Hello everyone. I'm a regular poster on the Pre-law board, but thought the experienced students might be able to help with this:) I am a senior at KU with a 3.87 gpa and psych and soc major. I had been practicing with lsats around 170 and 171 for the past month. However, I screwed up on Sat. It really, really sucks. My top schools are UT, Georgetown, Duke, and Virginia. With the lsat score I would receive, there is no way I could make it to one of those schools. So, I am thinking of canceling and retaking in Dec. My score will not be available until Jan. 4th. I can have all of my apps ready besides that.
However, I am worried that applying that late will really hurt me. I have heard that some schools might have as much as 75% of their class chosen by then. I was wondering if anyone had any insight on this. Any advice would really, really help. I am so worried that I won't be able to get into those schools applying so late. I will be focusing on the lsat for the next 2 months and hope to be able to push my average up to the mid 170s, but everyone seems to score a little lower on the real thing.
Please help:) And thanks in advance.
