Extra Curricular Information

Good job experience (2+ years)
Positive LORs from profs who knows me well
Passable community service and involvement on campus


Scholarship awards are over 3 years

11/16 - Waiting for my last LOR for all of my applications to be complete. This should happen in the next week.

11/20 - Slowly losing my mind waiting for my last LOR to be processed. Also considering taking the January LSAT if there is any possibility that it will have an effect on my t14 applications (specifically Boalt). When I took the LSAT originally all the schools were still averaging multiple scores...

11/30 - E-mail from U Miami assistant dean of admissions complementing my personal statement and telling me 'You will be hearing from us soon'. Sounds good to me!

12/8 - Got my acceptance from Miami today! Small white envelope.

12/11 - Received scholarship offer from Miami.

02/02 - Recieved scholarship offer from San Diego

02/22 - Just got my Feb LSAT scores back (169!), so any decisions that come after this may be effected by those new scores.

So I am considering re-taking the LSAT in February because I just learned that a lot of schools are now recognizing the highest score rather than averaging. I took the LSAT a year and a half ago, and didn't score as high as probably could have. I would really like to have a shot at getting into Berkeley, but I am not sure if a February LSAT score would get there in time to effect their decision. Any input?

If you have the time to prepare for the LSAT again and you have credible reason to believe you will do better, then there is little to lose. You should not concern yourself right now with whether it will effect decisions etc because of two reasons: 1) if you are waitlisted, you can submit your new LSAT score and have a higher chance of being picked off or 2) if you are rejected, you can (at some schools) appeal if your score is significantly higher

Hey wustlajb, Congrats on Utah. It is my top choice. Did Dean Aguilar give you a call to let you know? Good luck with the rest of you apps. I am sure your strong stats will garner a few more acceptances.
