October vs. December LSAT

Postby FlyHigh » Sat Aug 27, 2011 1:17 pm

I know this has been written about before, but I would like the insight of TLS readers.

Basically: I have numbers and softs that fall in the range of HYSC but I have yet to take the LSAT. I am debating whether to take it in Oct. or Dec.

Oct. Pros
- Assuming I get a high enough score, I would be eligible for round 1 of admission decisions
- Technically, at those schools like H that have rolling admissions, Oct. would work in my favour
- If I am not satisfied with my score, I can retake in Dec.

Oct. Con
- I will be going into the exam with only 5ish weeks of studying. Currently PT'ing at 165 or so but want to have an LSAT score of 175

Dec. Pro
- More time to hit 175

Dec. Con
- Far away + rolling admission factor

what do you guys think?

If you're aiming for HYS and can't get into the mid-170s by October, take it in December. If you're PTing in that range for October, take it then.

Assuming you have a sufficiently high GPA.
