Reapplication Question

Postby lizzielemon » Thu Jan 15, 2015 4:17 pm

I took the december LSAT and sent in my apps way before the lsat date. However, after PT'ing at least 15 points above my actual score (took over 30 PTs), I'm a little stuck at what to do.

Is it better to just leave the apps for this cycle going or withdraw them?

I probably will end up retaking in June and applying for next cycle early. Does it look bad if you withdraw an app now then reapply next year or does it look worse if you apply and get denied, then reapply next year?

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

I mean, I don't think you'd be hindered by leaving them (if youve already paid) but DEFINITELY defer.

It does not look bad if you politely withdraw and reapply next year. Happens all the time and schools won't hold it against you. Life happens.

Whether you withdraw and reapply or get denied and reapply doesn't matter. Although I do remember reading that if you're a re-applicant and your application remains the same then it can be viewed in a negative light (in OPs case the LSAT means it will be different, but just in general to others who may be reading).
