To anyone who scored 175 or better, please respond

When you walked out of the test center, did you know you just killed it? Did you have doubts or think about cancelling?

I don't understand the question. Are you asking for people who were consistently PTing at 175 or better to respond? Because obviously among people who scored 175+ on a previous LSAT there are very very few retakers.

He's asking anyone who got above a 175 in the past if they knew, when they took it, in the past, not yesterday, whether or not they knew they killed it. As for me, I walked out of the center feeling like I had thoroughly destroyed it. Then over the next month while waiting for my score I thought of hundreds of ways I could've screwed up and convinced myself that I did shitty. Try not to do this to yourself because it makes the month of waiting seem a lot longer. hth

I scored a 175 last fall, after a 166 in June...I had sneaking suspicions that I had done well, I had been PTing in the 170's consistently with a high of 178, but when it came to the actual test it's hard to be confident until you see the number. If you're like me there are always looming doubts that you could've completely misbubbled, etc. Personally, I don't see the advantage to ever cancelling, almost all schools take the highest score, so barring a known complete disaster, I don't see why people cancel.

When you know you screwed up is when it sucks. If I get a 160 again i'll be so pissed. Was hoping for a 166 this time but messed up half a game and the RC passage about the african historiographers so unless I killed everything else looks like December 3rd time may be the trick

I knew I fucked up reading comp and killed the rest of the test.

I was confident coming out of the test. I wasn't exactly sure I'd score, but I didn't doubt that I had done very well.

Can I play??? (174)

I thought I had done well on LR, just okay on games, and completely screwed up on RC. Thus I was super bummed out and convinced I had done lower than my PT'ing the weeks before the test (~170-171)

Turns out that I was right on LR, the -2 on games didn't hurt too much since it was a harder section, and -2 on RC was way better than the -5 or -6 I was predicting. Helped that the curve was -11.

I felt fine. Neither freaking out nor confident that I killed it. When people asked me how I did, I just calmly shrugged. I knew I had problems with 3 of the questions, but those ended up being the only ones I missed.

Eh you can probably get a rough sense... I walked out knowing I had screwed up a rule that cost me some time... So I guessed it probably dropped me to 173-175.

Missed 175 by 1 question, and had a 173 instead. Hated that curve :cry:

I was worried. I felt good about the questions but I freaked out on one of the sections. I thought about canceling, but I didn't feel like I could justify it without actually knowing that I got a bunch wrong. I kept it and ended up with a 179.

177 (first time). I had been PTing 178-180 (though I only did about 10 practice tests).

I felt sure I had done perfectly on LG (as is, I think, the case with almost everyone who scores 175+). I felt pretty good about LR, but worried that I had really screwed up RC (this was June 2009, with Willa Cather and fractals, which really threw me off). I considered canceling for about a day, because I had arrogantly told myself before the test that anything less than a 175 and I would re-take, and I feared that RC might have pushed me below that. I ended up doing ok on RC (-2, I think, which was worse than normal but not a disaster in itself); the other points I lost were on a LR question that I straight up misbubbled and a LR question for which I changed my answer at the last second : /
