Deposit. Retake in June. Decide in July whether to attend or sit out.

Deposit, then sign up for June and retake. If successful, then fuck that school and go to HYS next year. If not and you get a 120, then go to that school. Also, if you decide to retake and get a higher score to justify another cycle, you can also retake again in October (assuming you have one left).

Edited: Scooped.

The reason I am asking this question is that I need to figure out whether I should blow several thousand dollars on a tutor for a couple months to see if I can break my plateau or just let it go. Also, if I wind up deciding to wait, I could look into even later LSAT dates too.

One last thing: The last two times I wrote the LSAT, I had a lot going on around the same time, so I never had a few months entirely free to commit to studying.

don't blow several thousands on a tutor. that's a waste. Just do noodley's or lsat trainer or something.

This advice is good but incomplete. Practice tests are a great tool. But, you can improve your score much more efficiently if you take the time to learn the test. Great threads on this site to do that. Learn Logic Games. Learn the language of logic for Logical Reasoning (you may already be familiar if you've taken a logic course). Learn the types of questions in each section. While doing this take maybe a full practice exam a week. After that, carbo-load on tests, tests, test.

Deposit & retake. Seems that depositing may help reduce your anxieties while prepping for your third LSAT sitting.

It would be interesting to know the T-10 law schools which waitlisted you as well as your acceptance & rejection.
