Has anyone taken the LSAT twice or more times and

Postby 1TLStudent » Mon Oct 15, 2012 4:28 pm

1. had their score go up at least a decent amount on a later test AND
2. noticed that after taking the test you got the better score on you started receiving emails from higher ranked schools asking you to apply

I am asking because I was not solicited to apply via email to any t14 schools during the time I waited for my Feb score but I just received one from a t14 school saying that based on the info lsac released to them I might be a good candidate. Has anyone noticed WHILE WAITING for a score that they received emails from higher ranked schools and that score was higher when it came out? Just seeing if this is in response to my old score or potentially a good sign that I might have done better this time around. Thanks.

Happened to me too. Also waiting on score. But as someone said, schools don't know our LSATs

Schools don't know until you know.


That's what I thought. I was just confused because they say that it's based on the info LSAC provided them, but up to now all I have in LSAC's database is a 2.72 (is a 2.77 now not that it makes much of a diff lol) LSAC GPA and a 166 LSAT. That def doesn't sound like the type of candidate that would get an email stating "Based on information made available from the Law School Admission Council, I believe you may be a good candidate to join the student body" haha. But maybe they just have a certain LSAT cutoff that they send emails to everyone then and my old score is above it. Thanks for the reply tho.

Haha yupp. It brought me a false sense of hope for a sec. I remember the day before or of scores being released for LSATs in feb ppl posting they were solicited by email to apply for lsat tutoring jobs and it made me think how would they know who to email unless lsac released info early. They could have been retakers though with previous scores high enough to justify the email so I wasn't too sure if that meant anything about schools/companies getting scores before us.

Nah..

Whatever thought that went through your head went through mine, lol. But nah, schools don't know beforehand.
Probably were retakers, such as we are.

The schools run queries of certain scores and then mass email- it helps increase their Yeild, thus their score for "selectivity" goes up.


Damn it Berkeley, stop playing with my emotions! haha
