if you look at mylsn, difference between a 3.8 and high 3.9x is significant in the 171-173 score range.

Don't retake a 173/3.9 or 176/3.8 if you want H. Also, Ruby covers most of COL so it's a home run as far as t13 full rides. Outside of going to HYS with full need funds, it is the best option. It is likely still the best including them.

Ruby has always been my dream outcome because I want chicago biglaw and i'm debt averse but I probably won't get it because my lsat is too low and I'm KJD. If I got a 175 I would be more confident in my chances but I'm not retaking; it'll be a frozen day in hell if I ever come near anything LSAT related again.

I do have a super interesting personal story though so I still have an outside shot I think.

Make sure you are enrolled in the Candidate Referral Service (CRS NOT CAS) on you LSAC account. I believe it is located under the profile tab. I haven't gotten any T13 action yet but Concordia has emailed me 4 times and sent me a physical letter since I got my score.

And be sure to check your spam! A lot of the school emails I get end up there, wouldn't want to miss a fee waiver!

Thanks. I assume I don't want messages from "non-LSAC member law schools?"

If I have a need-based fee waiver (took the LSAT for free) will most/all schools waive their app fee automatically? No idea how this works...

Just popping in to see if anyone finished off with the LSAT had a spare mastermind watch they were hoping to get rid of for those of us taking in September. Cheers to being done with what seems to have been one helluva test. Hoping to share some of the excitement/jubilation come October!

I signed up for everything. It's not hard to just tag certain senders as auto-deletes in Gmail if you get something you don't like. But I found out about an unofficial forum with some schools I do care about from a TTTTT, so it was worth it for me to sign up for everything.

Would retaking the 173 mean a better shot at CCN $?

most schools waive their app fee if you have an LSAC waiver!

General advice question: I gota 169, which is a full 5 points below where I was scoring on my PTs. I know I can do better. But the September test is on the day of a wedding I am in and I would be jeopardizing an important friendship if I dropped out of it to retake the LSAT. Is it worth it to retake in December if I want to apply this cycle?

What's your GPA and where are you looking to apply? You could apply around October/November with the score, and retake in December to get off of waitlists or for scholarship negotiation.

What time is the wedding??
Is there a test center near the wedding?
I know testing on the day of the wedding would be very inconvenient but I think it's an idea you could consider if at all feasible.

My gpa is low -- 3.23, and I'm in my late 20's so i don't want to delay too much. I am hoping to go in the T20 but don't want to pay sticker. I know beggars can't be choosers though.

The wedding is in the middle of nowhere in Washington state, taking it day of would be infeasible unfortunately (I have google mapped it to hell and couldn't find a way to make both happen on the same day)

I misread that post at first and was terrified that poor mikey was asking TLS to choose between a critical friendship and LS ambitions...not gonna like what TLS chooses in that case lol

Applied to be a tutor for Kaplan. Have to submit my audition tape tomorrow, so at least I have a chance of something good coming from blowing it on test day lol.

I'm with the line of thought in bold. I was debating adding September to get a higher score but really shoot for my 170+ in December but was told higher score beats later app (for my situation), especially if the score you're planning to get is beyond that school's 75%.

As a pretty extreme splitter, I think applying early with the lower school could get him dinged before the new score comes out
