Take LSAT during gap year before uni?
Posted: Fri Aug 21, 2020 12:56 pm
I'm on a gap year (thanks corona) before going to uni, took an old LSAT for the first time (June 2007), and got a 166 - I've always been pretty good at standardized testing. I'm deciding whether I should prep for and take the LSAT during my gap year - I have a lot of free time and could fit 20-25 hours a week for 4-5 months of prep. Also, I'm in a 3 year course for uni so I'd be applying to law school in winter of 2024 (three year gap if I took the LSAT in winter 2021). If I can get my score up to 175+ consistently, is this worth doing? In other words, would law schools not count the score as much because I took it before uni? I figured it just might be easier for me to take it now because I know I'll be pretty busy during the year and during breaks once I'm a full time student. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
