Yet another cancellation question

Postby samoby » Wed Dec 11, 2013 1:34 pm

I took the test in October and got a 170. My GPA is low (3.4ish).

I took the December test and panicked on LG, so I bubbled in the last 5 questions on the last game as one letter at the end when I was running out of time. LG is normally my strongest section and I went -0 in October, which is typical for me. I can safely assume I missed at least 4 of those since they were truly random.

I felt good about the remaining sections of the test while I was taking them. Very good about LR and above average about RC. I am worried about how it will look for my score to go down. I know the general thought is that schools only care about your highest score, but I can't imagine that it wouldn't have some impact to see a drop. I don't know whether the small chance that I managed to sweep the other three sections is worth that risk.

I'd really appreciate any advice because I feel like, to be safe, I'd have to submit that cancellation request today. Thanks, everyone.

What's your honest worst-case scenario for the score?

I'd say, not knowing the curve, 165 or 166.

What's your best case?

I'd guess 175 as a best case scenario.

Hard call. I'd probably keep it, but I'm a gambling man.
