Re-negotiating due to higher LSAT score

Postby classix » Thu Feb 17, 2011 4:00 pm

Can anymore comment on this situation. I know I'm not the only person this has happened to.

I took the LSAT and got score X. With score X i got accepted to a bunch of schools with scholarships.

Knowing that I can get a score higher than X, I studied, and retook just now in February.

Given that I score X+5, which is roughly what I am expecting, will this increase scholarships schools are willing to give me? Will I have to renegotiate scholarships? Scores come back in 2 weeks. Admittedly, February is late in the cycle, but how can I leverage my higher score?

What do you think?

Yes you can leverage your higher score. Have LSAC send updated score reports to the schools.

a friend of mine had gotten into fordham, then took the test again and scored 3 points higher, resulting in fordham giving her a scholarship. so it happens. plus schools love high lsats!

Awesome! I'm assuming Fordham gave her the scholarship without her asking?
