Anecdotally, if you've been rejected before, you're pretty much done, right?


This is the first I have heard of this anecdotal evidence. I mean, it is likely you will be rejected again if nothing changed, but a 10 pt LSAT bump etc. could change things.

Has anyone gotten their admission packet in the mail yet? I confirmed my address day of admission, but I still haven't received mine after 10 days.

Obviously I will never expect to be in a js2 wave, but there must be some amount of time I can expect to NOT be in one right?

Check the spreadsheets from this year and last. They will give an idea of wait time. :)

last year's average on TLS was 7 weeks from js1 --> js2

Last year there was a js2 wave in mid Jan, mid Feb, mid March

3.6, 173... feb retake pending....

would the right move for me to be:

request that my application be put on hold until new score is in?

go forward with review now?

I think i might have gotten a 175-177, but really can't be sure. so hard to tell

personally, i would be to simply notify them that you retook the February LSAT. i don't think any of us truly know how it works on their end, but intuitively i don't think that requesting a hold would improve your chances over a simple notification (which gives them the option to review your app now and recognize you're a strong candidate with a 173, or decide to hold it and wait for your score).

just my two cents, based off of nothing more than what i would do if i was in your position.

I also retook in Feb and asked them to hold my app. My original LSAT was lower than yours (170) but my GPA is higher (3.9). I did have a JS1 already, but I didn't expect to get an answer any time soon because I was a borderline candidate, so I figured there was no harm in waiting, but it would SUCK to be rejected before getting my (potentially higher) new score. So I'd say--ask them to hold it. You're not going to miss out on a scholarship for being accepted later, and quite honestly a LOT of people don't get in until the end of March anyway, which is after the Feb scores will be out.

Maybe if I lurk around campus more they'll toss me a JS1 to cut down on the campus police budget

He mentioned he has a 3.6 so it would make sense to retake.
