I said the exact same thing. I was dead set on taking it once, but here I am. If you want to get into a really good law school (and I think we all do) and your score is lower than you wanted, your perspective changes.


I think my worst case scenario is getting a "good" score, but lower than I want like a 171 or 172. Because I would want to retake, but mentally it would be much harder to motivate myself than if I get a 16x, because in that case I know I can do better.

Your studying for this exam and the $$$ from that one score is the same as a salary IMO

Like a huge fucking salary considering interest and the fact that loan payments are after tax


Lol, yes - except with the right score loans are non-issue - hence retake until loans aren't necessary

Before getting to discussion of who may end up at the same school, I'm curious as to how many of us ITT will actually end up matriculating in Fall 2016


I'm Fall 2015 and so glad this cycle ride is coming to an end one and for all sometime in the next week

Yeah 171 is the nightmare zone for me. Too low to do what I want, but high enough that I can't be extremely confident that I can beat it if I take again. Like I've said earlier in this thread: I know this test really well. I'm good at it, and a lot of us are. The only thing that can kill a score for me is something like an abnormal game, a tricky passage, or an unusually high concentration of LRs. If I do poorly on this test, that's the reason. But the thing is retaking doesn't protect me from that. All I can do if I retake is hope they don't hit me with a curveball. If I retake, the studying won't be to improve, it'll be studying to keep my skills up.


I retook a 172.. it sucked. I messed up on LG and am likely scoring lower on this test. can confirm its nightmare zone

I would run with a 172. I don't understand... Isn't that above the T3 median? I would still apply at the very least.
