Got the same score as in February. Need advice

Postby dlutfy » Wed Oct 11, 2017 7:35 pm

I got a 167 in February and a 167 in September. I somehow got -4 in games, which completely fucked up my score. I would have had a 171 otherwise. I even got a -1 in candor and I really improved my reading comp. It feels horrible that I choked in games and that negated all my improvement.

Do I go for another retake? I've literally used all the material and I've done several of the tests twice. I don't even know how I would proceed studying. I have a 3.93 GPA too so I don't want to waste it.

Aughhhh the lsat :cry:

Yes retake. Before I got my 175+ official score, I had taken every lsat from 1-70 at least twice, most three times. If you are diligent and don't attempt to predict the answer because you vaguely remember, then they are just as good.

Can't hurt to retake in December. You are right, you don't want to waste that GPA. It's probably a bit of a bummer right now, but it's not the end of the world. I say give it a shot again in December. You'll probably get waitlisted at some schools, especially if you are retaking, but a strong December test can hopefully get you off a couple if you are intent on attending next year. If not, keep retaking until you hit that 170+ and apply next summer

You should definitely retake. Don't waste that GPA if you don't have to.
