Scholarship Question with retake

Postby tbird » Sun Jul 22, 2012 4:55 pm

I have a 3.51 in Chemical Engineering. I got a 165 first take in June. I was scoring around that towards the end of my practice tests, 165/167, so I think I performed pretty well for my abilities. I do feel like with another couple months of work I am more than capable of scoring higher. I got a 165 missing 5 on my last logical reasoning section, and missing 7 on my logic games. I think I can do a lot better than that, especially with some more work on my games section, which seems to be the section you can improve the most. I am usually very consistent at LR and RC.

My question though is will a couple of points help me get a lot more scholarship money at ASU? I am doing undergrad at ASU, own a house here, already work at a law firm here, and have a lot of connections here due to my current job. I think it would be awesome to get into a T14 school, but I think that would be a waste of time and money since I want to end up living in AZ anyways. I think with the 165 I stand a good chance to get some small scholly money, especially with declining application numbers. Would a 167 or higher get me a lot more money? Does ASU give any full-ride scholys? What are the numbers of people getting those? Will it hurt me if for some reason I retake and end up with a worse LSAT score? I feel like the pressure is actually off this time around since I already got a score well above their median. Let me know.

Thanks,

Probably.
Probably.
IDK. (80k max, but thats probably OOS).
Above both 75ths.
No.

Looks like much will come down to your negotiating skills with Shelli.
