October LSAT: The Morning Cometh

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.

Decision Time: Should You Withdraw from the October LSAT?

Here we go. It’s the final countdown. You may be wondering if you’re ready to actually take the October LSAT. Or, you may just be thinking, “October LSAT, I wish I knew how to quit you.” Whichever position you find yourself in, I’m gonna shoot straight with you.

You should take the October LSAT if…

If you would be happy with an LSAT score that is two points lower than your best practice LSAT score, then you should take the October LSAT.

If you know that you will never be able to study for the LSAT again, then you should take the October LSAT.

You should NOT take the October LSAT if…

The Clock is Ticking to Cancel Your December LSAT Score

If you took the December LSAT, there are probably a few questions you wish you could have back. You may be wondering whether you should cancel your LSAT score, and since tomorrow is the last day you can do so, it’s time to make up your mind.

First, let’s talk about how cancelling your LSAT score works. You can download the LSAT score cancellation form on LSAC’s website. Then, to cancel your LSAT score, you need to fill out and sign the form, then send it to LSAC by fax (if you’re sane) or overnight mail (if for some reason you like throwing money away). The form needs to be received by tomorrow.

Once you cancel your LSAT score, neither you nor law schools will know what your LSAT score would have been, but law schools will know that you canceled.

Cancelling Your October LSAT Score: Smart or Dumb?

Well, that was fun. The October 2011 LSAT is officially over. If all went according to plan, you’re hopefully still reveling in your success and waiting for that 180 to come to your inbox (give it about two and a half weeks). But things may not have gone according to plan, and maybe you’re thinking of cancelling.

If you’re thinking of doing this, there are a few things you need to know.

If you cancel, you’ll never know how it went. Which can suck. But law schools won’t know, either. Which can be good. It’ll be a secret that LSAC will take to the grave. Law schools will see, however, that you took and cancelled the test. If you decide to bail out on your October LSAT score, LSAC needs to receive the score cancellation form within six days of the test by way facsimile machine or the good old-fashioned post. So do it by Wednesday at the absolute latest.
