Applying after seat deposit

I plan to hear back from schools (t14-t20s) around the first seat deposit deadline (mid/late April). I plan on retaking (March LSAT) to help with potential waitlists, but in the chance I do exceptionally well in March, I may even want to apply to higher ranked schools.

Re: AA male 3.4 160

No one can say for sure, but it's within the realm of likely possibility. How high were you scoring on practice tests? Is 160 your peak goal, or do you think you could pull even higher with another cycle to study and prepare — then apply on the earlier side this fall? I am well aware of the prudenc...

mylsn shows that you're def good for GULC on down and have decent chances for CCN on down

AA male 3.4 160

Apps sent mid-Jan to lower t-14 down to t-30. No name uni, uneventful softs, few years out of undergrad.
