fair enough I just am tired of hearing "well raise your lsat score" it's kind of like "oh yeah no crap". I think most people figure this out on their own.
Most people realize that a higher LSAT score will help their chances. I also think that a lot of people do not realize that adequate preparation can enable them to drastically increase their score. From what I have read online a lot of people have prepared marginally, scored below where they want to be, then resign themselves to not being able to achieve a higher score and settling for the schools that are in their range.
It may be a fruitless endeavor to pursue a retake, but the downside is usually minimal compared to the possibilities and there are numerous anecdotes on this forum of people who pushed their scores up 5-10 points because they did study. I think it is good advice to give and is one of the few things, if not the only thing, that a lot of us can do that will have a significant impact on our chances of acceptance at certain schools at this stage.
