To what extent does the "highest score=most considered score" go as far as my case is concerned? I got a 154 the first time, now aiming for a score in the high 160's to low 170's
I'd imagine if you had an applicant scoring in the 130's the first time a stellar retake score would not erase some of the red flags a first take in the 130's would raise
Curious about this well, especially as it relates to the T6.
When I saw a jump in LSAT of more than 15 points on an application, I was instantly curious about the circumstances surrounding the first take..and then what happened in between the two takes. I have to say that statistically, this doesn't happen very often, fwiw.
I would suggest sending a very brief addendum that gives a good explanation of why there is such a big difference - I know I would want to know the reason if I were reading it. If there is a good reason, then the red flags might just go away. In any case, the highest score would be the one reported to the ABA -- always.
Thanks! My problem was not a lack of studying, but a lack of understanding the material initially....I put in 4 months and got a 154 ( I'm not sure if that actually sounds worse than getting a 154 with minimal studying)
Unfortunately, the exam started to "click" for me just right after I took the Official test - Scored a 168 on a proctored exam 4 weeks after
I will have the benefit of time distance since it will be 2 years between first take and when i retake
