Negotiating scholarship money with a better LSAT score

Postby jychun412 » Thu Dec 20, 2012 8:41 pm

I'm sure it's been asked before but sorry I can't find it.
If I retake the LSAT in June and get 175+ (I have 171 now) will the T7 schools reconsider their scholarship offers?
Or is the June LSAT too late to negotiate any money?

With a high GPA, a 175+ could put you in HYS range which would require sitting out a cycle but would also be completely worth it (unless some T14s throw big money your way).

If applications are in already, it could still count for this cycle.

That being said, enough people reported success with that strategy last cycle

That's what I needed to know. Thanks!
I submitted my apps already and got a few acceptances.
But if I do manage 175+, I think I'll be really tempted to reapply next cycle..
