Breaking Down Your February LSAT Scores

February LSAT scores were released at 9am Eastern on Thursday, March 3rd. Now that you’ve got your score in hand, what’s next on the agenda? Here are some thoughts from our trusted crew at Blueprint on where to go from here.

Apply, apply, apply … or, at least, start getting the rest of your application in order. Brainstorm ideas for your personal statement. What makes you unique and an asset as a 1L? Whom will you ask for letters of recommendation? Get your resume in order and sign up for LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service (CAS) if you haven’t yet done so. Do your research on different law school programs: attend an online event or hit the road and visit some schools in person!

Maybe not quite ready to pass Go and move directly to applications? Well, we’re also here for those of you who are considering retaking the LSAT. Some folks worry about multiple LSAT attempts and how schools view them, but here’s the reality – schools don’t care. For real! The ABA requires only the highest score of each accepted applicant, so that’s all that schools care about. There really is no downside to retaking the LSAT. You’ve got experience on your side, so capitalize on knowing what it’s like to take the LSAT and go for it! Law school is competitive, to be sure, and it’s also expensive. Even an increase of just a few points can make a big difference in scholarship opportunities.

Finally, your LSAT score may leave you with more questions than answers. That’s okay too. Just get in touch with us and ask – someone will happily answer any questions you might have.
