3.7, 160 - what do?

Postby Eric475 » Sat Oct 30, 2010 1:04 pm

I'm a current senior and i realllly wanna go to law school next year because I really would have nothing to do in a year-off situation.

My cold diagnostic was a 159, my PT average was a 165. So needless to say I'm a bit dissappointed with my october score.

Schools I really want to get into include BC and Fordham, BU or Vandy would be awesome too. What are my chances like with my current score?

Should i re-take in december and apply this cycle late? Or should I give it a try with my current score. I've already put a lot of time into studying but maybe more is required.

Thanks guys and girls

as a side note, when is the registration deadline for the december test?

outside chance at schools like bc/bu/fordham/emory/nd/uiuc/wustl/davis/hastings/gw.

Apply to every school in that range!
Hopefully you hit something.

You could always apply now and retake in December, then LSAC will update your files.

That's a pretty solid idea; will schools not make a decision on my application if they see that I'm registered for another LSAT (unless they'd let me in with the 160)?

You should call/email your schools and ask. It can vary depending on the school.
