1 cancellation, 1 low score, should I take the test again?

Postby lawman335 » Sun Feb 07, 2010 1:10 am

My first time out for the test anxiety got the better of me, I freaked out and couldn’t even finish. Second time I scored lower then I am capable. I scored a 154. Should I take the test again? Will it hurt me that I will have 2 scores and 1 cancellation? Any advice would be much appreciated!

retake it if you can do better. At least you're not a jackass saying you got a 175 and you want to retake. Your efforts will be admired by admissions as opposed to being perceived as neurotic.

If you feel you can improve definitely retake. There is plenty of time to study before the next LSAT.

Study as much as you can between now and june, retake in June, if you do a lot better the schools in your range (read: not HYS) will take the highest score.

retake it. Aim for at least a 157+ it's only 3 more points and it'll make your cycle go a whole lot smoother
