Retake and Apps

Decided to retake my LSAT in December in hopes of getting a few more points to help with scholarship $$. I applied to ASU and U of Illinois before deciding to retake. I emailed both about my intentions. ASU is waiting to process my application until they get my second score, Illinois said they wouldn't necessarily wait to process it but if they didn't get to it until after the Dec. score came in, then it would just shake out that way. If they process it before the score comes back, I suppose I can just come back to them with my second score and use it to negotiate. Every other school has been applied to with the intention to take the Dec. LSAT in the application.

OSU and Iowa

Congrats on the admits and $$. What a cycle you have had! If I may ask, how many points did you add to your LSAT score on the second take?
