Advice on june retake & potentially re-applying

Postby TLSwag » Fri Mar 09, 2012 5:46 am


I am currently on the WL at 2 t30 schools (2 of the following: GW/BU/Fordham/BC) and admitted with nearly a full scholarship to a few other t50 ones. I am pretty set on retaking in June, as I practice tested consistently within the 169-172 range, net average of over 170. I was disappointed with my score but decided to apply this cycle regardless. I know I can perform better on the LSAT and I will be thrilled if I get off a WL at one of these schools, but my question is, given my GPA, what score would be advisable to reapply and blanket the t14, with a reasonably good chance at getting one? I guess I am trying to gauge at what threshold I should consider reapplying. I do wish to go to law school this fall but certainly understand the value in holding off if its worthwhile.

170+ should give you a shot at some of the lower T14. 172+ and an early application at even more. If you're breaking 170 on some practice tests, you can get up to the high 170s with a few more months of study and a good day. 175+ and you're considered at everything but HYS.
