retaking LSAT for $$$

Postby chomp » Fri Jun 15, 2012 1:13 pm

If you apply to a school early, say september, and get a early acceptance, can you take the october lsat to try and get a few extra points to be considered for scholarships? I really want to apply early in the cycle to have the best chance at admissions/know what my options are/not go crazy waiting. I took the June lsat and I'm not 100% sure how I did, haha my practice tests were 166-169, but I'm thinking I probably did closer to 161/162.

I'm almost sure I'll be accepted where I want to go even with a 161, but it seems like they start giving the real money for 165+. Will they consider a resubmitted lsat score when looking at you for scholarships?

Advice pleasee?

As far as EDing, you'll have to check the schools website to see when the cutoff date is. If you take it in October, you can expect your score back in a few weeks.

Yes, they would reconsider your new score for a scholarship, if you retake and get a higher score. Its also known that you can use a higher score for leverage.

Good luck!
