HELP - International student

Post by FrenchMomo » Sun Jul 26, 2020 2:12 am

Hello everyone,

As an international student (No GPA, Foreign educated), I have some questions about the next cycle: I plan to retake the LSAT in October, and if my score is not as good as I want, I will also retake in January.

Do you think that it is a bad idea to submit my application this late as an international student, my apps being unusual?

Then, I have not yet received my CAS / AACRAO evaluation, I am a little worried because I have read in a few places that this evaluation center gave the mention "average" to many French students who take the same diploma than me. But there is my ranking on my transcripts (TOP 25%), do you think they take that into account? and also, in the worst case, what would be my chances of admission for the following criteria:
CAS evaluation: "Average" / LSAT 170 / Strong softs (From a persecuted minority, non URM, three language speaking)

Applying in January would indeed be a disadvantage.

In your shoes I would 1) apply right away this cycle, 2) retake the LSAT in October and/or January, and then 3) if you don't like how your cycle goes with the 170, and you've improved on the LSAT, you can reapply for the 2021-2022 cycle.
