Hurt to Apply?

Postby kennes913 » Sun Jan 16, 2011 8:59 pm

I have a low LSAT and solid GPA. Does anyone know if it would hurt to still apply late this cycle even though i'm going to retake my LSAT in June?

Unless you have fee waivers or some money to throw away (and aren't there more fun ways to throw away money?), it seems like it would be in your best interest to stick with a retake in June and applying in next years cycle.

Depends on your LSAT and where you're applying. If you just want to get into a school, then apply, but if you have your sights set on a reach or schollys, then retake wait. A solid GPA is good, but LSATs matter the most.
