LSAT fourth time

Postby onthemoney » Sat Apr 03, 2010 11:11 pm

Does anybody know of schools that will write to the LSAC allowing you to take the LSAT for a fourth time within two years?

I just did this an hr ago. I sent one out to wustl bc someone on TLS mentioned that they approve requests fairly quickly.

It would probably be in your best interest to say - "I plan to apply" - and do so. If offered admission, you're not required to accept the offer.

If you're serious about it, start with the lowest Tier schools and work your way up. Try this: use a spreadsheet with all the schools and MS Word, write the letter with appropriate fields, do a mail merge, and sign your name 190 times... I'd spend the money and write letter rather than emails. If you're strapped for cash, send 25 at a time.

Obviously, I've contemplated this, but lightening does strike once in awhile!

why would you say 'no'? are you utterly lacking common sense?

They asked if I HAD applied. And of course I told them I planned on applying.

So apply, call back, and have the right answer this time. Be kind, though, you're on borrowed time.

Problem is - it's past the application deadline.
