i just cant imagine going through a grueling exam that will determine my future, and not checking my score


Very true. But I don't want to go through life with any regrets. I just hate how the whole process is based on numbers. Doesn't it dehumanize the process a bit? Therefore, instead of knowing my exact score, I applied to schools based on what I thought I got on the LSAT. I only applied to like 6 schools in the range I felt comfortable with. I don't want an LSAT score telling me where I should apply. And I know if I knew my exact score, I would use LSP to weed out schools that I may have had a shot of getting into. Who really knows? I also think its more interesting to get unexpected acceptances/rejections in the mail without knowing my LSAT.

To each his own I guess. :)


You're going to regret not applying to schools based on your LSAT when you eventually find out you either got a 175 and could have gotten into T10 or that you got a 150 and you got rejected everywhere you applied.
