LSAT Retake Addendum

Recommended Posts

Hey, so I'm planning to retake the LSAT in Jan and wondering if i should include an addendum saying I'm retaking in Jan, was not able to do as well on my initial test. I have not registered for the Jan test, I'm just scared they'll pass my application after seeing my score. I did indicate on OLSAS that I intend to take the Jan test, but have not physically registered for it yet.

Register for the exam, then all you have to do is email them that you're taking that exam (or indicate in your application) and they will hold off until January; schools don't even reject until way later.

What do you mean by email them? Like email each schools admission?

Yes, email each schools admissions just to give them an FYI that you will also be taking the January LSAT.

    • It likely will depend on the firm. If you have 3+ years of experience practicing (not summer or articling), grades will matter less. If it's right after articling because you weren't hired back, they will matter more.  Search firms will often request a transcript for anyone with less than 5 years experience.
    • May I know the link so I can calculate as well? 
    • I was going to say Carbolic Smoke Ball. That image is great. I recall there was a criminal law case that began with definition of “go go dancer” that my classmates and I found amusing I read in 1L but the name escapes me.   I think the Baker decision (about procedural fairness obligations for administrative bodies) is an interesting yet accessible case. It’s about an immigration decision where fairness obligations were not met. Also a good way to discuss systemic racism. Ewanchuk, an important case about assessing consent in relation to sexual assault is a good way to discuss intersection of law and gender.  
    • I would think it would help, but I suppose it depends on what you did in the military, and what the resumes look like of the rest of the applicant pool. People love to make predictions but at the end of the day, we don’t really know who we’re “up against”. I thought my resume was pretty interesting, for my age, considering I also have two kids, but I’ve come to realize it’s pretty unexceptional compared to a lot of high-achievers applying to law school 😆 My gut tells me military experience shows dedication, discipline, etc.    If your GPA is decent, you do well on the LSAT, and you can write a good personal statement, you certainly stand a strong chance! 
    • Ryerson and Ottawa U (applied in mature category at Ottawa U). I think I have a more realistic chance at Ryerson.
