What do you guys think about re-applying next year solely because of the new policy? Good idea/bad idea? Is it something that those of you with multiple LSAT scores would consider doing? Why or why not?

Thanks! :)

That's kind of a big risk isn't it?  Have any of your preferred schools already said that they were going to follow the ABA "suggestion"?

I haven't emailed them directly but some people on this board have & some of my preferred schools said they would take the highest score according to the ABA's new suggestion. Of course, I would email the schools directly to find out for sure before making such a serious decision. At this time I am just contemplating re-applying & wondering if anyone else is in the same boat.

San Diego basically told me that they're undecided on the issue. 



That sucks. How unhelpful.

I have 2 LSAT scores that most law schools which I applied to averaged into one pretty average LSAT score. However, due to the ABA's "suggestion" that law schools take the highest LSAT score (& the fact that many law schools appear willing to do so), I am now seriously considering waiting a year & re-applying. I think that I'd have a much better chance of getting into a Southern CA tier 2 of my choice if those schools took my highest LSAT score.

I know everyone here is pretty much only concerned with t14 schools, but I have e-mails from SMU, San Diego, Santa Clara, Pepperdine, Davis, and Houston, so anyone who needs "proof" can holler at me.

I would also like to elaborate on the UCLA situation, since there seems to be some confusion about their new policy.  The lady told me that they will continue to average scores, but if the applicant has a 10+ point jump, then they can submit a letter explaining why they improved and why the higher score should count.

What did San Diego say?

I actually signed a lease. But it seems unreasonable to pay for the entire year when I don't even stay there for one night

If you signed a lease, my experience is that most places make you find someone to replace you. If you can't find someone to replace you, then you have to pay the rent until you do.

Not necessarily.  I think people can be called off the waitlist all the way up until school begins but from my conversation with the admissions office, it seems as though a majority of the remaining spots will be handed out next week.

I wonder how that can be. I was under the impressions that the waitlist letter that was sent in the mail was not due until July 17th. If this is the case, they are going to start pulling people off the waitlist before the deadline for the second waitlist letter. That is kind of hard to believe....

Does anyone else LOVE outlook calendar now (after being forced to use it @ work)? I use it at home now too because I like it so much. Although I have to admit, my sister's ical is much cooler.

I'm obsessed big time. I programmed all my friends' birthdays into it at home and rely on it heavily for reminders about things, because I forget anything and everything that I'm supposed to do.

I've put my friends' birthdays in too. I'm totally obsessed with it now too.
