It seems like a lot of people here give good advice, so hopefully someone can help me out here. I took the LSAT in Sept. and basically bombed it. My average practice test was around 164-165, but I ended up scoring a 157. On the first logic game of the test I copied one of the rules down incorrectly, which caused me to answer 6 questions wrong and by the time I realized my error I didn't have enough time to go back and correct the problems. I also misread many of the LR problems and made a lot of stupid errors. Basically I was really nervous and I'm obviously going to retake in December.
I really want to go to University of San Diego, but at the moment my LSAT and 3.3 GPA are not working for me. I had a 3.9 my senior year, but when I went abroad the manner in which my grades were transferred back really hurt me since the school I studied at used a very different method of grading (I will be attaching an addendum) and killed my GPA. Anyways, USD has a part time program which is easier to get into, but I'd much rather go full time. Should I send in my applications now for the part time program or should I wait until January 1st to get my LSAT score and send everything as soon as I get it? Also, should I just apply to the full time program, but state in an addendum that I would definitely go into the part time program if rejected from the full time? On the application you are told you can only check full time or part time and not both. For all of the other schools I am applying to, should I hold off on the apps or send them in with a note saying I am retaking the LSAT, so they should wait to decide on my app?? I hope that didn't sound too confusing. Any help you guys could give me would be great. Thanks!!!
