So I just got my December score back, and it was 167 - about 6 points below my PT average. I am planning on retaking in February but was wondering if there's any point in sending in my applications now? I'm an AA female with an undergraduate degree from Oxford (probably 'above average', but I haven't had LSAC do it's thing with my transcript yet). I'm looking especially at Columbia and NYU. Planning on applying to Harvard post retake since they've elongated their application time.
I say go for it and apply anyway. You earned you degree from a well established University. You also have good LSAT Score. I always say shoot for the moon. The worst a school can say is no. So just go for it and see where your stars align. Also, I think Harvard only extended their deadline for first time LSAT takers. I maybe wrong. But someone ITT will correct me if I am. Lastly, I am never one to tell someone to retake because ultimately it is that individuals decision and personal circumstances. However, if you feel you can do better I say again shoot for the moon and go for that 170+. Good Luck I hope you get the school of your dreams.
