Those taking the October 2015 LSAT have run the gauntlet and emerged on the other side, (hopefully) relatively unscathed. As post-LSAT-celebration hangovers subside, let’s delve into the chatter we’ve heard about the October 2015 LSAT. We’ve heard multiple reports that one of the Logical Reasoning sections was especially difficult, which is unusual – we often hear that there were a couple really tricky Logical Reasoning questions on the test, but it’s atypical to hear that an overall section was especially tough. In addition, we’ve heard rumors that there were no Main Point questions in Logical Reasoning, which doesn’t often happen – Main Point questions are far from the most common question type, but you can generally count on at least a few per test.
So it’s been a few days since you took the February LSAT, and you’re feeling not-so-good. Now you must decide: do you keep your February LSAT score and hope for the best, or do you assume the worst and cancel? The deadline is tomorrow, so it’s time to make up your mind.
First, the nuts and bolts: if you cancel, neither you nor law schools will ever know what you would have scored on the February LSAT. Law schools will see that you took the test and canceled your LSAT score, but one cancellation is no big deal at all. A cancelled LSAT score counts toward your limit of three LSAT administrations in two years.
In this day and age, it’s easy to buy anything from books to cars to sex to drugs online (or so I hear). But cancelling your LSAT score must still be done by old-fashioned means: by fax or overnight mail. You can, however, download the form and get more information from LSAC.
