Retake. Be disciplined. It sucks, but you got it. You only get one chance at life, maximize your opportunities.


Edit: Given you are Asian American, you need to retake. You are likely out of the whole t13 with your stats. You need to retake whether you want to or not.

Ah. In that case, you still have a great LSAT! But you should retake. I would say that you do have a shot at B even without the retake, but that will depend on how your final application materials look. I would apply this cycle and see how it goes. Do you have $$ to burn (i.e., will someone be paying the cost of LS for you, or will you be taking loans out?)

I've seen non-URMs with similar stats end up in the T14 with stats below both medians. You might as well apply if you're willing to go at sticker.

so I really really cant re-take it. This test has already sucked away my life and soul for the last two years

do you think applying early at Berkeley will help my chances?

I don't know. I wouldn't be shocked if you got into B though. You will likely be waitlisted from most--or all--of the T14. I would definitely keep expressing your interests in your reach schools, especially during the summer (i.e., June and July).

You can. You are literally making a life-changing decision that is awful if you dont. Unlike the other poster, I dont think you will get accepted from Berkeley. You are below everyone's medians at the t13. You aren't an URM, you are an overrepresented person without really good softs. You need to retake.

Honestly, just grow up and retake. The legal field is soul-sucking enough.

Is the reason you can't retake because you feel you've maxed out your potential in those two years of studying? Have you tried different approaches and methods to studying for it? Have you read up on study methods in the LSAT forum?

You're unlikely to get a T13 acceptance with your current profile, and if you did sneak in to B, you're paying $300k for the pleasure. I know studying for the LSAT sucks, but paying off that kind of debt is infinitely worse for a lot longer.

Doesn't Berkeley favor high GPAs?

They're just more holistic, black box-like for a lower T13, and when the candidate doesn't satisfy that holistic review, rely heavier on higher GPAs instead of LSATs. I got in to B with a lower GPA than OP and a slightly higher LSAT, and it probably wasn't either number that got me in.

Yeah last year's median GPA was a 3.79 for Berk.
