Early Test Date vs. Multiple Score w/r/t Scholarships

Hey,

I, like so many people on these boards, am fretting about whether to take the June LSAT or push it back until October. And while I'll spare you the specific details of my own quandary, permit me to ask a couple questions regarding postponement in general: 1. How do late cycle test scores affect scholarship chances, particularly the named scholarships? 2. In doling out these scholarships, how do schools factor in multiple test scores? Would they average them? Just take the high? Eliminate a candidate purely on the basis of their having re-taken? I haven't the slightest...

Advance thanks for any insight.

Thanks both for the direct and tacit advice. Unfortunately, I do sometimes tend to talk in the style of that post. Efforts to avoid sounding like an oaf (especially in a first post) can lead to pedantic/grandiloquent BS, which is arguably worse. I'll chill in the future.

LOL, well I'll be the first to tell you that if you talk like this regularly on TLS, people will probably make fun of you.

Also, I forgot to link a very important thread regarding retakes and about which schools, in particular, take your highest LSAT and which ones average the scores.

Good luck!

Thanks for the seriously helpful link.

And if my verbal tics come at the cost of some TLS ribbing, I'll survive (somehow).
