Are you Re-Applying to Law School?

One of my clients forwarded a great tip to me today and I want to pass it on to you:

For people that are resubmitting their law school applications for the second year: If you applied before you graduated last year, you need to resubmit final academic transcripts to LSAC, so that your LSDAS reports reflect the most current information. You can go on your account at LSAC and check the date on which your transcript was processed this will tell you whether or not you’ve submitted the most current version of your academic record(s).

  1. I am reapplying to law school after deciding not to retake the LSATs. I scored a 149, had a 3.5 and applied late last year. I now have a 3.65 and am planning on applying the moment admissions allows. I did not include an addendum as to my low LSAT score, I am a poor standardized test taker, my ACT score was also law, but I’ve always held a high GPA. With new letters of recommendation, an addendum explaining my low LSAT score and an addendum explaining my re-application, is there anything else I could do to bolster my application? Should I consider retaking the LSAT?

    • Jacky, I just don’t know enough about you to answer such a personal question. However, new LORs aren’t as important as an addendum and a new personal statement (or at least a revised personal statement). I can’t tell you whether to retake the LSAT because I haven’t spoke to you about your potential to perform on the test if you retake it.
