What would you do in this scenario? HLS and CLS

Postby quigleyest » Wed Jan 11, 2017 7:17 pm

Current LSAT on record is 173, LSDAS GPA ~3.65

mid 20s, want to get the ball rolling sooner than later

If I get ~177 on Feb LSAT, but am also admitted to CLS,


Would you advise me to:

a) take CLS acceptance and matriculate
b) apply for chance at HLS on sept 1

Goals: NYC biglaw/ fedgov
be iconic leader for minority group that I identify in (not URM for LS)

*Also, should I pay for an HLS app now for this cycle? In my LSAT retake preparation, I am ranging 175-180 through 8ish preptests (all 70s)

When you say, Current LSAT = 170-175, does that mean that you got your a 170 on your 1st take and 175 on your second take? Or is that the range that you're scoring on PTs.
