Cancelled (or considered) in the past: How do you feel?

Postby bostonld » Wed Jun 09, 2010 3:42 pm

Like many others, I considered canceling in the aftermath of the LG section. Ultimately, my gut instinct is telling me to wait it out and see what happens, as I think the other sections went well. As a result, my preicted score ranges from "disastrous" to "magically still hitting my goal." I think I'd rather face the music and take my bad score than mistakenly cancel a decent score. I may regret this in three weeks of course.

After reading others' thoughts on the matter, I started wondering how others making this decision fared in the past (i.e. those who took the LSAT before June). If you cancelled, are you happy you did? If you did not, how do you feel about your decision? Any horror stories of applicants getting 170+ on their second time around only to have their cycles hurt by lower first score?

I too wonder this. I mean, I'm not aiming for crazy t6 schools so I don't think one badish score paired with a good is going to hurt me. Honestly, I'm not sure how I scored. It could be great, could be bad. I think I'm going to wait this out though and see what happens. I may regret this but I hear from a lot of people that they always underestimate the score poststandardized test. Plus, I don't think I could stand prepping for as long as I did and not knowing how I scored. I think the fact that it could have been good would taunt me. Damnit! I want the score already.lol

I'm with you! My main goal is some $$ at a T25. I'm curious as to how much one "low-ish" score coupled with a strong score/GPA could impact scholarship distribution.

Same, I couldn't cancel just because it would haunt me forever not knowing what score I got, especially after all that prep.

Now that June '10 is in the books, I wanted to bump my original post to submit my own vote. I am happy to say that it's for "Did not cancel, have no regrets" as I somehow managed to pull off my goal despite my errors on the infamous "intern" game. :D Scored a tick below my practice average but still managed to obtain a number I'm happy with. Thank you -12 curve!
