So I was rejected at a school last year that was one of my top choices. My LSAT score was below their 25th, but I took the chance. I owe it to 7Sage for my 11 point increase- which took me right above their 75th! I had submitted my app in November, to study for my retake, and they reviewed my app already and called me this evening to say they accepted me with a scholarship! It is more than half the tuition, and I am so excited you guys. I got into one school before I retook the lsat, an awful school. I was settling, taking the path of least resistance. But I studied and studied and brought my score up and sat for that damn test for the second time..I dodged a bullet, and saved a ton of money. I'm talking a 6 figure difference here. I was going to go to a school at full ticket price, no scholly, and probably be doomed for future jobs. But I prevailed. Never settle guys! I am excited to hear from other schools I have apps into. A couple I am a bit more above their 75th so I'm hopeful for more money!! I am stoked!

    Way to go! A great motivational story for those unsatisfied with their score and contemplating a retake, if you know you haven't reached your potential, an extra year is a small price to pay!! Good luck in school @"sbc.mom_3x"

    Very happy for you, and as I plan to retake myself, I ask everyone who has similar stories to you the same question: What did you do differently in your studies to achieve your target score? Congrats again! @"sbc.mom_3x"

    Congrats! This is absolutely inspiring. I'm in the same boat as you were, my LSAT score is under the 25th at all the schools I plan on applying to, but I'm taking a gamble to apply anyways. I'm curious if you had to re-write your resume and personal statement and request new LORs when you reapplied?

    Hey - totally so happy for you! I remember when you posted awhile back about being a single mom to three little ones and how inspiring you were. I have a spouse and it's still hard - I just don't know how single parents do it, but you have my utmost respect. Congratulations on getting to your top school and on the 11 pt increase!!! Go out and be an awesome lawyer!!
