I guess I'm a little late, but I'll chime in anyway.


First of all, getting tier 1 with a 159 is possible, but probably only with URM status OR 3.7+ GPA.  I was auto-admit at SMU with 159/3.97 and I'm not a minority, so I'm thinking if you have a 3.6 you might get in, but later in the cycle, perhaps of the waitlist.  You might have a chance at Florida or Iowa too.

Second of all, if you're thinking about re-taking to make a 162, you shouldn't even re-take  You should only re-take if you're 99 percent sure you can improve, meaning you should probably feel good about making at least a 165.  The LSAT is fickle, you can't just turn on a switch and improve a couple points.  Gear yourself for a 10 point improvement, and you might end up with a 162.

Well the highest I've scored on a practice is 167. The rest were 162's except for the first few ive ever taken. Do you think i need to consistently score in the high 160's then to retake?

Well I'm assuming that the OP's GPA is at our around the median of lower T1s.


I'm not saying he shouldn't retake, I'm just saying he isn't restricted to T2.

EDIT: The OP has a 3.6 and is from Miami... I say he has an excellent shot at UF. And in-state is so cheap, that should trump $$$ at a T2.

I'm not from florida so i wouldnt get in state tuition anyway.

to schools like SMU and tier 2's? Would it be worth a retake just to gain a few points?

I took Testmasters for the June LSAT, ended up missing 12 on the 2 sections together. It helped for the most part but is there anything else there that would get my score higher for AR? I got the TM stratagies already, im lookin for some new perspectives.

Well I figured the earlier I apply the better chance of getting in, so if I take the October LSAT and didn't do better, it would hurt my chances even more. Also I won't have nearly the amount of time I had to study for the June LSAT when school is going on. And last, I wouldn't have much to pracice with because I already took all the recent tests to practice for the June LSAT.

What were your scores on the practice tests?

My best was a 167, the rest were in the lower 160s. Is it just normal to do better in practice diagnostics or do you think i could actaully do better than 159 in a retake?
