I'm registered for the February LSAT, and today I got an email from Columbia saying that, given my plans to retake in February, they assume I'm requesting an exception to their policy of only accepting administrations up to December. In order for them to grant that exception, I would have to submit a written request, and the review of my application would be delayed.
My plan is to write back and ask them to proceed with the review of my application.
I have a 3.6, 173, which, I'm thinking, could be waitlist territory at Columbia. I was hoping that a higher score on the Feb LSAT might give me some little bump and help me get off that waitlist, should I land there. I'm willing to give it a shot, in any case. Any thoughts?
Here's my tale just for future reference. I signed up for the Feb LSAT after applying to Columbia in late Dec. Unlike the above poster they never sent me an email about the Feb LSAT, and I didn't tell them to hold my app for the score. They reviewed with my Dec LSAT score and put me on the waitlist (as I expected). Now it's just a matter of seeing what my Feb LSAT score is and hoping it might be enough to bump me from the waitlist.
Score comes in about a week. Fingers crossed!
