In:
GWU

Out:
T12, UT, UCLA

Georgetown

Waitlist:
Cornell, USC

Advice: ED UVA

LSDAS GPA: 3.9
LSAT Score: 1 cancel, 163 (Oct 2010--waiting on hand scoring)
URM Status: Not URM
UG Institution: University of California, Los Angeles
Work Experience: none post-college
Soft: Summer Judicial Extern for an LA County Superior Court Judge during undergraduate, Resident Assistant for 2 years in undergrad, interned at large pro-bono firm in LA
Regional Preferences: none
Targets/Reaches. Berkeley, UVA, Cornell, Duke, Michigan-- UCLA, USC, Vanderbilt

During September, my PT average was a 173, across about 15 tests. Should I seriously consider retaking in December? I felt pretty great about the October test, but it seems I overestimated my performance significantly. I'd be pretty saddened to have it happen again that way.

Thanks for your help.
