All of my applications became complete in early-mid November. I just took the December LSAT, but have not notified any of the schools yet because I'm worried that calling more attention to my retake (third LSAT overall, including one cancellation) is not a good idea. On the other hand, it would be unfortunate to get rejected before they get the new, potentially higher score.
My reasoning for not informing them is that few schools actually reject people before January, unless their gpa/lsat is way below their average. I'm confident that this is not a big problem for me, except at HYS. I figure a higher score will definitely be noticed regardless. I'm pretty sure my score will not be lower - if it is, certainly not by more than a point or so.
Does this make sense?
