Retaking

If you are retaking the LSAT in December and specify it on your app., will your file be on hold until they get your LSAT report?

Seems likely, although if it is on hold, it couldn't really be an automated hold, could it? Since they'd actually have to read the app to see you're retaking.

Why not? you enter your future test dates into OLSAS or any other electronic submission system such as the outdated UBC one or McGill's Minerva. You'd think they could automatically hold you if they really wanted to. But I don't think they would do that.

Yes that was my thinking also.

I don't think anywhere would reject you before receiving your new LSAT score if you indicate you're retaking though.

This is especially true of the Ontario schools (versus American schools). It seems like Canadian schools tend to be more willing to wait for LSAT scores, with their willingness to take February scores.
