You know that Harvard will still consider your reported LSAT score, right? You'd have to wait until you had gotten a response from Harvard to take the LSAT and apply anywhere else, which would be a waste of time and money.

I am indeed aware that Harvard will still consider my reported LSAT score, which is why I would like to wait until I get a response from Harvard before I take the LSAT. It is not a waste of time, as I am not in any hurry to enroll in law school and would prefer to focus my efforts on the exam that will give me the best chances of admission, and it wouldn't be a waste of money because I already have an LSAC and GRE fee waiver. :roll:


But that means you'd literally be devoting a whole cycle to Harvard. HLS doesn't give decisions back very early in the cycle, so by the time you heard back, it would likely be too late to take the February LSAT. I usually think that 0Ls tend to rush the whole admissions process, but congratulations, you've managed to find the other extreme.
