I probably should have made it more clear but I'm talking about re-taking in October. I know no one likes hypotheticals, but I'm assuming (which I shouldn't) I improve to at least a 170. I know my chances in the T-14 with 169 are pretty dismal, and I could easily strikeout at all those reaches I mentioned.


Haha fair enough. I think that's a wise decision. Everything depends on a few more points & june was SHITTY curve



No need to remind me :cry: . If I had guessed the last two LG questions different, this thread would never exist. I think the chance of doing just one or two points better, and the long-term effect it could hold for me make retaking in October a given.

Does the 2 years WE make a difference for NU, or it more just that it's a requirement and not a boost?

It's a requirement, unless you have insane numbers

Also, Temple was fairly stingy with financial aid last year, so I wouldn't expect anything close to a full ride as a splitter.

I got a fee waiver from there and Villanova, so at first I figured I would apply but to be honest, I have zero desire of working in Philly. At this point, plan is improve LSAT by a few points, and break into the T-14. With some family help to assist with debt, it seems like the best (only) option for my goals.
