If you have a bad feeling about your performance on the LSAT, don't wait around to find out your score. You're letting your curiosity get the better of you. Jitters are fine, but if you feel like something was seriously off, cancel and re-take. It's better to apply with just a September (or December) LSAT and a cancellation than with a low score and a high score.
Related to this was the earlier advice to take the June LSAT if you possibly can. I wish I had.
I couldn't agree more. Felt badly about my June test, but thought I was psyching myself out. Then I was in the awkward position of having to explain a 157 and a 170 from Sept. Cancel if you really think you bombed it. You probably did.
