Waitlisted at 2/3 8-14 Are there negatives to using the June LSAT to get off waitlist?

I just worry most spots given off the waitlist will be given before my June score will be back.

Are they not going to consider me for those spots because they will be waiting for my score?

Waitlisted at everything T14 I've applied to thus far. Makes sense with my numbers.

I thought this same thing. I'm considering taking the June LSAT to try to get off of a waitlist, and if nothing else set myself up for a better cycle next year. But I wasn't sure if the school I'm hoping to get into off of the WL would be alerted that I was taking the June LSAT and hold my application until then, not offering me a spot in the meantime.

Yes, I think if they're able to offer you a spot with the current score they will. It seems to be the best choice especially taking into account next cycle.

I'm confused. Didn't you just ask the same question as me? And now you're answering it? Lol
