LSAC Auto Cancel???

Postby gambelda » Thu Feb 17, 2011 8:13 am

I filed a test center complaint form after the December 2010 exam. I also knew I didn't perform as well as I would like but decided I wouldn't cancel. I called LSAC to clarify my options after the results of my complaint form came in and they told me I could fax in an accept or cancel notice from the email. I asked what happens if I wait the three weeks or accidentally miss the deadline to return the form. They said the score would post to my record. So I said, okay that's great. I'm in no rush to see it anyways (not applying this cycle, debating not applying at all) - so I walked of fto my next work meeting and threw the printed email on my desk to sit for 3 weeks. I wasn't going to bother dealing with our office fax machine anyways.

4 weeks later (this morning), I get a test score email notice so I go to check it and it says they canceled my score? Can I even get this score back? I was told something completely different!!! After all that studying and shit I just wanted to see my score!

I'm sorry, that's terrible of them to cancel without you asking them to do so.

If they canceled your scores without a written request to do so, that was in error and you should contact them to get it fixed. (Assuming that you're not guilty of misconduct or something.)

Yeah, it sounds like you have a case here for it being scored.

Once a score is canceled, there is no possibility of getting in un-canceled and pulled back to get scored and reported. ZERO possibility no matter what.

I'll bet that the LSAC notice of options that sat on the OP's desk for three weeks specified the options and what would happen in the case of not submitting an official response/decision by the specified deadline. What is specified in the letter is what controls, not what one of the LSAC reps (that may not have been looking at the case file details) said over the phone.
