Third Retake Worth It? 2021 Cycle

Recommended Posts

I already took the LSAT twice in the past year, once in June (162) and once again in August (164). I was scheduled to take it again In November but decided to post-pone it until January. Admittedly, Master's applications and end-of-term finals got the best of me, so I haven't studied vigorously since November. My OLSAS cGPA and B3 is 3.80.

My dream school is UofT, which is why I have been considering retaking the LSAT so many times as I do recognize that I am in their lower percentile (though I also applied to Osgoode, Western, Queens, and Ryerson). However, I do not want to have a third attempt on file without a significant increase (as in 167+) since I have heard this does not look good and would want to save a third and final-ish attempt in the case that I decide to defer going to law school for another year, which would give me more time to study for a third attempt.

Considering the January LSAT is in two weeks, do you think it is worth retaking? Or should I just apply to this cycle with a high of 164 and 3.80?

I do have a lot of family, work, and academic commitments, but I would be willing to give it another shot in January 2021 if this is the general consensus. Any insight would be appreciated! Thanks!

I don't think they'll count multiple LSAT attempts against you, but this might be different for U of T. From what I've heard about other schools like Western, at least, they don't look at it badly.

I don't know is this matters but update: I scored a 166 on the first pt I took in a while and BR'ed a 174.

I'm not sure if it's worth trying to pursue a higher score for a January LSAT at this moment ;~;

You might get in with your current stats but I wouldn't bank on it; I feel like it can't really hurt you in regards to UofT to rewrite. If I was you I'd do it, but I would understand wanting to just call it a day. You still have a chance at UofT, it's just not strong. I'd say you're in everywhere else though.
