I'm actually contemplating canceling because of that and the fact that I know I missed at least 2 questions on the last game (the first 3 games were easy). I'm thinking -4/5 on LR combined, -5/8 on that horrible RC, and -2/4 on games. Best case scenario -11 gets me a 170; worst case scenario -17 gets me less than my first score.
Are you applying this cycle? You may have done better than you think you did but if you're not feeling great about the test perhaps you could cancel and re-take in June?
I've already gotten into some really good schools. The goal here was any/all of NYU's AnBryce (in already), Columbia's Hamilton (app still pending), or to increase my chance of getting into Yale (app still pending). The thing is, I'm 100% sure I didn't do well enough to get a 173 or better. So I doubt my new score will accomplish any of these goals. I'm going to think about it for another day or 2.

No idea why they would, but there were at least 2 people at my center who were sure they saw their experimental sections before. One even said that she remembered them from practicing the night before. Strange.
