They said getting 2 points extra on the LSAT wouldn't help me as much as applying early. They said they already assume that candidates, for example, with a 164 could get a 166 on a good day. But, if you have taken the LSAT prior (this would be your third shot), there is even more of a reason to not retake. He said while they def take the highest score into MOST consideration, they do look at if you have a lower score sitting around (I do, and he said this can hurt you against a candidate with the same #s) so its even more important to apply early. IMO, apply, see if you get waitlisted (you clearly might just get in!) and then figure it out.
And I got the newsletter too but I wasn't worried bc its from Mr. Jake and I'm sure he doesn't personally send out decisions haha.
was the example they used 164 to 166, or you were just illustrating the point with that guys score? because 162-164, 163-165, and 164-166 are the 3 scores that have a 2 point jump and can affect their 75th percentile.
