I have no business talking about T14s, but I do want to know what happens between Rutgers-Newark and Seton Hall. I applied to both, and I'm interested to see if SH will keep its better ranking.

Also, UPitt...I know it went down in the rankings last year. After being shocked to see that I got accepted at all, I would love to see it go back up.

I haven't heard of any of those, but I personally have full faith in Drexel.

WL'd @ RU-Camden. Ouch.

Well, at least if you go to Michigan you can be fellow alum with Ann Coulter! Now that's just exciting.  :D

Where should I go next fall? / Re: LSAT Advice, Please?

Yeah, my chances of getting Brooklyn scholarship money, more or less admission at this point, are nil unless I kick some serious butt on the LSAT. I think that having my application go complete in early March, even with a slightly improved score, might present some problems. I wonder if I would just be better off lifting the hold on it and telling them to evaluate it as is, since I already paid to apply.

In response to latenitesession: Yes, I'm afraid that I will bomb it, but since the acceptances I do have can't be revoked (I think?) this shouldn't be that big of a problem. I'm guessing most of my decisions will be back from other schools by the time my new score shows up on LSAC anyway, so the only decision a bad score would affect is Brooklyn's.

I think I'm leaning more toward taking it, and canceling the score before I leave if I think I completely tanked.

So, here's the story. I took the LSAT in Sept, got a 158, and was semi-disappointed. My practice scores were all in this range, however, so I guess I couldn't have expected much higher. In January, after applying to Brooklyn Law, I got a letter from them urging me to retake the test, as my score falls slightly below their average. I told them to hold my application, and signed up for the February test.

Fast forward a couple weeks, and let's just say that I haven't practiced and do not feel confident that my score will improve enough to be accepted there. If I were to get in with a 158, the $50,000+ yearly expense would be a huge issue for me. After just getting into Rutgers Newark, one of my top choices, I am hesitant about retaking for several reasons:

1- I don't think I have a great shot of improving
2- By the time my score will come in, it will be late February and my chances for admission to Brooklyn will be lowered (even with a slight improvement)
3- I don't think I can afford the school if I don't get money to go there

So, basically there is a chance my score could go up. By some miracle, I could earn a 165 and get money to attend schools who do want me. However, that chance is so-so.

In my place, would you retake the LSAT, submit your application as-is to Brooklyn, or withdraw from Brooklyn?

I apologize for this long-winded post, but I'm pretty confused about this...  :-\
