I'd at least give yourself a 3rd shot and retake in June. You really don't have anything to lose by at least trying your third retake.

Will your job cover most of your tuition if you were to go PT?

Where do you want to work?

Why should op retake. They have a 3.1 (over a b average), and 155 lsat. Fordham owes them an acceptance. I hate how admissions are soo racist these days.

There should be a filter for anyone who chooses tars or names related to Ari Gold.

FAIL! :roll: OP has every right to assert his/her case for getting off the WL, and the schools can and will listen.

First, tests don't accurately measure or predict much, as evidenced by the number of TTT 1L's (from all backgrounds) with lower LSAT's who go on to perform very well at their schools and transfer into the T14. If the LSAT really predicted everyone's 1L abilities, that wouldn't be possible. Secondly, a 3.1 at one school and in certain majors may be similar to a 3.6 at a different school in a different major. So you have no idea how stellar or unimpressive OP's UG performance is/was.

You need to check your attitude. I know people with even lower LSAT's that made the T14 and blew the competition out of the water. The proof is in the doing, not the testing. That LSAT measures little besides how fast one can read and how one manages stress. To a lesser degree it measures how one organizes and strategizes. Clearly, if OP is telling the truth about practice scores, "test anxiety" is the culprit. The LSAT is a learned skills test; there are no innate abilities necessary to do well. It is over-weighted by admissions committees, which is why the test is going to be phased out in a few years.

wouldn't hurt to retake in june. If you do better, wait a year, apply early etc. If you don't do better...go, if you must.

My problem is not mastering that test, it's curtailing my stress the night before/day of. The stress/pressure augments every year, since more is weighing on my performance. "I took a year off, this time it ought to be better" and finally the night before, all that anxiety culminates to failure. It is what it is everyone. Thank you for the advice but Im not going to retake.[/color]


What's going to prevent you from stressing out during a law school final when your entire grade rests on a single test? If you can't get over your own stress for the LSAT it seems like a very risky move to attend a graduate program (law school) where tests are everything.

Especially with numbers that dictate OP will be going to a school where not finishing in the top third of the class is extremely risky.
