3.98/167

Postby esther0123 » Wed Nov 20, 2013 12:53 pm

I registered for December retake and didn't send in apps yet... but should I? I was told that they wont look at my apps until my Dec score rolls in but wondering if that would put me at significant disadvantage.

Having said that, I'm mainly interested in T-8 ish, and I realize my LSAT is not ideal :(
But what can I get based on these numbers?

PS is pretty good with unique story, decent EC, and Canadian (I hope this isn't too much of a negative).

Pretty good shot at Chicago, NYU, Berkely and down.

Besides law school admissions, I don't know how you live with yourself.

You have a good shot. But retake for scholarship money.

Haha, i know, eh? (did you see what I did there!)

Just to clarify, good shot whereabouts exactly? and yes.... I really should retake... but who knows if I'll improve :S

The disadvantage to applying late-ish is not significant enough to justify not retaking that score. Gotta get those scholarship monies, though.

If you don't get enough money from the T14 this cycle, wait until next year and ED to NU.

Good shot at T6, likely at T10.

And even if you don't improve, it was worth it because school don't care. It's all about expected value (AKA: if there is a small percentage shot of you improving, due to the scholarship possible increases, it was worth the retake regardless of end result).

And don't ED to NU. I'm sure you could get higher with these numbers with an ED to Penn, but not 100% sure.

ED NU is a vastly preferable outcome to sticker at Penn

Do you think I should just submit my apps now (and just make a note somewhere that I'm retaking)? It's pretty much ready to go.

Oh, I forgot about the full ride is tied to ED now. But would OP even be competitive for that?

And yes, just submit. LSAC lets them know you have an exam pending.

Alrighty. Will my application just be held until January? I'm just worried about it being rejected right out even before my December score comes out :S

Retake. That's the focus. Don't worry about anything else. You don't have to go next year and you shouldn't until you get that score up.

Retake, one year is nothing if its worth $100k.

Shoot for 99% percentile and the scholarships will be flowing in.
