Taking LSAT in June for Scholly $

Postby rickfox » Fri Oct 14, 2011 2:46 pm

Can/do schools ever withdraw offers if you perform worse? Also, if you perform worse will that adversely affect your chances getting off a WL?

I've never heard of an admitted student being rejected because of a lower score.

Yes, of course a lower LSAT score will hurt your chances of getting of the WL--especially if other WLers got higher scores.

Question: Why would you retake the LSAT if you think you'll do worse?

Ideally you should be expecting to score AT LEAST a little better (more prep = higher score?)

He didnt say he thought he was going to do worse, but its a possibility.

I dont think it would really negatively effect your WLs, but it certainly wouldnt help.

Makes sense. I think I'm going to retake when the time comes and withdraw if I perform better.

I'd consider it.... I can't tell you how glad I am that I withdrew and re-took

I get bummed out when thinking about how I didnt retake. It takes strong will power, but I think its worth it.
