends on your target law school. For example, if you want to get into a Tier 4 or Tier 3 school, then scoring in the 150s would be a good score. If you want to get into the Tier 2, however, then you would have to get a much higher score than a 150. And the score needs to get higher as you continue all the way up to the T14. Anything 165+ will open a lot of doors for you.

Is a 143 on the LSAT a bad score?

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 would accept someone with a 143.

How hard is the LSAT?

The LSAT is very difficult, but it is manageable. The reason for its difficulty is that formal education does not teach you how to answer the questions on the LSAT. The LSAT is intended to test the logical reasoning and writing skills of the test taker. I recommend spending significant amounts of time preparing for the test using Prep Test Courses. These courses will assist you in answering the types of questions normally asked on the LSAT. Remember, the LSAT, like the entirety of Law School, is a competition. Any advantage you can give yourself, to give you an edge over the competition is completely advisable. I promise, your competition will be taking these courses.

What is the lowest LSAT one can have to go to law school?

Some people believe that anything less than 145 is too low for acceptance into law school and that you would most likely need to be over 152 to broaden your school choice. However, some schools accept scores even lower than 145 depending on other factors including your undergraduate GPA and past experiences - I know of people who were accepted with scores in the low 130s. It depends on the school's average LSAT scores and the overall strength of the rest of your application.
