reschedule for January? thoughts?

Recommended Posts

hey everyone.

so I'm currently signed up for the November-flex, however, I was hoping that I would be pt-ing in the 170s+ by now. Unfortunately, school and work got the best of me and I haven't had that much consistent practice since my August LSAT. While I am BR-ing in the 170s+, I am currently pt-ing between 165-169. This is my third retake (I scored 162, 164 the last times I took it). I'm redoing my LSAT because the school I want to go to has a median LSAT score of 166 and a 75th percentile of 169. I'd have to have a significant increase from my last score (3 points or higher) for this retake to be worth it. The latest scores they take are January scores.

Does anyone have any advice or is in a similar boat? I have about two weeks left. Do you think that's enough time to manage to pull off a 170+?

I took October and was scheduled for November. However, school got crazy and I definitely did not want to sacrifice my GPA, nor did I have time to study again for LSAT. So, I rescheduled for January. It's up to you based on your own individual situation, though. If you think you can do better, it may be worth rescheduling.

yeah I definitely feel that! I'm just anxious because a January retake means being considered for the last round or so for admissions ;~; also, with it being my third retake, I'm nervous about having multiple scores on file for the schools that don't look at multiple scores that favorably :^/

have you heard anything about january retakes? if they actually mess up your chances for acceptance?

I really doubt it messes with your chances at all

Your chance is about 75% because your LSAT is a bit low. I do think you do have a good chance though.

I'm in a similar boat. I've been reading accepted/rejected threads for all the schools i'm looking at. I don't know what to do because I already have a score where people are getting admitted with it, but they're also getting rejected with it!

This whole experience is an absolute nightmare. I wish I could just know the score I need.

Well I have no idea if that was stupid of me but I just rescheduled for January. The deadline for 0 fees has passed. Determined to get that 170. I guess absolute worst case I'll reapply really early for 2022

I had some trouble with the lsac website (shocking) so I hope I actually did reschedule, it's not showing a confirmation. I guess I'll find out monday when I call to confirm

Maybe I am writing writing the november 😂

    • Yes, you can guess, which is all that's going on in this thread, and isn't particularly useful.
    • Okay, there's a lot to unpack here. First, even if you were interested in work on Bay Street, you can get there from literally any law school in Ontario. It's a misconception to think that you need to go to Osgoode or UofT for that. Hell, there are people from Lakehead working on Bay St. Bay St also recruits from Queens, Western, and Ottawa. Ottawa is likely out for you because they are a big cGPA school. The other schools are all worth a try depending how well you do in your last year. Queens is a B2 school meaning they look at your best two years, UofT is a B3 meaning they look at your best 3 years, Western considers both cGPA and L2 meaning if your cGPA is awful they will consider your last two years, Lakehead and Windsor are both holistic, and Ryerson is a B20 school meaning they consider your best 20 credits. Ottawa and Osgoode are likely out since they are both cGPA schools.  Mental illness can qualify you for access, but you will likely need to get a letter or something from your psychiatrist to verify what you say.  It's difficult to say where you can get in with imaginary stats. If you want to speak hypotheticals, then yes if you get a perfect GPA in your last semester followed with a 170+ LSAT I reckon you'll get into at least a few schools, even with an awful cGPA. But I really need to emphasize that that is such a silly question because you don't have that perfect GPA in your last year followed by a 170+ LSAT. And so, so few people get a 170+ LSAT. Have you taken a diagnostic yet? For most people that is simply out of reach.  Law school is not out of the question for you yet. Just do the best that you can in your following year, try to score the highest LSAT score you can (the idea that you need a 170+ is ridiculous, you could probably still get in somewhere with a 160+), and then come back here with real stats when you're ready to apply. 
    • Bonjour, hi Je suis étudiante au Bacc à l’université de l’UQAM. J’ai 3,88 de GPA en science politique et 66 crédits d’accumulés. J’ai fais ma demande il y a deux jours à l’UQAM et l’UDEM. Qui a reçu des réponses déjà ? sinon quels sont vos statistiques? Venez on se supporte jusqu’aux résultats 🙏🏻🤞🏻
    • Got an offer this afternoon. TRU seems like an awesome school. I am so excited to meet new people and expand my mind. I am very grateful to TRU for offering me this opportunity.  GPA Grade Range from Application Assessment: A+  LSAT: 163, 86th percentile.   Regular applicant EC's: Worked in an MLA's Office for 8 months, interned for a provincial Minister of Education, tons of volunteering for a provincial political party, did an honours thesis during my degree, and worked as a policy researcher in the US.  Good luck to everyone and never give up! I've seen users in other spaces of this forum who like to make others feel insecure, don't let them deter you!
    • My best 2 years was 3.02, but this endeavor may be a waste of time and I fully understand that I should have dropped out rather than half-ass it for 5 years. But I need to know if discretionary boards would consider high 90's and 100's in full course load on top of a good lsat as enough evidence to admit?
