Terrible LSAT--Retaking in Feb?
« on: October 26, 2008, 09:31:02 AM »
I dont think I will have enough time to study for december. February is a safer bet. I got a 155 on my first lsat and I still want a 162-168. If I retake in Feb, can I still get into law school for  the fall 2009 semester?

Yeah you'd get in somewhere, but probably not at the places you would get into with a 165 if you applied in October.

I wouldn't even try.  You shut the door on so many opportunities for admission and scholarships by applying so late.  I would take Feb or June and apply early next cycle.
