If I bombed December 2010

Postby bartleby » Sat Dec 11, 2010 8:19 pm

I already applied to most of my law schools with my 164. I have a 160 - cancel - 164. Say I get a 150. Can I just say I misbubbled? I might have, I'm not too sure.

if you are certain that you scored 14 points lower than your best score cancel. Even 3 points lower than your 164. You dont want a downward trend on the LSAT.

I am in a similar position I have a 3.7, 165 (from Oct), URM. I retook but am not feeling very confident about score today. It could be up to 2-3 pts lower. BUT it could be higher. You think I should cancel? My goal is UCLA.

As a URM you are already in at UCLA with those numbers.. I'd cancel

I'm gonna hijack real quick... if I'm at an Oct. 170 and don't know about this test (though I feel good about games). I'm not applying til next cycle. How bad would a couple point decrease be?

Not very though obviously if you want T6 you will end up having to retake again.
