I have a ton of questions and thought it best to ask here.
I got a 160 on the dec LSAT after 157 in Sept. I am 3.6/160 from UW-Madison which is also my top choice for school. I know they do show preference to an extent for instate students; however, I am concerned that this late in the cycle and by the time I get my app in I will most likely get dinged/ or at least waitlisted. So would I be put at a huge disadvantage if I got dinged this cycle and then re-applied next fall again super early? Would they look at my app again jaded? Basically I would love to apply and have a shot this cycle but not necessarily if it would really kill me next fall.
any ideas or general thoughts? thanks a lot everyone.
I think you should definitely apply. I had a 157 last year and applied right at the deadline and ended up getting waitlisted. I didn't get off the waitlist, but from my experience I definitely think you at least have a shot. I've also heard that Wisconsin somewhat favors people who reapply, so it might actually help you next year if you apply this year and don't get in.
Good luck to all you other 160-164ers. I have a 162/3.64 and am a glutton for punishment by applying to way too many reaches. Lets all hope they like soft factors. I keep saying that I will be way more proud of myself for getting into Stanford with a 162 than with a 170+ because it means they actually like me and not just my test score!
