If you took it yesterday, then I assume you haven't gotten your score. Do you need it for this cycle? If not, I would consider canceling the score and seeing if you can get your money back from LSAC (or a free retake).

Don't listen to him. It's time to step up and retake! In 3-D!

If you retake, I'd write an addendum explaining only this ^ about your first sitting. Just say that you didn't perform as well as you could have on your first sitting, in part due to problems with section timing.

Won't matter all that much, but it could help schools overlook your first score.

I agree that the conditions were awful, and the proctoring generally miserable. That 2.5 hour wait was interminable.

R6, were you sitting on the left side of the room? I noticed that guy get up and leave during the writing portion.

I would avoid any mention of it. If you complain about a book being dropped during your exam, the school will wonder what you'll do when faced with a proper annoyance like opposing counsel.

Lol

It really sucks to screw up the principle test.

Don't do the addendum.

If you were an admissions person, what would you think about somebody who said "my score would be better but these people were coughing, and shuffling papers, and the timer went off wrong, and IT ISN'T FAIR!"

This is why I leave the door open as Boyfriend plays Xbox after I retreat to the office to study. If I can dominate LGs with that stupid music from FIFA '10 blaring in the background, I'll be fine with some sniffles and beeps in my actual test.

Was the "marching band competition" retake scenario exactly what it sounds like?
