Brooklyn wants me to retake... should I?

Postby bulletreverb » Wed Jan 06, 2010 9:50 pm

I took the LSAT in June 2009 and I got my highest score that I ever scored in practice and I was very pleased, yet I knew the score was on the low side. The other day I got a letter from Brooklyn implying I would get wait listed (I think?) and if I retook and went up even 2 pts I would have a better shot (but nothing definite). Since I got my highest score ever and its been 7 months since I've looked at the test.. could I realistically improve a few points next month? Also, they implied that doing worse or the same was NOT GOOD...

only you really know if its a bad idea...i personally got fed up with the lsat at one point and took a large amount of time off and came back stronger than ever...but i can see how some people could take a large amount of time off and come back testing lower than when they stopped studying.....so i guess its personal.

you have know urself and how you think u will react to study again...



sorry for not helping at all... think of this as a long bump

You wrote that you got your highest score ever. But did you get the highest score you were capable of? Did you do your best? If you studied for 4 - 6 hours per night, 5 - 6 nights per week, for 10 weeks, and took every practice test available, and really tried to understand every single wrong answer then you did your best. If not, then get back to work and do it right this time.
