September or December
« on: August 30, 2009, 02:11:23 AM »
I'm not new to the LSAT...scored a 154 in 2005. Long story, and I'm applying to schools again for next fall. I'm studying with powerscore's books now, and have just finished the RC and LR bibles. Taking practice sections individually, and without any attempt to further improve, I'm getting about -5 a section. I haven't even started the games, but those shouldn't be a huge problem for me.

I have nothing against either ramping it up and still taking it in September, or taking it in December. Would December hurt me in admissions in any way? My goal is 165, I'd obviously love to hit higher. It's especially crucial because I really could use some scholarship money.

Thanks :)
3.1 / 156

What are you waiting for?  Take a full test and see if you're anywhere near 165.

Also, all other things being equal, applying early is always better.

a 155 when applying in october looks better than a 160 when applying in january...

well sometimes...

schools admit on a rolling basis (first come first serve - if you meet their standards presumably), unless you are Good Will Hunting, then of course they will open a seat personally for you.

A 160 next October looks even better.
