September LSAT Wrap Up: To Cancel or Not To Cancel

So you took the LSAT on Saturday. It wasn’t the dreamlike experience you hoped it would be. Now you’re wondering, “Should I cancel my score?” We’re here to help.

First, let’s go over what it means to cancel your LSAT score, and how to do it. LSAC has to receive your cancellation request within six days of the LSAT. You can send your request by fax or overnight mail; there’s no way to cancel your LSAT score online. LSAC tells you exactly what to send to cancel your LSAT score.

If you cancel your September LSAT, law schools will see that you took the test, but they won’t ever know what you would have scored. And neither will you; your September LSAT score will be forever a mystery. It will, however, count toward your limit of three LSAT administrations within two years even if you cancel.

It’s been one week since June 2013 LSAT scores were released, so anyone who took that test has had some time to live a life with their LSAT score. And as is the case with every LSAT, some of you out there are considering a retake.

Good for you.

A lot of people aren’t willing to put in extra time and effort to improve their LSAT score. A lot of people accept their first score as “good enough.” A lot of people could end up with more scholarship money and acceptances if they would just suck it up and decide to retake the exam in October.

Should you retake the LSAT? Advice from a Retaker

If you took the June 2012 LSAT, you’ve received your score.

Yay?

All kidding aside, regardless of the quality of your score, you may have the impulse to retake the LSAT. Perhaps you’re the overachiever who got a 170, but you think the 178s you consistently received in practice are more indicative of your skill level. Perhaps you scored in the 160s in practice but got a 152 and wonder what happened.

Perhaps you completely tanked.
