So you’ve conquered the LSAT exam, or have you?
It’s not enough that you’ve studied for months, stressed for days, blackened small circles for hours, now you’re given the choice; do you want to do it all over again?
If you do decide to cancel here’s… How to Cancel your LSAT score?
If you’re considering canceling your LSAT score here’s a few things to consider.
- Do the schools you are most interested in average your LSAT score or take your highest score? If most of them take the highest then you probably don’t need to cancel your score.
- Did you really do that much worse than your practice exams? If you don’t think you can make significant improvements on your next writing then don’t cancel your score.
- Do you generally suffer from test anxiety and tend to claim you “bombed” the exam only to find out you rocked it? If so, leave your score alone!
- If you really feel that something went wrong on this LSAT, you missed a full game (and you don’t normally do that), you were really sick, you freaked out and didn’t write anything for minutes at a time, or some other disaster impacted your writing then canceling your score might be a good option.
- Also, consider your ability and desire to improve between now and December. If you’ve really studied hard and don’t think you can put in much more time and effort then there’s probably no point in canceling your score. LSAT tracks statistics on those who re-take their LSAT and while some students do see a significant improvement on average there is little or no improvement.
My advice, unless something terrible happened or you really did not prepare adequately, don’t cancel your score. If you do plan to cancel, then ask yourself, what am I going to do differently to prepare for the next exam? What can I do to score higher?
