how bad is a Absent mark

Postby Nickg415 » Mon Oct 08, 2012 10:04 pm

So I didn't show up for the LSAT last week. I should have withdrawn the night before I know, I just spaced. I already scored a 170 on the june test so I was just going to take it to get a few extra points. How bad will this look on applications? If I have already applied with my previous score will they even see that I have an absent mark?

Its an auto-ding from all T14s.

I might "space" in December if I get a 17x on the oct exam, lol.

Spoiler alert: It doesn't matter at all.

So I did do a search and the confusion comes from the fact that there has been a recent change in the withdraw policy. Since you can now withdraw up until midnight before the test (eastern time, that is what screwed me over) it has been suggested that it might be more of a red flag than it was with the old policy. I'm not too concerned since worst case scenario I write an nice little addendum but I am even wondering if that is even necessary.

I believe it was either the end of last year or the beginning of last year. I took the June test and had the option then.
