Nova Southeastern / NSU application under review. 151 LSAT and 2.87 GPA...
« on: February 01, 2011, 12:04:14 PM »
I am planning on retaking the LSAT this month and believe I can score closer to a 156.  My question is, should I have my application pulled from review and then have it resubmitted once my Feb. score is released? 

I am worried that by letting the review board make a decision now, I may be accepted for the AAMPLE program.  I believe I can petition to have the board review my application again if my score is significantly higher.  Obviously, I'd rather not have to do the AAMPLE.

So, I just checked and my application is in the hands of the review board - I need to make a decision quickly and have not gotten much help from my admissions advisor.  Any helpful suggestions will be much appreciated.

Thanks, and please save your comments about retaking the LSAT for the following cycle.  I have heard this suggestion already many times and have already considered it.

Thank you.

p.s. Out of college 5 years with decent work experience/personal statement

Where should I go next fall? / 2.87 GPA Waiting on Dec. score...

Hey, just looking for some feedback.  I have a 2.87 GPA. -Cancelled my October score -Waiting on December score -Registered for Feb. test.

My PTs ranged around 155 but I have a bad feeling I bombed the Dec. test.  So I signed up for February. 

I live in S. Florida.  Graduated from IU-B about 5 years ago w/ decent resume, LOR's and Personal Statement.

Before taking the Dec. test I felt if I scored high compared to my PTs (156), of the schools I am interested in:

FIU - reach; Nova - target; St. Thomas - safety.

Still have not applied but everything is ready, just need to proof read basic application info.

Question: Considering my GPA, what should my Dec. LSAT score be at the lowest to use for those schools?

For example, if it is a 150, I may use it for St. Thomas and maybe Nova but I will tell FIU to hold off for the Feb. test results.

FIU: ?
Nova: ?
St. Thomas: ?

Thanks
