Decline Acceptance, Retake LSAT, and apply to same school...

Postby PlugInBaby » Wed Mar 10, 2010 6:57 pm

...with hopes of better scholarship money. Or admittance in a more preferred school.

A slight variation on another topic, this time instead of deferring an admission, declining it. I realized that there were many things I could have done to greatly improve my application. In addition, my criteria for what I want in a law school has changed quite a bit since I sent applications out in November. I do plan on applying to five (or just three if i pull of an LSAT miracle) of the same schools (including the one I got accepted in) in addition to five new ones next cycle.

Would their be any hard feelings from the adcomm of the school I was accepted to if were to take this course of action? What would be the best way to convey the situation (if it even needs to be conveyed)?

Thanks much ahead of time.

Dean Pless answered this question in the UIUC thread, saying that he doesn't mind, but he would ask questions if it happened two years in a row.
