Freaking out.

Postby TurkeyDay » Mon Dec 06, 2010 10:17 pm

161/3.61
Decent softs, LORS, personal statement.

I was feeling fine about my numbers until recently... (could be the wait that's killing me.)

If I'm waitlisted to a bunch of schools, is retaking in February a practical option?

It depends on the schools you are aiming for/applying to. Some do not accept the February LSAT as it is past their deadline.

The February LSAT can sometimes be a good bargaining chip for waitlists.

Just keep waiting. Depending on the schools you applied to, you could be giving admissions committees a tough time. Your numbers are decent, but if you've applied to a lot of "reaches" you could be in for a long wait.

Relax.

Only retake in February if youre waitlisted at a worthwhile school and if youre confident you can increase your score significantly (5 points or more).

Good luck!

Thanks everyone! Wasn't sure exactly how retakes worked with waitlists, but this cleared it up. =)
