Hello,

Just wondering, is it too late to the February LSAT for fall applications. Most schools I have chosen, have deadlines starting in March. Thank you in advance for your feedback.

    No. However, I suggest that you check with the school's you find of interests, to gauge how scholarship and stipend monies are handled with a February LSAT score for Fall of 2018.

    Some schools take Feb scores but it really depends on the school. I don't recommend taking Feb as your first and only LSAT of a cycle though. First, Feb tests aren't disclosed so you won't know where you miss questions. Second, if you need to retake, it will likely be too late for most schools.

    AlexDivine - any idea why the Feb test is not disclosed?

    @FirstOne good idea about the scholarships and stipend. I will look into that.

    @"Alex Divine" Thank you for your response. Is it wise to take the December exam and then sign up for Feb before results come in? I am kind of under a lot stress with work, studying and getting ready to travel in december. I thought after my vacation, I will be well rested and ready to tackle the Feb exam.

    I believe they recycle sections/material from undisclosed administrations, or something along those lines.

    Best bet is to always take it once your scoring where you want to on PTs. February might be right for you if you are hitting your goal score by then.

    It comes down to the fact that LSAC needs to have unreleased exams saved for Sabbath takers, cancelled test dates (like the ones resulting from the recent hurricanes), and overseas tests. So they use undisclosed Feb tests for a lot of this because creating new LSATs takes a lot of time and resources.

    I already took the Sept test and signed up for the Dec test. If I don't hit my average in the Dec test, can I still take the Feb test and send in the info after all my apps are submitted for scholarship/waitlist purposes?

    Yup. That's actually a great strategy if you think you can score higher in Feb.

    This is what I was thinking of doing also. Thx AlexDivine.

    I guess I will take it in December and Feb also. I am just slow on time, especially in RC and RC is my strongest area. Thank you folks for all your responses.

    I just went to an open House with Admission Director for GSU. At least for GSU, they accept LSAT scores up until after the June test. But, they have been admitting folks since October, and giving out financial awards, so if you were hoping to get some $$$ then you might be out of luck. You might consider taking a year off if you need the money to get through it. She did say if you are in that 180 range, they would of course make a lot exceptions for you. Good luck.

    I am planning on applying at GSU as well. I graduated with an M.A. from Clark and have taken some classes at GSU, but I didn't know they have open house admission for law school. I will follow up with GSU and see if they have anymore open house admission anytime soon.

    Your last sentence made me lol.... i'm sure most schools would make exceptions for those folks in the "180 range"!!
