Telling a school to NOT wait for my new LSAT?

Postby Prime12 » Tue Jan 11, 2011 3:59 pm

Ok, so I just checked the status checker of my safety school. It said 'HOLD - LSAT.' Thing is, I don't want them to wait for my February LSAT. My existing LSAT score is already 7 points higher than their 75% so IMO delaying the process of application will only lower my chances at getting scholarship money.

How do I tell them this though? :roll: :?:

I think a simple email to admissions would suffice.

Well... I obviously can't tell them what I just wrote. Any good ideas on how to inform them?

You don't have to give them a reason to take the hold off, they will take the hold off and review without a reason if you ask them to.

Something like:

To whom it may concern:

My name is XXX (LSAC # __________) and I applied for admission to XXX Law for Fall 2011. I have noticed that you are holding my application due to my pending LSAT registration; however, I would like your office to go ahead and review my application without considering my future LSAT score.

Thank you,
