As it stands, I have a fair number of denials this cycle and a few waitlists that I will possibly ride out through the summer. Due to the rough nature of this cycle, I am potentially considering reapplying next cycle.
My stats are 3-mid GPA, 166 LSAT, and 4+years WE. I applied all in February because I had to retake the January LSAT. I had two glowing recs from former bosses (been out of school for a while) that I have now used for 2 consecutive cycles. I also used the same reason/idea for why I am applying to law school for 2 consecutive cycles (same idea but completely rewritten). I had several people review my essays and tell me I had a strong and compelling reason to study law so I don't think my essays were the issue.
I know there is still ample room for improvement in terms of LSAT score, the timing of application, and so forth. I am just wary of having used all my "good stuff" 2 times - my glowing recs and essays. I would have liked to use those same recs and essays once more but am wary of how schools would perceive that. The essays would again be rewritten but the recs would not.
If I do consider reapplying next cycle when it opens in September, what can I do to best position myself to attain my goals - getting into Top 20 schools with possible scholarships?
