cancel and apply now or wait for retake? advice please

Postby Korlath » Mon Nov 08, 2010 2:51 am

So I scored a 158 on my LSAT. On my PTs I was scoring around 159-162. I can't decide whether to apply now or just wait for the retake. I want to apply early in order to increase my chances...but I also want a retake...but to be honest I don't know by how much I can increase my score. I'm still scoring around the same right now and my highest has still been 162. I can probably score a 160 (worst case scenario) in December but I don't want to blow my chances by applying late...

would a 2 point increase really matter? or should I just go ahead and apply? I really need some advice...

background info
URM (first generation mexican-american)
3.09 GPA

not applying to anywhere spectacular but UC Davis is my first choice.

Don't waste your URM status and settle for that LSAT score. Retake +score higher+get $$$ at your dream school.
