Retaking the LSAT Following Acceptance?

Postby lawbuddy1 » Mon Oct 08, 2012 12:44 pm

I did not find an answer to this question on the forum.

If I retake the LSAT after being accepted for admission to a school, will they see my new LSAT score?

Yes, that is what I'm considering.

However, I wonder whether doing so and scoring the same or less than my previous score would put me under future scrutiny. :|

I can't be sure about that. I don't think scoring the same would harm you.

There are certainly some schools that will consider raising scholarship amounts if you take the LSAT after being accepted. My advice would be to contact the admissions office and see what their policy is.

Good luck.

Bump because I am in similar situation!

Has anyone had success retaking LSAT after acceptance and getting more $$ because of it? I was accepted ED at a t14, essentially committing to sticker, but was wondering if there were any ways to squeeze even a little bit of a scholarship out of the situation. Thank you!

I deposited at a school last cycle that offered me no scholarship money, took the June LSAT and improved 5 points, and the day of the score release the school emailed me and offered a half ride without me even asking.
