TLS: How does UCI regard applicants with multiple LSAT scores?
We take the higher score in cases where an applicant has taken the LSAT more than once. I actually strongly discourage applicants from retaking the test, unless the conditions under which the first test was taken were somehow remarkable (the person was sick, had just gone through some personal trauma, had not taken a prep course at all, etc.). After having read thousands and thousands of applicant files, I can say with confidence that only a handful actually are able to improve their scores significantly, say increasing them by 10 or more points.
It seems to me that she believes only an increase of 10 or more points is significant. That is ridiculous. Even 4 points is significant.
I think that she probably does not realize how the percentiles break down for the LSAT and how big of a deal "10 or more points" really is.
