Rewriting January LSAT

Recommended Posts

I have a previous score on file that makes me competitive for early admission in January for Robson Hall. In an effort to raise my LSAT, I was looking to rewrite in January. Will Robson Hall make a decision based on my current LSAT score assuming it gets me in or will they wait until my rewrite score comes out?

I think it depends what you tell them to do unfortunately. They only assess once.

I'm not sure this is true. Each school will have their own processes on how they assess, but OP you could reach out to Robson Hall and ask at what point they will assess your application.

Yeah. I told basically all the schools I'm applying to that I wish for them to assess me initially based off my October LSAT (though will be rewriting in January) and most said "Ok I will update your file accordingly" but some said "Ok. We will assess you in January" so *shrug emoji* hahaha

I am in a similar position, I have a decently competitive score from November but considering writing in January. Wondering if anyone got a clear answer from admissions on when/ how many times they assess. I emailed the admissions office and haven't gotten a response. Ideally I would like my November score to be assessed for early offers, then having my score adjusted with my Jan LSAT for next round of applications but not sure if this is how it works. My agpa is 4.1 and LSAT of 158 leaving me around a 77 index score, any suggestions about if I should just apply with that score for early offers or if it would at all benefit me to re write in January? 

 

Any advice welcome!! Thanks!!

A 77 is a really great index score, in literally every year you would get in way before waitlist. Not sure if that helps, but you're basically guaranteed admission from where you stand right now!

Thanks for the feedback I appreciate it! 

If anyone else is wondering I heard back from admissions and they assess applications first round with the highest score on record, if they can give you an offer they do so, if not they reassess when Jan LSAT scores are released and readjust your index score for the second round of offers if your write in Jan and score higher.

    • That's what extensions are for! I adjourned hearings, got extensions on written submissions and, like Douglas Adams said, listened to the whoooooshing sound that deadlines made as they flew by. We had our 2 year old home while daycare was closed from mid-March to August. My spouse is a health care professional and she still had a full client-load seeing them over video. Our compromise was that she had to give up Monday so she could be full-time toddler duty Saturday-Monday. The rest of the week, she worked 9-5 doing video sessions and I was on toddler duty. I would work evenings and weekends just to keep up. I only managed (to keep up with work) because I would put in 15 hour days Saturday-Monday and then got in 4-5 hours on days I was on toddler duty after she went to bed. It was an awful grind. It feels like we may be trending back in that direction with cases going up and I don't know how we could manage like that again. It feels harder now - at least when EVERYTHING was closed, opposing counsel, the courts, tribunals, etc. could relate because their kids were home too. Our toddler is back in daycare but we are debating pulling her out with cases on the rise. However, we both feel that people are less understanding now (in terms of extension requests or rescheduling client sessions for her) because it would be our choice to keep her home and they may not relate.  
    • What is the significance of having the undergrad completed at Ryerson?
    • UofT, Queens, Western, and maybe some other non-Ontario schools all started Fall 2020 in person with masks on. I don't see why this model wouldn't also be used once a decent portion of the population has been vaccinated. 
    • Fall 2021 - 75% in person Winter 2022 - 100% in person Barring some massive failure in the vaccine roll-out I don’t see a reason to have an online only semester. I personally think it would be safe to have students back even if they haven’t vaccinated our age group. The pressure on the hospitals should drop off significantly once the over 50 population is vaccinated. 
    • I know a really smart guy at UofT who was on the varsity rugby team and quit early on because he said it was "absolutely impossible" to balance the two. I also know of a now-graduated student who was a varsity figure skater throughout law school but also had very good grades - everyone on Bay St was after her lol
