LS now or later? does it hurt to apply now and get rejected?

LS now or later? does it hurt to apply now and get rejected?
« on: October 28, 2005, 10:52:54 PM »
I wanted to know say I apply to LS now and get rejected, would that hurt me for the future if say I decided to go and do a masters, possibly pull up the gpa and then retake the LSAT. If then applying to the same schools but with higher numbers, would the fact that I already applied once and got rejected affect the new decision?

Getting rejected usually factors in if you have not substantially improved your application. If you were a crappy candidate, and improved to a mediocre one, you should probably still expect a ding.

It is a good idea to get your GPA as high as you can. Your masters GPA will carry less weight than your UGPA.
