I'm not credible by any means. But based on ranking I'd say UCLA&USC- in or WL/in. Not sure about Vandy or UT at all., depends on if your essays convinced them you'd attend if admitted. They might YP but I have no clue. Notre Dame- in

Out at USC and UT. Waitlisted at Notre Dame, UCLA, and Vanderbilt.

Pretty poor advice in this thread. Every option you listed you are out at. Mostly likely straight ding, no waitlist. TCR is retake, don't waste your gpa on a 162.

Well I was scoring between 166 and 172 the last 2 weeks before the second time I took it then on the real test in October I just choked. I already applied to those schools so I'm just going to see what happens and if I don't get anything I like then I will retake the LSAT.


TCR = the credited response.

If you were averaging that, yank all of your apps now. Study harder, get 175+ in June and then go to YSH or the T14 of your choosing for free. Look at it this way, 5 months of studying could get you $100k+ and great employment opportunities.

Yank em, there is no reason to keep them in. Plus you could potentially get into a decent school at sticker and be tempted to enroll, which would be objectively shitty.

OP, that is a pretty decent drop on test day. You should definitely retake. Even a 166 would make a huge difference.

I did a couple things to help me with nerves on test day. First, I made sure to take practice exams in sub-optimal conditions (cafes, libraries with decent distractions, etc.). More importantly, I gave myself less time per section, e.g. 30 minutes for games or 32 minutes for LR/RC. This second tricked helped me quite a bit. If you know you have an extra 3 minutes you'll be less liable to panic/get anxious on test day. Both might be worth trying if you haven't already.

Retake, score in the 175+ range and then enjoy HYS or at least a very good scholarship at lower T14s. Don't waste that GPA.

Bad idea.
