Applying in two cycles

Postby tracy9524 » Fri Dec 09, 2016 10:12 pm

I am wondering if I can apply in two consecutive cycles to the same schools. Would it in anyway hurt me?

Just don't apply period. Run. Run now.

It doesn't hurt you, especially if your LSAT has improved. Just plan on submitting a new PS for any school that you already applied to.

Thanks! Would it be a problem to submit the same PS?

Generally, yes. Most adcomms are pretty clear on that point.

I applied two cycles and used the exact same essays. I performed as my numbers expected me to. The same schools that accepted me all accepted me again, except with more money. I turned wait lists into full rides by sitting out a cycle. What a difference 3-4 points on the LSAT makes.

ymmv. I would still probably update the PS if you were to apply a second cycle to indicate some "growth" or whatever. I was just lazy.

Haha! Good to hear! Thanks.
