Congrats to everyone who received good news (and good luck to everybody else)!!

First time poster here, but y'all seem pretty awesome from the threads i've read through so far, so i was hoping to get some advice! I'm re-taking in February and don't know whether I should let schools know (in the effort of avoiding a potential ding) or whether I should just wait it out in order to avoid dooming my app to the forgotten pile until march/april? (submitted late november, 3.9, strong softs, international (non-english-speaking country)

Any input would be much appreciated - thanks!

It kinda depends on how bad your first LSAT was... And which schools we're taking about because a few specifically refuse to look at February LSAT scores

I'm actually in the same position. Their system is synced with LSAC, so they already know that you'll be taking the test. NYU confirmed that their policy is to hold these apps until the Feb LSAT score is released. Haven't contacted Columbia about their policy though. I think it might be the same, but you can ask and double-check.

Thank you! I think this can give hope to retakers since it's more proof that there is no way they average. My average is a 172.

97th percentile, so not awful but not great either - and I was mainly interested in Columbia, Harvard, and potentially Chicago since I'm already in at NYU. Do you know anything about their policies? Thanks!

Thanks! I wasn't sure they knew since LSAC hasn't sent any additional reports, but that's good to know. Good luck!

They know you're retaking. They're not gong to risk dinging you before that score comes.


haha that's good..i guess? In that case let the extra-long wait begin ugh. Thanks so much for the info!

Please contribute :) If you're concerned about anonymity, fudge your numbers a bit - most people do, and the fudging cancels out (I know kappycaft1 won't like me saying this). Plus, unless you're a 2.5/180, there are probably lots of people who have the same numbers as you. AdComms don't have the time to browse LSN or these forums to any significant degree, and even if they did, and went through the effort to try to track down an applicant, I don't think they would ever, ever, ever let that affect your application unless they were 100% positive the two matched up. So just make sure you're not putting up your address and phone number and name.

On another note, nothing seems to be here for me :( But I could (though it's unlikely) theoretically get an email about a package for a few more hours.

Congrats to all the new admits though! Hopefully Columbia thinks I'm a special snowflake soon too!

If I don't get anything by the end of the week, I'm assuming waitlist or "forgotten" :/

Nothing in NC today. 177/3.89, Master's degree. In at Harvard already, but would take Hamilton in a heartbeat. Submitted my app on 11/15; all of these NCEs are making me start to worry.

How do we know if we got scholarship? Is there letter in the packet with admission offer or do we log into ASW?
