"do you plan on retaking the lsat"? on apps

"do you plan on retaking the lsat"? on apps
« on: September 06, 2005, 12:35:55 AM »
Most apps ask "Do you plan on retaking the LSAT?"  I am currently signed up to retake the LSAT in Oct., but I am answering NO to this question because there is a fair chance that I will actually NOT retake it, and I do not want for the schools to keep my file as "incomplete" while they are waiting for an October LSAT score to arrive.  Assuming I transmit my applications in mid-Sept., will the LSDAS report show that I am registered for the 10/1 LSAT, or will it ONLY show that I've taken the 6/1 LSAT?  In other words, will they know I'm re-registered to take it on 10/1 even if I say I don't plan on retaking it?

I ask because I need to know... If I end up not retaking it, will I need to notify the schools that I didn't retake it (even though I said I wasn't going to on my apps)?

Thanks.
