Some questions about Feb LSAT score

Postby lawamor » Fri Nov 15, 2013 12:16 am

This is my first time post here. I am an international student from China.

My June LSAT score is 152 ,and Oct is 163. I have started application, but I still want to get a higher score in Feb. I am in gap year now, so I don't want to waste another year. I want to roll in 2014 fall.

Now I am applying to school like Fordham, W&M, Wisconsin Madison, IUB, BU, BC, GWU, WUSTL.

I want to know if I take the Feb LSAT, and improve it to 168+, do I still have chance apply to T14 or T20?

If not, does the updated score will help me argue scholarship with the listed schools?

Thanks a lot! Information in China about this situation is quite limited. Hoping get advice from you guys!

Can you take the December test? February is kind of late...but yes i mean you can still take the test and send your updated score to your schools.

The Dec test's registration deadline has passed. I think during Oct and Dec my score cannot be improved to 168+.

I just feel there is still potential for me to get a higher score. As you can see I improve a lot during June and Oct. If I cannot use the new score apply better schools, I plan use it to bargain scholarship with schools that I have got admissions.


Very happy to see your advice.

You can apply, and indicate that you're going to take the February LSAT. Don't wait for the February LSAT to apply, it's very, very late and will pose some disadvantages. If you're really set for Fall 2014, just apply now, and in the LSAT section of the application you can mark down that you're taking a future LSAT.

Just my opinion, but this is something you can do.
