Hand scoring and the February LSAT

Postby bernaldiaz » Sun Feb 12, 2012 9:58 pm

Hello,

Just wondering how getting hand the test hand scored works. I know that for the December-Jun-Oct tests you can pay for it to be handscored after you get the results back if you see an error on your scoresheet. Obviously we won't be able to see the scantron for the February test since it is undisclosed, so I was wondering if this option is still available. I had a couple of answers changed due to erasing, and I always fill in really thoroughly on scantrons, so even after I had done my best erasing there was still doubt left in my mind. I know you can get it handscored and then wait for your results by snailmail and it takes like 5 weeks, but does anyone know if that option to get it checked by handscoring is available after you get your score back? I'll probably get it hand-scored no matter what, I don't want that doubt lingering in the back of my mind.

Thanks

Thanks. Since it doesn't say February is excluded, I'm guessing it'll be alright then?

That is what I am assuming. I don't see why not. I may ask for a hand score.

Yeah the scantron sheets just don't erase that well. I had two changed answers, and even if there is a 2% chance that either was incorrectly marked wrong, I think that the $42 bucks is well worth it.

(Hmm that means I value an LSAT point at about $2000 bucks. That actually seems about right, if not a little low given how it could affect scholarship or acceptances (and then subsequent job prospects))
