Is withdrawal right for you?

If you decide that you’re not ready, you’re not locked in — you still have the option to withdraw your LSAT registration. Let’s talk about what that means and whether it’s right for you.

Withdrawing from the LSAT: Nerves or Warning Signs?

Two days before I took the LSAT, I scored lower on a practice exam than I had in months. I was so mortified, I started thinking about postponing until the next test. I imagine that some of you may be facing a similar dilemma.

There’s a clear difference between common nerves and legitimate reasons to withdraw from this Monday’s exam. This post is meant to help you figure out if it is in your best interest to go forward with the June LSAT, or whether you would be better served by postponing. I am going to lay out a few clear warning signs that would warrant taking the test at a later date.

When Should You Postpone Your LSAT Test Date?

Breaking news: Today, at 11:59PM EDT, is the official deadline to change your LSAT test date for anyone registered for the September LSAT.

The music might have been a little dramatic, though, as it’s not as much of a deadline as it might seem. Here’s why: after today, you can still withdraw your LSAT registration. The deadline for that is September 26th, and the withdrawal method is perfectly safe and effective (at least on the LSAT). If you withdraw your LSAT registration, law schools will never know you were registered.
