Retake? Semi-splitter applying to WashU

Postby midwesthope » Mon Oct 28, 2013 10:28 pm

So my numbers are 3.1 and 165. I studied for a decent amount of time for the October test, but I could do a lot more drilling for the December test now that I have already studied. The LG section was my weakest with a -6.

Should I apply to WashU with my numbers soon and then update my application with a December retake? Or should I wait until I get my December results back?

Secondly, is it worth it to retake the LSAT if I'm aiming for WashU? I was hoping I could get some $$$ with just a few more points.

it depends on school. some school once they have a decision they call it "final decision" and will not re-review your new score again. I got the answer from Houston. Don't know about WashingtonSTL so I think you should email them

For now, 166 is the magic number at WUSTL.

-6 on LG can definitely be improved upon. Retake for sure.
