Retake or transfer??

Postby sysuh » Fri Mar 01, 2013 12:10 am

I took the LSAT in October and cancelled my score. Retook it in December and scored a 165. I had been scoring around 170 on PTs. I really think it was my nerves that screwed me over. I got accepted into a couple of schools but I'm not thrilled so I've been considering transferring. Would it be terrible to take the LSAT a third time and re-apply for the next cycle since transferring seems to be a really risky process? Or should I just suck it up and enter 1L with the intent of transferring? Also, would I be able to use the same letter of recommendations used from this cycle for the next as well?

Thanks!

Never go to a law school you wouldnt be happy graduating from. Youll probably end up around median and be stuck there.

Retake in June.
