Feb retake for this cycle? Realistic?

Postby Rox1994 » Mon Oct 24, 2016 5:45 pm

Hey all!

I'm planning to retake in Feb... but I still want to apply this cycle? My top choice is UT, and I realistically see myself scoring better on the February test. They also take the Feb score. Is this taboo or ill-advised? I don't want to waste my 4.0, but nerves on test day and sporadic practice dropped me to a 156 on test day after PTing in the mid 60s.

Yes, I could get into some OK schools, i.e. SMU, but Texas is my top choice.

Advice one way or the other??? Thanks!

Shoot for mid 160s and you're in at Texas with your GPA. Get a 167 and you're looking at Texas with some decent money, I bet. Assuming you are from Texas (judging by your choice of schools), Texas could be really affordable even with a median LSAT.


Is this taking into account the fact that people often advise February is a bad retake for admissions? So many spots are filled, your numbers should be better, etc. I am in-state by the way!

Thanks for the input!
