absolutely agree. but i can honestly say that i wasn't ready to apply this cycle and gave it my 60% effort applying deadline for the entire top 18 and was surprised to get waitlisted at columbia, penn, cornell, georgetown, and uva. so it makes me wonder what re-taking, giving my 100% on apps, and applying early might do. i want to believe i have some strong softs and although i figured i wasn't URM (im Filipino), some schools are treating me as one. but yeah, i realize it'll be tough given my crap GPA.
Well 3.3 gpa is not good but if you can retake and get your LSAT up to 170, I don't think your GPA is going to hold you back that much.
haha hope you're right. obviously PT's don't make a difference but I was PT-ing in the 175 range and ended up choking on the real thing with a 168. I also am an LSAT instructor so figured teaching it might make sure I keep my skills sharp. Although I won't lie, my GPA is making me re-think withdrawing. Who knows. I might not be as lucky next cycle and completely screw myself over.
