Studying for the LSAT / Retake a third time?
« on: December 31, 2005, 09:31:03 PM »
Situation: scored a 159 in OCT (misbubble - should have cancelled) and 165 in DEC. Testing around low 170's. 4.0 GPA. I am not applying until next cycle.

I don't see dropping my average (161 or better keeps my average at 162). I would like to up my average, but I have seen some information that schools who will consider the high score with an addendum on two automatically average with three or more. Also, does anyone think that scoring, say a 163 or 164 would hurt those that might overlook the 159? Plus, hell, the scale may look like -3 for a 170 by June.

I was viewing past posts on LSD (yeah I know - too much time on my hands) and the earliest I can document last December's test being released was at 5:30et on the 23, that would have been a Thursday. I also found that the year before it was released on 12/31. Does that indicate today or tomorrow?

Studying for the LSAT / Updated Docs

LSAC just updated my doc line to read 1/3. They did this in October the day before the release. I'm not sure if this is a normal practice or not ..not sure what it means.

Studying for the LSAT / Advise? DEC vs. FEB for retake
« on: October 23, 2005, 06:17:18 PM »
  Screwed up. I misbubbled the RC and had to go back. I wasn't sure that I had rebubbled correctly. I was averaging 168-175 on pt's, but knew that I was probably sitting between a worse case of 161 and a best case of 166. I knew I should have cancelled but let curiosity and unfounded optimism get the best of me. Results sucked. I guessed on the last five RC and the last five LG and went o for 10. Final: LR (52/52) That's right aced it. LG's (17/22). realized it was easy and screwed it up anyhow. The killer - RC (7/26). Badly messed up the re-bubble for a disasterous 159. Luckily this was good enough for my immediate needs. I am in a 3+3 program that will allow me to start UALR Law School next Fall as long as I have a 158 on the LSAT and a 3.5 GPA. My GPA is currently a 4.0 and the 159 qualifies me, but I have no desire to go to UALR. My heart is sort of set on Cornell, who mercifully takes high score. I don't actually, therefore, have to apply until next year. The question is do I go ahead and retake in DEC or is their any disadvantage or advantage to waiting for the FEB exam. I know they don't release any info except for the score in FEB (no scale, no responses, no test book). Any info would be appreciated, especially if anyone has ever taken a FEB test.
