Retaking LSAT in June

Postby blinkmtt3 » Mon Apr 06, 2015 1:47 pm

I am already accepted to University of Nebraska-Lincoln and plan on attending in the Fall. However, due to my very low LSAT (149) I was not offered any scholarship money and I am out of state. Does anyone know if I take the LSAT again in June and do substantially better if I can request them to consider me for scholarship money? I am considering taking a year off to apply to different schools too, pending a better LSAT score.

Sure, I was able to do that. Maybe they won't play ball but it's worth a shot.

Don't matriculate. Sit out the cycle and retake. One lousy retake can change your entire life for the better.

I agree. You should retake and reapply. I think it's guaranteed that you will do better than 149 if you study diligently.

Thanks. I absolutely think I will do better. I was pregnant, still in undergrad, and working full time (I'm a non-trad). Now that I can apply myself, I am positive the score will go up. After some contemplating, I am taking again in June. Wish me luck! :)

Smart choice. Don't be afraid to sit out the cycle for much better options after applying early in the fall.

Good luck!

Good luck! I'll be taking the LSAT this June as well. Hopefully, we'll both be happy with our scores. :)
