Cancellation Deadline?

Postby thf5007 » Thu Dec 08, 2011 6:06 pm

Is tomorrow Friday, December 9th, correct? And by what time is the deadline, business hours (5) or midnight?

Please don't respond with a "you shouldn't wait to the last minute". I know that, its just a tough decision that I'm still having trouble with.

I don't know the answer to your question, but my feeling is that if you haven't been able to decide by now you should just ride it out and wait for you score. If you were more confident you messed up horribly you would have already canceled by now.

In the same boat as you thf. I believe Dec. 9th is correct, but am kind of wondering the same thing. I keep going back in forth in my head and come up with equally convincing reasons to both cancel and not cancel.

yea it sucks, I'm headed to the gym to blow off some steam. I don't know about you, but I've printed out the cancellation form and even filled it out. It's just a question of whether or not I'm going to put it through the fax.

Yes, if you took the test last Saturday December 3rd the deadline to submit the cancellation form is tomorrow Friday December 9th. You can fax it in. LSAC must receive the proper signed form by midnight ET, but if you decide to cancel, get the form in earlier just to make sure in case the fax lines are busy or you experience technical issues with equipment.

Here are the direct links with the instructions and the form for quick reference for anybody considering cancelling:

Also, here are links to good blog posts about things to think about when considering cancelling a score. One of them was written for the Feb 2011 test but the advice applies to all administrations.
