Feb LSAT

Postby JoeC12 » Tue Oct 18, 2011 7:42 pm

Is taking the February LSAT too late to apply for fall semester next year. I would really like to attend school next fall and I can signinificantly improve my score if I were to take the Feb and not the Decemeber LSAT. Comments? Thanks in advance.

Depends on the school. Some take the Feb LSAT, some do not. Even if they do, note you will be at a disadvantage. Many seats will have already been taken, and most of the financial aid will probably have already been given out.

If you can, try holding off for another cycle and take the June test. I can tell you from experience that taking an undisclosed test really sucks. You never know what you got wrong, and never get to review the test again.

What do you mean by an undisclosed test? Would you recommend I call each school I am looking at and ask if they accept February test

Normally, when your LSAT score is released, you get a disclosure booklet so that you can take another look at the test.

With a non-disclosed test, the only thing you get is your score and percentile. This is fine if you do well and do not plan to retake, but if you don't do so well and/or wish to retake, not having access to the mistakes you made can be frustrating.

Many schools state the latest LSAT they'll take on their website, although you could also call them to ask.

If I were you I'd either do December or apply next cycle. Applying with the Feb. LSAT, from what I've heard, is simply a way for law schools to make $$ on your application fee and then waitlist/reject you. At that point, the vast majority of their seats will already be filled.
