Today. Now or Never.....

Postby Lawless2011 » Fri Jun 10, 2011 11:11 am

:| Today is the last day to cancel. Anyone having second thoughts like I am (trying to keep myself from jumping off the ledge). I dont feel I did too well especially RC. LG was great and so so on the LR. This was my 3rd attempt with low 150's scores in kaplan course

Sounds like you shouldn't cancel, if that's what you're asking.

Aside from that, how is it the last day to cancel? I thought we had six business days to cancel, the test was only four days ago.

One of your earlier posts stated that your highest LSAT score was 141. Is that correct ? If so, keep this score as you need a score in the 150s to have reasonable options. Also, many June test-takers feel that the RC section was unusually difficult. You may have done better than you think. And, bluntly speaking, if it is accurate that your prior test sittings resulted in a high score of 141, you can only improve as even another low score won't hurt.

Yes highest was 141 and I took a kaplan course and was averaging low 150's ..its not what im aiming for and too many scores to me dont look to good. I was aiming for 160's so im considering canceling

I have spent a lot of time decide myself whether I should cancel or not. I've also gotten a lot of advice. I wouldn't cancel if I were you. You need one good score and you never know what will happen next time you take it. I was prepared to take the June LSAT averaging ~164 on 7 tests. I completely choked on Monday! I actually woke up with a mild headache which turned into full blown migraine by the 4th section. I stupidly took the test last year when I wasn't ready and cancelled then. Now I do not feel comfortable cancelling again. Save your cancel!

Since you only get three tries in two years, you'll likely have to wait for a while before taking it again. "Too many scores" should be the least of your concerns at this point, considering your highest grade is a 141 and you've used your third test. Cancelling now seems like you would be shooting yourself in the foot.

I see no upside to cancelling.

The proctor read that the deadline was six calendar days, not business days. But I don't intend on cancelling (can't imagine delaying months rather than weeks to get my actual score) so I could be wrong.

Sorry bro if you are PTing in the 150's after three attempts you aren't cut out for law school. No school that would have you is worth attending even for free.

Maybe Desert it right, but it also matters how much you want it. And who knows, maybe you did great on this particular LSAT.

Don't cancel; see what happens.

Good luck!
