Plan of attack?

Postby pwnyc127 » Mon Apr 22, 2013 1:43 pm

I'm taking the June LSAT and PTing 173-174 on average. This is a significant increase from my December score. I've already been accepted to a few schools and made a first deposit at 2 of them. In the event that I was to hit above 170 on June, what should I do?
A. Use the score to negotiate for a higher scholarship
B. Take a year off and re-apply next year (negative factor of this one- I'm working a low paying job right now, no immediate prospects for better employment)
C. Re-apply at Cardozo for their Spring start program (and probably get a full ride with a 170+)

It really depends which schools you've already deposited at. If they're not T14 and you can break a 170 in June, you should definitely reapply. With a 173 and a decent GPA, you should be in at a good number of the T14, some with money (again depending on that GPA though).

Edit: Definitely don't do option C, you'd be severely limiting yourself.

Overall GPA is 3.52 with a 4.0 in the last two and a half years. I deposited at Cardozo and Brooklyn.

Definitely reapply regardless. If you can hit close to your PT scores you have a shot at NYU. Even if you score moderately lower, Fordham with $$ should be an option.

If you have that GPA and you can get a 170 or above there is absolutely no way that you should go to Cardozo or Brooklyn. Reapply to the T14 with a 170+ and you'll have extraordinarily better options, many of them likely with some $ if you can get the 173-174 you've been PTing.
