Possibly taking another year?

Postby nh1776 » Wed Apr 04, 2012 3:56 pm

I am thinking about taking another year off from law school, even though I applied and was accepted to several school this cycle. I was wondering how schools typically react to you rejecting their offer and then applying again the next year. Thoughts?

Also will a September 2009 LSAT still be good for next cycle? I know most schools says three years but how is that determined?

According to many on TLS (based on me asking the same question), law schools won't care about previous applications if you have a new GPA/LSAT to report. However, if you are not planning on retaking, I don't know how they feel. Defer maybe?

I can't imagine that'll be a problem. If you reject their offer just send them a withdrawal letter explaining your circumstances to some extent and that you wish to apply again next year.

LSAT score is good for 5 years but since some schools say 3...I'd just contact them directly and confirm. I'd assume that score will be fine but I'm not honestly sure.
