You guys, it’s been another fantastic year of the LSAT in the book. Well, if you had to take the LSAT this year, “fantastic” might not be the word that immediately springs to mind. But, at any rate, this year is over. I mean, sure, we technically have eleven more days and two major holidays left to go in 2018 (three if you’re in a Commonwealth country — shouts to Boxing Day). But, for all LSAT-related intents and purposes, this year is over. The final LSAT came and went and was released. Registration for the next LSAT has closed. Our classes have been put on a momentary hiatus for the holidays.
December LSAT scores are out, and that means many students are now facing a tough choice: retake the test or stick with the score you got?
The question is a perennial one, and one that we’ve tackled before here at Most Strongly Supported. According to data from LSAC, most mid-range test takers (those who scored in the 140s and 150s on their previous LSAT) increase their scores by slightly more than two points when they retake it.
