Hey! I know its early, but I UH is my number one choice and I am wanting to apply ED. I took August LSAT in hopes of boosting my score, but in the off chance it didn't, is there any advice that can be offered? My stats are a 156 with 3.98 strong resume (probable classification of T3 softs, but Im not sure).
