Would you cancel if you were me?

Postby Hoping4Happiness » Fri Dec 13, 2013 6:33 pm

Background: Gpa is a 3.75, nothing too impressive for my softs :l
I took the Oct Lsat and got a 162. Was PTing at 166 for the most part. I was conflicted on canceling Oct because I got so nervous and anxious, but I'm glad l didn't cancel, I'm okay with a 162 as my first score. I took the Dec lsat but for some reason was actually pt'ing kind of low the week before the test... 163 range... I did pretty awful on the mirrors passage, wouldn't be surprised if I only got 1 question right on that passage... (which would mean -7 for that alone) because I had to guess the last 4 questions anyways ugh... I also had to guess the last 4 for a LR section.... and two for LG.. I don't mind if I go to a TT (I suppose thats what you call 60-100 ranked school) but I need at least an 80% scholarship... :ll Anywho... do you think it would be better to just cancel or keep my score? I'm guessing it will be 155-165? Who knows maybe I was right on my guesses and get a 170 haha... le sigh...

Wait and see. I took the LSAT three times. The last time I was betting I didn't beat my previous score, but I ended up surpassing it by three points. It's easy to get worked up and assume the worst.

If 165 is the highest you think you may have scored, you should strongly consider gearing up for a third take. With your GPA you could attend a T14 with a hefty scholarship.

You can go tier 1 with those numbers.

Just to clarify, tier 1 is 1-50.
