5 Reasons Not to be Bummed About a Low LSAT Score

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) has become an essential exam to get admission into law schools. Scores range from 120-180 and to get a chance to enroll in most of the top law schools, one should at least score a 160. Students who score in the range of 120-150 may panic when they see their low score, but there is no need to worry as these scores can get better with proper planning and LSAT tutoring. Remember that this test can be retaken as it occurs four times a year in February, June, September or October, and December.

Events change, but the role of music continues on.
