Need advice please comment
« on: October 17, 2009, 02:46:25 PM »
I just got my lsat results back and it was far below anything i could imagine. I scored less than 150. I know im capable of 155-163 range. Therefore, I have to retake in it december. Everything else is pretty strong. But this lsat score I feel is the death of all my ambitions. Since many law schools are rolling admissions, I think I'm just as screwed for waiting till January to have my application file complete even though it will be much stronger later than it is now. Am I wrong? Do I still have a chance later in the cycle? Or should I find a new plan and forget about law school? I was really hoping to apply ED but I can't now. So if someone knows of others that had similar situations please respond. Thanks

Why not sit out a year?  Rather than rush into a late application...I decided to take the test comfortably and be one of the first ones in the door October 2010.  It's only a year away til this process starts all over again...and LSAT scores are acceptable by most up to 2 or 3 years out.

This.  Study your ass off for 7 months then kill the June test.
