I think my decision to eat wings at 1030 was a terrible idea.

So I'm not sure what I should do.

I got a 3.65/158.

I wanted to get around a 165 but I clearly didn't do enough practice for the logic games which killed me, so I'm gonna retake again in December, BUT I'm wondering whether I should apply early at some of the schools where I'm either at, around, or above median at, like SMU/Houston/etc. in the mean time, just incase I get a similar or worse score the next time around? And then just wait until the new scores come in order to decide whether I want to take a shot at T14?

If I get into those schools now, and then retake and get a higher score, can I use those scores to leverage more scholarship $$$ or am I better off waiting until I get the second score?

I'm not a prestige whore, and really just want to get out of a decent school in my area (preferrable UT, SMU or Houston) with little or no debt.

Thanks for any advice.

3.5X/ 173 here. I posted in the chances thread but haven't gotten a lot of replies yet.

Hoping for YHS or a full ride somewhere in the T14. How are my odds?

Good luck to everyone still studying! Fingers crossed that we rock it this cycle.

AA male. The LSAT is a retake from a score in the mid 160s. GPA upward trend. I don't know if any of that matters.

Great job, HYS is definitely in the cards for you. Congrats on the great retake.

Odds seem very good. It's pretty rare for AA males to have a 3.5+ and score higher than a 170. I'd say you're pretty set. :)

It's kind of funny that I still have not received my LSAC E-mail with my score yet.

I didnt get any until like 1-2 weeks later. If you really need them now, people have been emailing schools since last night. It's worth a shot.

Hey! I got a 161 for October (first take). With a 3.8ish gpa do you think I still have a shot at t14?

I'm thinking of retaking but it'll be right around finals and I'd really like to keep my gpa where it is.

Do you guys think I need to write a Why X for every school I plan to apply to? I wrote ones for UVA and Georgetown. But don't really want to for GW.
