3.98 GPA, 169 October LSAT. Retake?

Postby cruxisfalcon » Sat Jan 12, 2013 8:45 pm

I'm scheduled to retake in Feb (I'm a junior), but I haven't so much as looked at LSAT material for two months. Do you think I'd have adequate time to get to the 175ish range in 1 month? Any tips or study plans?

Assuming I don't retake, what schools are targets? Penn/Mich or lower than that?

There is no point in you retaking in Feb (especially if you're still in school).

Study moar, retake in June.

A) Take the day off.

or

B) Take it in October.

You're a junior, dude. Why would you take it without enough prep?

Dafuq? Even people at NORAD can take a day off for the LSAT.

If you know the test well enough to score a 169, 1 month of undistrubed prep is definitely enough to score a ~175.

That being said, you are a student which does makes undisturbed prep unlikely to occur in that month, especially if you don't sacrifice your GPA, which you should attempt to stop at all cost. That is your ticket into HYS, don't lose it for no good reason.


Retake in June, you're a junior. Retake again in October if you don't get the score you want. You're a junior. Time is on your side.
