Episode 37: Should You Retake the LSAT?

In this week’s podcast, we answer the following questions about retaking the LSAT:

  • Dylan has a 3.5 GPA and scored a 163 on the LSAT, yet he got as high as 167 on practice tests. Should he apply to law school early through rolling admission, or retake the LSAT in hopes of a higher score?
  • Lauren scored a 170 on the June LSAT. She is considering retaking the test in October because she scored as high as 174 on practice tests, but doesn’t want to burn herself out. Should she retake the LSAT?
  • Andre scored a 155 on his first attempt at the LSAT. After taking a prep course and doing numerous practice rounds, his practice scores ranged from 161-169. Yet when Andre retook the LSAT, he only got a 157. Why did his score decrease and what should he do before retaking the LSAT?
  • Beth is taking the October LSAT. She’s working full time and can’t afford a prep class. After using the Princeton Review and Kaplan LSAT test prep books, Beth was so stressed about timing that she neglected to work on study techniques. As a result, her score went down. What LSAT study strategy do we recommend for Beth?
