Should I take the lsat again?

Postby tj1690 » Mon Jul 02, 2012 6:39 pm

I've taken the LSAT twice, and got the same score both times, a 166.

My tests average a 173-175, so I was pretty surprised to see that I had gotten a 166 for the second time.

My question is, should I take it again? And how bad does it look taking it three times?

My buddy took the LSAT 4 times (canceled his score 3 times). it had 0 effect on his cycle. Another buddy took it 3 times, with a 15-point swing. Also didn't matter.

All they care about is your highest score. Take it again.

From an outsiders perspective (i know its hard to do it all again I am probably retaking myself) but yes, retake

I'm in a similar situation. If you don't feel like you've fulfilled your potential then definitely retake.

Undoubtedly; I was in a similar position until this afternoon.

It gets better.

Edit: grammar
