172 I retake


This I'd accept a 173. Anything less and I retake.

I know I can get a 177 and above since I have done it plenty of times before. The nerves really got to me during this LSAT. I felt like I was dazed the whole time/a deer in headlights. I can barely remmeber some of the questions.

At the same time, I think I have a decent chance of getting a 173, so we will see.

174 ran out of time on every section. Had to make a 50/50 guess on around 3 per section of LR so I will not be satisfied until I finish with time to look over the tough ones.

As long as I get my current PT average of 174, I doubt I'll retake. I've scored well above that on a decent percentage of my PT, but the June curve is generally the most unfriendly of them all. That said, and considering a scheduling conflict with the October test, my strong desire to apply as early in the cycle as possible (i.e. not waiting for the December test), and my absolute refusal to delay for yet another year, I'll probably take whatever I get and make the best of it.

What score would make you retake in my position?

Bc I'm really not sure if it would be worth it for me


Do you think you did better than 170 this time?

But wow... 2 170s. When do you plan on applying anyways?


I think I most likely did my usual or better on LR and RC. LG, I have no idea! I finished, but I misread a question one game and rule on the other, so I was flustered and rushed. I have had similar experiences in PTs, and ended up with -0 though, so I don't want to cancel.

I'm aiming for T14 or UT

This was my third time after a 166, cancel from Oct and Dec 2010. The cancel was from just hardly prepping for my retake, and being sick the day of the test. I could wait until Dec. or Feb. and and get past the two-year rule, but I prepped very hard this time around and I think I've basically hit my ceiling. Though I do feel confident that I got 170+ on this test. I have a high GPA so a 170+ would probably get me T6, which I'd be ecstatic about.

I average 173-4 on PTs. Some I took with obnoxious cartoons on in the background while babysitting, so I feel good about that at least.

I have a 4.1, but my school has a history of inflation. Even though the vast majority of my coursework is upper-level (and I busted my ladyballs for my grades), I'm assuming the worst about how admissions will look at it.

I'll retake below 172. 172-174, I'll think about it, but I'm reluctant to go through all this stress again. 175+, I'm getting the quote I listened to/recited all morning tattooed somewhere.

169-, ugh.
170-172, maybe hit, maybe stay, I dunno. I really don't want to take the test a 3rd time, but I'd certainly be disappointed.
173, most likely stay.
174+, I'll stay.

Averaging 169.5, I'd be fine with a 165 honestly.

Anything below a 170 def will have to retake.

Would be okay with a 173 and would weep from joy with a 175+
