I am now trying to decide if it is best to retake to LSAT in Feb. for apps this admissions cycle.
I have a 156/3.47 UGPA
My LSAT is about 4 points lower than I expected, ruling many of the schools I applied to out.
But my question is, is it even worth it to retake in Feb.? My practive average was around a 163, I expected a drop in my real score, thinking 159-160 was realistic. If I do retake at get a 160ish, then my average raises only a few points...
Pros of retaking:
My score sucks, and it would be nice to have an (even slightly) higher one
I had not taken any prep courses or used the bibles, so I think if I got the powerscore stuff, it might help a lot
Always the possibility of making the same or a lower score
Only a month of prep, and my schools for me starts again on Jan 2, so I would realistically only have 2 hours/day to study for the LSAT.
It will be March by the time the schools get the new score.
I think I have some shot at a few of the schools I applied to with my current score, and no shot at all to some of the others. I don't have any one top choice; I would be thrilled to go to any of the schools I applied to.
So, what do y'all think? Retake or let my current score ride?
