I'm not trying to be pessimistic or anything, but I just haven't been scoring where I should be on my PTs. That being said, in the case that I don't score well on my October LSAT, should I retake in December, or will that be too late? I know they won't look at my application until they get my December score if I indicate that I am retaking in December, so I just wanted to see what you guys thought about this. I've already talked to the UF admissions people and they basically just told me how the process worked but didn't really give me any advice about it. Hopefully I will do awesome on the test the first time and not have to retake it but I would just like to have a plan B in case things don't go the way I want them to. UF is my top choice and I'm not willing to give it up just because of this test.
See what you get and then make a decision. If you do well enough to get in, keep the score. If you think you need to retake, then do it! I know someone who got in last year who applied late in January If I don't get in somewhere I will be happy going, I am retaking in December too (or maybe February) to use it to get moved from a WL, or whatever I may need to happen. I'm assuming, of course, that you do not have any LSAT score right now.
