LSAT for the forth time

Postby lawchampion » Sat Feb 27, 2010 5:59 pm

Any idea how to ask schools to send to a letter to LSAC on your behalf for taking LSAT for the forth time in a two year period?

You see, every time someone cancels a score that is counted as a "taken test". Ditto for missing a test sitting. I know someone who had didn't get a score on two occasions (cancelled one test, and was absent during other because of a family emergency at the last minute).

She had to go through this bullshit of asking a school to write a letter, even though she had no "actual score" on her file.

LSAC really needs to address this issue. What a waste of time and effort!

P.S. If you just have a "bad score" and want to retake... then I guess you'll need a good explanation. :?

By that standard, I took it 4 times as well; no letter though. I got into plenty of schools anyway. What is this letter business?

An absent DOES NOT count as one of your 3 tests. I have an absent, 151, 154, and 163 on my report. After the absent I called LSAC and asked them if it counted and the said it did not, although it does stay on your report that you missed the test and you cant get your money back.

Just be sure you don't ask to take it a forth time.
