Hi everyone, I just need some advice because I'm unsure about what to do.
I took the LSAT in October and scored a 159 and decided to retake in November because I was PT'ing in the mid-160s to the high 160s.
Well, I actually did way, way worse than usual for the November flex, even lower than my diagnostic score (154). I think this was probably because I had a lot of stress (applications, school midterms, and work) in November and I underestimated the stress I was under just because I was doing so well on my PT's the week before the exam. I was definitely tired and probably burnt out by the exam, but I foolishly decided to take the exam again.
I've applied to schools in Ontario (Queens, Windsor, Western, and York), Dalhousie, UNB, UBC (which is my reach school). My cGPA is horrendous (3.4/4.33), as for my first two years I was a science student who really shouldn't have been in science. However, my B2/L2 is much higher (3.8/4.33), and I will be applying under discretionary in a few of the schools I'm applying to.
I'll be done with all of my applications hopefully by the end of this month, but I'm not so sure if I should retake in January (also there's maybe an irrational side of me that thinks that I'll do even worse in January), as I'll be spending a portion of December studying for my final exams and I'm just tired of thinking about this test in general.
Any advice on what I should do?
