Is December too late for a Splitter URM?

Postby txlawstudent » Thu Sep 30, 2010 8:27 pm

I'm scheduled for the October LSAT and am fairly certain that I will not be fully prepared come test day. I'm considering taking but cancelling my October score and retaking in December. Would this be a bad idea considering I am a splitter (3.32 GPA) or does my URM status (Mexican-American) provide me with a little leeway. I'm willing to wait another year (if it means getting into a better school) but would prefer to complete everything this year. I'm currently scoring around 163 but I'm hoping for T10+ and would like to score 170+. Is a 170+ even feasible at this point or should I just wait till next cycle. Your thoughts are appreciated.

I'm a splitter, not URM, and I'm taking the Dec test. It hurts you, but my understanding is that if you can score 3 points better on the Dec test vs the Oct test then its worth it. If you think you can score 7 points higher, I'd say its a no brainer (and those are a huge 7 points btw).
