Law School Admissions / Caneling the LSAT before the test date
« on: October 30, 2004, 09:14:32 PM »
I took the Oct 04 LSAT and am not happy with my score, I'm currently signed up for the Dec 04 LSAT which I intend to cancel on Monday.  I'm going to retake the LSAT a few years down the road.  Would this hurt me in the admissions process later on?  In other words, would it look bad?  Will they even see that I canceled my Dec test?

Law School Admissions / An LSAT score expires in how long?

Is it three years?  Meaning If i took Oct 2004, I get a clean slate Oct 2007?

What about tier 4 graduates that start out making 50k?

Gotcha thanks!

Yeah a 3.0 isn't ideal but its not that bad. If you can score 3 or 4 points higher than a school's 75th percentile...they are going to over look that. Just bust your ass on the LSAT and then write a bull PS about how you realized your love for the law after ugrad, went to grad and realized your academic potential and how you beleive your new grad gpa and lsat show your ability to suceed in law school more than the ugrad.

So going to grad school isn't necessarily a bad decision in my case correct?

can I?

Since I already have my score and things together, I think I might just apply this cycle for fun.

Best strategy would be to take the next year and get a good job (WE counts in admissions) do the grad school at night and take a class and study for the LSAT and do well on it. If you can take care of all that at once.

It really depends on how intense you are about getting to law school, what your goals are etc. For instance, if you can do well  on the LSAT you can still get into a school....the best way to downplay your ugpa would be to get a grad degree, do well and get some years of WE...then the ugpa will count for less. But it will always be there. Either way doing well on the LSAT is the most important thing for you.

What was your ugpa btw? What major, hard school?

I've already taken Testmasters, I got a 154 because I had to pee during section 3 and lost concentration.  I felt good about the games section that day, and that it would make up for it so I didn't cancel.  I ended up nailing the games, but really screwed up section 3.  I signed up to retake this December, but since the test is the weekend before finals, I've been rethinking about it. I usually score at least 5+ points higher.  So now, I want to go to grad school, study my ass off for the lsat, and get that stellar score.

I see.  So is it worth going to grad school?  Or should I just tough it out at a tier 3/4?

You would be better off paying for an LSAT prep course (testmasters or powerscore... NOT KAPLAN OR PR).

does anyone disagree?
