Hello everyone,

I am so sorry for adding to the chorus of questions, complaints, etc. I would sincerely appreciate any advice.

I took the LSAT yesterday and most of it is a blur. I believe I did fine on LR and LG (unless I misinterpreted a rule, entirely possible) but tanked on the RC. I didn't comprehend the passages that I read and had to guess on the last one.

By "fine" I mean within my accepted score range. I have come to terms that I need to live with a 155-158. Pathetic. I know. But that is life.

Anyway, my question is this: should I cancel? Obviously my range of schools is not that grand, and most of them take the top score anyway. So to me it makes no sense if I am not going to a school that averages to cancel.

My hope is Pitt, and I will be entering in Fall 2012 with a 3.95 undergrad GPA at a respected institution. That is a whole other discussion though.

Could anyone please help me out here?

How you were doing on PTs is a critical consideration here.

Before PT's in the 40's I was averaging 153-156 and the more recent practice tests starting with 58 and on 155-159, LSAT 59, 60, 61 were 155, 157, and 157, respectively.

Sounds like you performed right within your range. IMO you really shouldn't cancel unless you're sure you were well below where you had been PTing.
