Retaking the LSAT: Do Schools Average Your Scores? Would It Look Bad Taking the More than Once? Can You Take the Test “Too Many” Times?

If you have multiple LSAT scores, will law school admissions officers hold that against you? Will they average multiple scores? Will they view you having to take the LSAT multiple times as a sign that you lack the intellect, the preparation, the acumen to be a law student? Is taking the LSAT more than once a moral failure?

These are questions that anyone who is even adjacent to the law school admissions process gets constantly (well, maybe not the last one).

5 Keys to Great Law School Resumes

Writing your law school personal statement is a daunting task. But at least you can quickly realize that you don’t have to boil your entire life down into two pages – you can tell a single story that had a profound impact on you.

The résumé, on the other hand…

You have one page to tell me what you’ve done with your life. Go.

A lot of people view the law school résumé as superfluous. While it doesn’t carry the weight of other elements, it does represent a whole lot more. You’ll be showing the law school what type of student you are, what you spent your time doing, and what accomplishments you can list. It sets the tone of your life, and if it doesn’t create a good impression, admissions officers will be going through your law school application with a sour taste in their mouths.
