One was from a department of the federal government so my timeline ended up all messed up and blaaaah. So I'll probably just end up using my one from an adviser of an org I'm in.

Honestly, probably whichever I get first.

ALSO AM I THE ONLY PERSON FREAKING. OUT. ABOUT SCORES MAYBE TOMORROW??? OR???????????


I honestly just want the damn score back, not really nervous because there is the possibility of Dec.


My issue is december would be my third retake for 2 years and I would have to sit out for 2 years if it doesnt go well. I dont really like that feeling. I think if Oct doesnt go well, I might sit out until June


And sit this cycle out?

If Oct is bad I might just wait out a cycle.

I mean I guess it wouldn't hurt to try right? Would it be a bad idea to sit it out?

still, a sub 160 would be devastating.


I thought I did well too, so a sub 160 will cause me to hit the gin bottle pretty hard.

It's never a bad idea if you think you can improve.

Yeah my sub 160 in June was like someone stabbed me in the chest, but i knew it was coming. I gave up during the reading comp section. This time I felt like okaygo, it was the best I could have done right now. So we will see tomorrow - Thursday.

I'm hoping for a 165, I can live with a 160-163, and will not be applying with a sub 160

WELL. I'll sleep a little more soundly tonight with that in mind. Right now I'm a 3.62/155 with standard/decent softs so I just need to cross the daggone lsat threshold.

Georgetown is literally my DREAM though.

U might be able to do a little more damage with a 159 with your GPA. But that doesn't matter cuz we missed about 5 questions total between the 3 of us

Ahhhh, now I'm going to have to start doing research. Right now I'm all about GULC or Duke. But I got to school really close to DC so I really want to stay in the area. What are you all's thoughts on GW? Anything?

Not even applying to GW, i have no desire to go there. I am not even sure what they have to offer as a school. Duke is my number 2 and gtown is number 3.

I'm from the DC area and I totally get wanting to stay there, but philly is legit 2 hours on the bus. Duke is waaayyy further.
