Should I retake? (3.98/167)

Postby esther0123 » Mon Oct 28, 2013 6:20 pm

Hello, I just got my score, and I am a bit disappointed...

I have 3.98 and 167, and I have been practicing at 165-175, 171 being both average and mode -- scored 165 only once (I think it was some serious outlier...)

Should I retake in December? or would it be too late anyways?
I have not been studying between October 5th - Now and I have exhausted all test prep material.
I have decent softs and some good life experience for PS.

I BOMBED LR!

:(

Thank you for your input

I would retake. That GPA deserves a higher LSAT score and your wallet will thank you.

Would completing my application in January be a serious problem?

Not if you can get in the 170s. You could also consider taking time off. (not sure if you have or not, but not being K-JD is a perk)

i would retake. you have potential to do way higher. go for it! just redo the tests, but maybe time them shorter (Less than 35 min...maybe 27-30 min a section)

With a GPA like that, you owe it to yourself to retake.

Do you think I can safely improve to mid 170s range (in case I drop a few points on the real deal again) within a month?

I was really stagnant towards the end, fluctuating between 169-171 towards the end... :S

Yup. Difference is only accuracy at this point
