How bad does this hurt?

Postby jetsfan1 » Sat Dec 08, 2012 1:07 pm

Took the October LSAT probably not as prepared as I should've been- with school and all studying kinda got pushed to the backburner. Had PT'd at 168 on each of the last 4 tests I took before the real one, but I could tell I still had room for improvement (a couple stupid mistakes on each test, timing issues on games had to guess on a few, etc.). Took the October test and got a 162, completely messed up the games. I've decided to sit out this cycle, retake, and wait for next year but my question is how bad is that 162 gonna look for T14s (3.9 gpa) if I hit at least a 168 (or hopefully in the 170s) next time I take it? I've been told some average, some take highest. Thanks all.

Most schools aren't going to care about your lower score. Good luck!

I've taken the test multiple times and my first score was in the low 160s. So far Georgetown, Duke, Cornell, UCLA, Vanderbilt, and UT have only considered my high score despite what they might say about averaging. I didn't write an addendum either. Your "low" score won't matter.

No one except maybe Yale averages.
