Low LSAT, High GPA, work experience

Postby Smicikl2 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 5:12 pm

Hi All-

I need some advise:

- 3.96 GPA from big ten school in mathematics and economics (graduated with high distinction)

- 161 - lsat: taken after two full days of 6 interviews each for my full-time job and a relative recently passed away

- two years of international banking experience with JPMorgan

- want to apply to George Washington, USC, northwestern, and NYU

Should I retake the LSAT before applying? Given if I reprep and study I think I can do better (pretty stressed out the first time given the circumstances). Or should I apply now?

Just curious what you guys think I should do as repreparing for the LSAT will be quite time consuming.

Thanks in advance!

100% retake. I would wait to apply until after probably.

Work, save money, and study up. Apply after you take it the second time.
