June LSAT to get off waitlist

Postby juevonate » Fri Jan 29, 2010 6:55 am

I have applied to schools to enter fall 2010. Is it possible or worthwhile to take the June LSAT to try to get off, when you know it's your LSAT score that's holding you back?

And no, I can't take the February one.

Yes, a significantly stronger June score can be helpful. Good luck!

Wait until April or so, see what waitlists you are still on and whether those schools would consider the June LSAT to give you a bump. No reason to sign up for it right now, but consider it as a last resort.

So long as you are on the waitlist come the end of June, it certainly cannot hurt.

I took the June LSAT and increased my score by 1 point ... perhaps it made a difference in getting off a couple of T-14 WL's. I had a 4.0 GPA, but the 1 point actually put me above the 25% LSAT for a couple of schools.
