Retaking LSAT: Will they wait for the new score?

Postby bhurd » Sun Oct 31, 2010 5:31 pm

I'm retaking in Dec., and I'm already registered. If I submit apps now with the Oct score, will schools wait to review my file until the Dec score shows up?

Do you have to contact the admissions office? Or is it enough to say that you intend to take the Dec LSAT on the app?

Check the app, if they don't ask email them.

It's safest to email and ask them to hold off, but from what I understand the default for most is to hold off on making a decision unless you tell them to go ahead.
