I'm finding it really hard to find motivation for this retake. Ugh.

I'm waiting out this cycle so that my gf and I can move together once she finishes nursing school!
*I'm also enjoying the extra time before getting locked into the full time school/career track :P

Until then I don't mind retaking

Funny that the June 2018 group seems to have more activity.

Props to us for taking the road less taken!

I was PT-ing in the high 160s low 170s before the December LSAT and had an incredibly bad test-day.
I'm wondering how February looks for this current cycle. Does it lower my chances substantially? I'm worried that it may be better just to go with whatever score I get from December and use the fee waivers currently available to me.

Checking in!

This will be my first LSAT I'll take and I plan on applying this cycle. I know, extremely late. But I will try to use that as motivation to study even harder in knowing that I need to score really high. Anyone in the same scenario as me?

Got all my study prep ready and will start studying today. Logical Reasoning Bible will be what I tackle first. Actually looking forward to it lol.

Good luck to everyone taking the test!

May I ask why? A lot of schools wont even take Feb scores and even for the ones that do it is significantly harder to get in than it is if you apply earlier on. Studying hard and getting a really high score is great but if schools wont even look at it until the next cycle you may be severely hamstrung.

Ya you should rethink. This cycle is so competitive that showing up that late to the party is disasterous. Join me for next cycle.

Ummm. yea, for the two that are applying this cycle with Feb as the first score you're shooting yourselves in the foot. A lot of the T14 schools require a score prior to Feb in order to ask them to consider a Feb score. Plus applying that late means limited seats left. You're much better off delaying until next year's cycle and applying on Day 1.

I feel the same way but I'm already annoyed at being home and not in school. I also feel stuck in life right now too :(

If you think the score you’re waiting on (december) won’t meet the minimum requirement, should you apply with that score just so your app isn’t late? Or should I register for february and score higher?

I think the way it works is you apply now with the score you have and email the schools you are applying to about the feb test. Tell them that you would like for them to hold off on the final decision on your application until after feb scores

Scored my first perfect LG section today. An indivual section, not on a PT, but felt good regardless.

Just got my December score. Needless to say, I signed up for the February LSAT immediately afterward. Heres to a better showing in February!

Pleasantly surprised by my December 2017 showing.

I don’t want to fall into complacency, but I am very, very much looking forward to February.
