Chances for 2020 - Should I rewrite the LSAT?

Recommended Posts

Hi all! 

I am wondering about my chances for a fall 2020 acceptance (I would be applying next September for the following year).

I am a NL resident, 4.0 GPA (87% cumulative, 89% L2), 157 LSAT, and extensive extra curriculars (volunteer work, campus involvement, part-time work throughout undergrad and full-time work in the summers at NGOs and provincial government).

Wondering if I should rewrite the LSAT. Thanks in advance!

In.

But why not rewrite for better / more options?

I am very interested in UNB. Thinking I'll apply there, and to two other schools. Would be nice to be close to home! 

Thanks for your quick response. :)

You would more than likely be accepted, but if you’re interested in applying for scholarships a rewrite certainly wouldn’t hurt! 

Your GPA is great, and so are your ECs. Having a slightly higher LSAT score might increase your chances for larger scholarships. :)

    • Update: People have been accepted with worse stats than me at this point...
    • Has anyone out there gone to meet with Dean Holloway for anything? If so, what for? I've been summoned for a chat and I don't know what to expect. I'm sure it's nothing bad but the uncertainty is doing nothing good for my imagination. He seems like the kind of guy who genuinely likes chatting with students so maybe something along those lines? 
    • Depends a lot on where you want to study. I only know about Ontario so here’s info on that region: You would apply to all Ontario schools through OLSAS, a centralized application portal that gathers materials and sends them to the schools. Applications are normally due within the first days of November, the year before you apply. So, November 2019 if you want to start in 2020. Applications will open in late August each year, but you can search the net for last year’s info, which should be very accurate.  There used to be only 3 LSAT dates per year- June, September/October, and January. On your OLSAS application, you must indicate which tests you have already written, and which you intend to write. Many schools would accept any test date, but might put off evaluating your file if you intended to re-write. Some would not look at the January score. It is my understanding that there are many more test dates now. You’d have to check each schools website, but I’d say the general rule applies- for admittance during the 2019-2 cycle, you’d have to write the test before February 2020.
