Question... If i have a reportable LSAT score but it was substantially (20pts) lower than my average PTing, how would retaking in Feb effect my chances? Can I submit my file and inform them im retaking in Feb? How would that work?


I am doing the February applying. I wouldn't recommend if you do not have to and you can wait another year.

Anywho, after one day of aggressive emailing, I was able to snag about 6 out of 9 fee waivers without a LSAT score. The only ones that would not budge are Georgetown, Emory and GW...they all pretty much said "If we want you to have a fee waiver, we will give you one." lol. Still, I look at it as a victory.

School list has changed a bit, I am probably moving back to my home state for law school. I have "ties" there and if I have any hope of a political future, I need to go somewhere in which a conservative democrat will have a chance of winning elections.

Haha you're right. Since you got into Cornell and GULC I'm sure you'll get GW too.

Fingers crossed, zero!! I was held at W&M so I'm not counting on anything.

Yea, I always have wanted to be a politician. I thought researching it (thus the PhD) would be enough to satisfy, but I do not just want to write about it, I want to DO it. I am a do'er

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Hahaa.. You're right though. But by the time we're outta law school, I think we'll be immune to all the nonsense. LOL.

Submit the need base app to GULC. I did and they were pretty receptive to it.

Comments are the reason I read the internet. I have a weird love for reading the terrible things people are willing to say when they think no one will find out it's what they believe IRL.

The internet is the reason I refuse to buy into this "post-racial america" BS.

Thanks Quanie :D
And yes, I was definitely considering it. Still not sure if it was a good thing that I couldn't (because I had already began the RD app). But I guess we shall see when schollies come out.
