Law Schools and your first LSAT

Postby cking2014 » Mon Aug 08, 2011 7:34 pm

I was wondering if anyone knew how law schools look at your first LSAT when applying to their school, and then looking at their new score. My first LSAT was REALLY bad, a 132, but that was because I had a cold and my father was in the hospital that weekend. My new score is significantly higher (more than 15 points and continuing to go up), and I was wondering how that first score might impact me getting in to a very good school. Do they just look at the score, or do they take into consideration why you got such a low score and then decide to look at your new score only? Just wondering what you think, I could really use some input, I have a really good GPA and other academic honors. I'm hoping my first LSAT won't be counted against me since my situation was pretty unique. Thanks everyone!
