MA Female, LGBT, 151 LSAT/3.69 GPA

Postby Aeronomie » Tue Nov 06, 2012 11:35 am

I am signed up to take the December LSAT (ended up ill during the Oct. test, was PT'ing around 165-168). Worth it to retake so soon, and apply for this cycle once December scores are out, or take another year? Will scholarship/funding opportunities be missed or limited if I apply after the December test? Looking at T50, maybe higher.

Extras: Master's degree/Public school teacher for 3 years (eep!)/Professional musician

Thanks.

You were PTing at the 90th+ percentile but tested at the 50th? wtf happened?

If you can fix whatever went wrong by Dec, you can save this cycle with a 165+. If you need more time, then wait a cycle.

Dont apply with a 151.

I ended up with a nasty bug that morning, and could not focus on much other than keeping my breakfast down. Didn't think I did bad enough to cancel, but it was rough.

December should be fine *crosses fingers*, but I'm just worried about missing scholarship opportunities.

If you perform, youll get your money.

My stats were 3.0/167, MA male. I applied in late January with a Dec score. Im at a T20 with a 105k scholarship...

If you dont like how your cycle shakes out with the offers you get in Spring, sitting out and reapplying would be best.
