Hmm, good to know. I've read that December scores typically are released earlier than other exams (http://blog.powerscore.com/lsat/bid/153 ... -2004-2016), so I think it's unlikely that our applications would be significantly delayed!I haven't decided yet if I'm taking in December or waiting a cycle (I'm taking it on Saturday and know I'll need to retake), but if I do decide to go for December I would definitely apply.

Why not just sit out on Saturday and take it in December to save yourself a retake?

Well, there is a chance that I'll score within my target range--I'm just not at a point where I'm super consistent. Since I paid for it all already, I figure that I'll take it on the off chance of doing well and never, ever having to look at another LSAT question again. :) It's my first take, so if I do need to retake I've learned my lesson and won't sign up for a test until I'm consistently scoring where I need to be...

Do y'all know what numbers are usually competitive for RTK?

That makes sense - I didn't realize it was your first take. Good luck!

They don't publish or disclose medians for their named scholarships. I would imagine it would be similar to their regular medians, but that they're a lot more focused on a demonstrated desire, and experience, to work in PI.

I've heard this about these scholarships. I know other schools use scholarships to keep students from going to YHS, but was curious to the extent that they do that for these. The profiles of some of the students on the website are really impressive. It's a little intimidating, but if you don't play you can't win, I guess.

Woah, you think? That would be awesome. I assumed it was above both 75ths, like named scholarships at other schools.

Yeah, some are totally overwhelming...but there are also a fair amount that are pretty standard TFA + some college extracurriculars, so take heart! There's room for those of us who haven't tried to single-handedly reform the criminal justice system before the age of 21.
