Retake - Reapply

Postby sometime82 » Wed Jun 10, 2015 4:20 am

This has to be somewhere.

I am retaking my LSAT and reapplying. What is the policy when I submit my applications ( new personal statement, different LOR, ...) is it unified between schools?

Schools will probably appreciate an updated PS and resume. At least one of HYS requires a new LOR too iirc.

But retake and reapply is almost always tcr. Don't rush into school with subpar numbers and financial package.

Yes updated PS is the main thing, resume only if something's changed or needs updating.

You can keep current LORs, I added another one when I reapplied to help differentiate it a little more but it probably doesn't matter.

But is it not accepted to use my old personal statement?

Yeah I'd do a new one
