Cancel or not?

Postby applepiecrust » Sat Feb 12, 2011 10:12 pm

So I (somewhat stupidly) took the LSAT again today (previous score was 168) because I had never scored under 170 on PTs. However, I did not feel very good about today's test coming out, because I messed up on LG and ended up guessing on 3.

I had felt good coming out of the October test only to actually get the worst score I had ever scored.

I am already in at the school I want to go to, and took it again to see if I would score closer to my PT average of 173. And if I scored higher, perhaps I could try to negotiate scholarships.

Are scores reported to schools that have already accepted you?

Should I cancel? Should I even be trusting my gut feeling? (And I don't really have a "gut" feeling, just 3 LG guesses, and tons of silly mistakes on my previous LSAT administration that make me afraid that might be the case on this one as well).

You're being neurotic. You can only gain from your score if you're already in, no school is going to pull an offer of admission because of a drop in score.

Yeah, neuroticism is what led me to retake despite T10 admission anyway.
