Did you take the February 2008 LSAT?
What should you do with your February 2008 LSAT score? Are you hoping to apply for Fall 2008? You’ll probably be ok at safety schools but anywhere that you’re mid-range or reaching is going to end up with a wait list response at best. This is the joy of rolling admissions.
It might be a better strategy to wait until Fall 2009 entry. You can really work to create impressive applications, strengthen your LORs and resumes, improve your GPA, and apply early (September/October) for the next admission cycle. This can definitely help you to be a more competitive applicant.
If you decide to do this, don’t put law school on the back-burner. Be proactive and get yourself on a time-line. The summer will be here before you know it.
P.S. I am currently accepting law school admission consulting clients for Fall 2009 and will accept fewer than 150 this year. Sign up early.
P.P.S. Trends I’m noticing: The following schools seem to be gunning it for improvement in rankings (based on the fact that they are turning down people this year that I think they would have admitted last year): Boston College, George Washington University, Northeastern, and George Mason.
