The Retake

Postby AaronCarter » Thu Nov 23, 2017 1:44 pm

Hey All,

I've been having a decent cycle so far, but I'm starting to realize I'm going to need a couple more points to have a shot at serious money. I'm planning for the Feb take.

For those of you with experience, do schools still have much money left over in March for those applicants scoring above their 75ths/medians?

Also, I haven't touched an LSAT book/problem since early September. Any tips on getting back into the swing of things?

Scholarship negotiation usually continues into the summer, although of course that money slowly dries up over time. Things really start turning the corner in April once everybody has their decisions back and schools start playing musical chairs with their waitlists. If you show up with a higher LSAT in March you gain valuable leverage (the implicit threat is that you might wait out your cycle for a better school), and going from below-median to above-median is especially nice because it makes you materially more valuable for them to have you.
