Caught that wait list at Northwestern today. Not sure whether I should hold my breath over Duke, Cornell, GULC, & Texas and I'm still hesitant to take Vandy at near sticker when I know for a fact I can raise my score next year.

The idea of retaking for next year is becoming more and more appealing.


you definitely should, you aren't many points from HLS becoming a very real possibility


totally agree. with that GPA, you're a shoo-in if you get your LSAT at 165+

I think if you are confident you can score higher, you may as well deposit at your best option, retake in june, and decide in july whether to sit out.

I def think a retake is the right course of action here, a few points could be huge with that GPA, but we should be careful with the "shoo-in" language. It is misleading. I think 165 gives you a good chance, but it doesn't guarantee anything. (take it from me)

point taken. i don't want to circulate wrongful assumptions or make anyone overly confident. still, i definitely agree that OP should retake. any upward movement could help significantly.

I'd prefer to wait until October, so I'll be damn sure I have enough studying in (7 months sounds a lot better than 3) and spending hundreds on a seat deposit that I might not end up keeping... idk.

Principe, take the year and study. I am taking that route and it's already paying dividends as: my scores have already increased, I got an amazing job to add to the resume, plus another year and some change to travel and do what I want. Plus, your apps will be in before Thanksgiving.

Again congrats to everyone, you all are quite an impressive and inspirational group, in multiple regards. Really random question, but how old are the people on this thread? If you have fearing of outing yourself I understand, just curious. I ask because I'm 20, and I'm starting to get this nagging feeling that maybe I should/'ve wait(ed). It seems like most of you have W.E.
