  1. With a 3.7 and a 161 from the June LSAT score I am sitting at the 50% mark for GPA and two points under the 25% mark (163) for the LSAT at USC. I know this classifies it as a reach school but I was wondering how far of a reach this is? I am planning to sign up for the September LSAT but I know preparation was not a problem for my past LSAT (I was ranging from 161-167 for my last six practice tests before the June test). Rather, I think I just scored at the low end of what I know I’m capable of. Do you suggest I retake in September or does the possibility of a lower score mean I should be happy with what I have and hope for the best?

    Thank you,

    1. Hi Ashlee- my short answer: you’ll never know until you try. If you can hit in the mid-to-high 160s you will obviously feel a lot more secure and it sounds like you’re in a good position to improve your score, so I’m all for a re-take.
