what if you withdraw after you complete a semester and did poorly how does that work? say you withdraw in the spring. can you reapply to a new school in the fall to start over?
first of all, schools will want to know if you left your prior school in good academic standing, you can get a letter verifying this from your old registrar. i would just add an addendum in you apps stating you compelling interest to withdraw. i would not retake the lsat unless 1) you are not satisfied with you score, or 2)your score is no longer valid (5 yrs i think?)fwiw, i withdrew in my first semester. i did no have a problem reentering thr next year, nor did this issue come up when i transferred or obtained 2l summer work. also, i had a pretty compelling interest to withdraw.
