Really? I didn't think that was the case at all. I mean you can give you one, but I didn't see a reason to unless something addendum-worthy hurt one of your scores (physical ailment, death in the family, etc).

I agree with Daytukrjabs, but I could be wrong.

Need cliff version.


OP didn't work hard enough on LSAT or admissions. Didn't get into great schools. Wants to go to law school this fall. Is signed up for June LSAT but isn't ready.


So what's the dilemma?



Either I misread something which is possible because I only half ass read this thread but here's a dilemma and correct me if I am wrong but the LSAT is on MONDAY not SATURDAY!!! feel free to tear me apart if I am in fact wrong.
Oh whoops, sorry. Forgot that the June test is on a Monday.

It's not an issue. At ALL.


I guess I was under the wrong impression then. My bad.

I've done the LSAT's twice (one cancel) and going for the third this October....I don’t want to write a addendum as I don’t really have an excuse-just that I was a damn fool, that's all.

So I can get away without explaining why I had to do the LSAT 3 times?

That's the way it seems. It's like writing an addendum for a poor GPA when you have no real excuse, there is no point.

Just have to accept that they will see 3 LSAT's and let the adcomms make a decision from there.

Uh, the answer is simple and I don't understand why people are telling you any different. Take the LSAT this weekend, if submit whatever score you get to Rutgers, keep pestering them and hopefully they take you off the WL. Keep studying for October in the meantime. It doesn't matter if you cancel or take it now, it still counts as one of your "3 chances." 3 LSAT scores is not the death sentence it used to be now that USNWR takes the highest and for the schools you will be applying for they definitely will not care, since they are so LSAT hungry for rankings purposes.

If you just have an absence, it doesn't count towards your "3 chances".

OP, even if you do get off the waitlist, you will be paying sticker at Rutgers. A higher score could get you money or give you the opportunity to go to a better school. I would skip the June test & re-take in October.

So if I know my score will be canceled, isn't it better to not show up? So that I can take it again in December if I have to.

Andyman, you posted this months ago and I answered you with "retake/reapply". You need to get into the low 160's for Rutgers with your GPA.
