So, you got back your score from the February LSAT, and you didn’t tell any of your friends because there just isn’t any emoji that can properly convey the wounded surprise and bitter anguish you feel. Is it time to just pack in the whole law school thing and teach tap dance to orphans in Bangladesh? Should you check yourself into a nursing home 60 years early? Is life as we know it over?
December LSAT scores are out, and that means many students are now facing a tough choice: retake the test or stick with the score you got?
The question is a perennial one, and one that we’ve tackled before here at Most Strongly Supported. According to data from LSAC, most mid-range test takers (those who scored in the 140s and 150s on their previous LSAT) increase their scores by slightly more than two points when they retake it.
