How to handle a retake app process?

Postby Pastels » Thu Oct 14, 2010 12:16 pm

I took the LSAT in October and feel I scored below my PT range. However, with my
s ore I would like to send some apps out and start the process of getting into some schools. However, if I plan on retaking in Dec should I just send apps to schools that fit the score? Will schools up schollies after an acceptance wotha better score?

Apply to schools that you feel would be a good "fit" for you and your lsat score. If you scored lower than you thought you would, you can retake in December and apply to schools after. Its a little late at that point, but if your LSAT is good enough and you put together great applications it wont be that bad.

Also, schools have been known to "up" their scholarship offers upon receiving a new LSAT score. However, many schools dont start awarding aid until after Febraury so Oct or Dec test doesnt really matter.

Good luck!
