Hypothetically, would you rather

Postby jeremydc » Thu Aug 11, 2011 4:37 pm

Take the Oct LSAT test and get a 165 or wait until the Dec test and get a 170. Apply early with a 165 or regular decision with a 170.

This is purely hypothetical.

For serious? :|

This is like asking: would you rather push your own mother off a cliff into a pool of hungry sharks or get a blowjob from the most beautiful woman in the world?

Regular with a 170 - No Question.
The benefit of a 170 + score *FAR* outweighs the generally limited advantage of applying in early fall instead of late fall.

Actually, it's more like: would you rather stub your toe accidentally or have someone make you a delicious sandwich?

However, you're so full and if you ate another bite of food, you would vomit.

But you can always wait until the next day and eat the sandwich then, it would be just as good.

I'd rather wait until December and score a 167 then get 165 in October if those were my only two choices.

hypothetically i would rather get teh 170 in october.

But if you take it in december- submit the applications before you get the score back. Or if you want to wait ( and you have a job lined up or something to do for a year) apply in september of the following calendar year.

GPA and goals are often relevant info here, but the conventional wisdom is definitely take the points and don't look back.
