Retake and Apply procedure?

Retake and Apply procedure?
« on: August 17, 2006, 04:27:43 PM »
I already have my LSAT score and want to apply early.  How can I do this if i plan to retake  in september?  Can I send my apps and notify the law school that my new lsat score is on the way?  Or do I have to wait for the results of the september test to be processed?

When the law schools pull your application from LSAC, there will be a notice on there indicating that you are scheduled to retake the LSAT. However, some on here in the past have had experiences where the school either didn't care or didn't get notified that the student was going to retake the LSAT. In either event, you should simply add an addendum to your application indicating that you are planning to retake the LSAT and WHY you are retaking the LSAT. If you know you will kill it the second time, let the ad comm know why the first score was a fluke.
