Tips for those unlucky souls on the waitlist for an LSAT testing center

Let’s suppose you signed up for the LSAT, but there weren’t any open testing centers, so you were placed on the waitlist. Or let’s suppose that you’re one of those unlucky souls who was removed from the waitlist but placed in a suboptimal testing location on the outer reaches of the 100-mile radius.

Bad news? Yes, but your test center isn’t set in stone – you still have until August 22nd to change it (for the low low price of $100, because LSAC misses no opportunity to part you from your money). If you’d like to change your testing center, here are some tips.

The law school application cycle rolls on, and that means that in addition to receiving a lot of acceptances (hopefully), you may also start receiving some not-so-good news. Being placed on a school’s waitlist can be discouraging, but the good news is that being waitlisted for a law school is not a kiss of death, the way it often is for undergrad admissions – schools only waitlist candidates they’d seriously consider, and people are accepted into law schools from the waitlist with some regularity. In the meantime, here are some things you can do to improve your chances:
