With October LSAT scores out this week, I’m sure many of you are either kicking back with a well-deserved beer or else grinding away wrapping up your applications. Here, however, I’d like to address those among us with a less than happy outcome
In any given year, a solid portion of October LSAT test-takers are comprised of people who took the June test, weren’t quite satisfied with their score, and want to give it another shot. If this describes you — or if you’re planning to just self-study and retake — here’s how to optimize your application timeline.
1) Start today
First and foremost, I should say that the LSAT should become high-priority as soon as you decide to retake. Because so many admissions officers have cited the LSAT as the single most important factor in evaluating an applicant, it is important that you resume your studies more or less immediately after you know you’re going for the October test. Don’t put it off.
