Taking the December LSAT & Lowering Chances of Admission

Taking the December LSAT & Lowering Chances of Admission
« on: September 08, 2004, 07:39:43 AM »
I am currently registered for the October LSAT, and already have most of my apps completed, including recs & PS.  I am considering postponing to December to give myself a better shot at reaching my target score (around 166-168; I am at 160-162 now).

How much does applying in late December/early January really affect your chances in general?  All my other credentials (work experience, GPA, recs) are solid, except I am about 5-7 points away from a top-14 lock.  Is this worth the chance, or should I take now and then retake in December if needed with no guarantee I'd improve?

you still have more than 3 weeks to study for oct.  just do as much as you can and see where you are by then, maybe youll be able to jump up 4 or 5 points.  if you are still around 161 and honestly think you can improve to 166+ then i think itd be wise to wait until dec.
