It would be smarter to apply before the app expires, and let the schools know you are retaking in June so you get waitlisted instead of rejected, then if they had room you would get in.

That's the plan. I mean I felt like I did okay on the Feb LSAT. Reading Comp was a problem for me since I didn't practice difficult RC sections. I mean the suspense is brutal right now since I am just working on my personal statement and various different essays for respective schools.

As for the previous poster that said UCLA, that would involve closer to a 167-169, no?

I think I'll take my chances with this cycle and transfer out if necessary.

I consistently got perfect LG and LR sections, and never had a perfect RC section. When I first started studying I was at like -15 and even after lots of practice the best I could do was like -5. After 1L when I was still tutoring to bring in part time income, I once prepped a section for a lesson and got -0 in about 25 minutes. I never really read before law school, and I think the brain adapts once you start reading lots every day.

Yeah, that shows you developed a habit, which we are creatures of. I am so nervous about the test score since it can mean the difference between being at Miami vs going to Iowa or UNC. It's nice that schools are slowly waning down the LSAT. It really is a test that cannot indicate success because I know people that squeaked into Miami or FIU and have respectable positions now.
