I will be taking the LSAT in November. I'd like to ask what score I would need to be competitive for these programs and competitive for a scholarship as well. I took one practice LSAT blind with no preparation and scored 165. I'm hoping six months of 2 hour study sessions per day will be enough to significantly boost my score. From what I understand, the LSAT is relies on many strategies that can be learned to better prep.
Here are my stats:
Applying regular decsion
Age: 32 - married with children.
Undergrad - NYU as non-traditional student
Degree: BS Information Systems Management
Applying as URM - half mexican, half middle eastern
Other possible hooks: Developed severe epilepsy during college leading to multiple seizures per day at one point. I worked full time and attended school full-time during the peak. I'm in better health now.
Work experience: 10 years total in finance/IT startup environments. Own a small consulting firm managing 4 associates.
Volunteer: My company does pro bono work for local non profits
Plan to focus on cybersecurity and privacy laws which I feel are a natural progression from working on IT security for a decade.
