Imporant point about retakes and applications.

If you tell them to go ahead and process your app despite having a future LSAT on file they will do just that. If that means they straight up reject you before your new score is in, and suddenly you do better, you are SOL for this year for that school. You can't reapply the same year, even with a marked improvement on LSAT.


This is VERY interesting. If what you say is true, no one should apply to a specific law school early until they get a sufficient LSAT score. Applying before you receive your retaken score would then be a mistake. This is a HUGELY important point. I wish this thread would be made into a sticky thread.

maxm, I believe that the point raised here is very important to all would be law school applicants. If you don't agree, so be it.

I have heard of stories of rejections miraculously turning into acceptances because of a higher LSAT score. And I doubte schools will reject you before your new LSAT is in.

taxguy, there has been a multitude of threads and posts that say exactly what you just said. The search function is a valuable tool on this site and I wish you would use it instead of starting a redundant thread that has been discussed before.

There's no new information found in this thread, that's why it's abnoxious.
