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.

Lol. Don't make the dumb decision in not retaking, as it looks like it would probably end up being the first dumb academic decision you've made.

Just retake.
