Score drop of 6 Points. Need info

Postby Lawschool305 » Wed Oct 19, 2016 6:45 pm

Hello Guys,

Unfortunately I had a drop of 6 points on my September LSAT. I know schools only care for highest score, and my other score was around a lot of T-14 medians. How badly will this drop hurt me in the admissions process? and if my highest score is above 75ths at a lot of top regionals do I have chances at large scholarships still?

Thanks.

I really really hope this is true. Anyone on this board have any experience with admissions after a score drop?

It's true

Plenty of people have reported score drops with no negative impact

You seriously think someone with 10K posts in the on topics would take time out of their day to lie to you?

That just shows that you're some kind of masochist. No one would post 10,000 times in the on-topics unless they either hated themselves or were a troll. Which is it Zuck? Which is it?

Since the OP is likely freaking the fuck out about the actual issue here, I just want to say that Zuck is right and schools couldn't give a flying fuck less about your lower score. There is no averaging. All they care about is the highest score because that's the one they report to U.S. News.


ETA to calm people the fuck down

They don't care about a score drop
