I have a dilemma that's been keeping me up at night. I'm scheduled to take this December 2008 exam, but I'm not sure if my impending circumstances would allow me to perform my best on the exam day. Before I go any further, let me give you some of my background information:
- This next LSAT will be my third exam. I cancelled the previous two, including the October 2008.
- Been studying consistently for over a year now. During the recent months, I've been scoring above 170 for the most part and my highest was 178.
- Other parts of my applications are finished with help from Anna Ivey: Personal Statement, Statement of Purpose, Resume, and three great LOR.
- Have about three years of work experience and continues to work at the same place.
This last point is also a problem since during the past three months I've traveling non-stop. Constant travel has been exhausting and if I were to take the exam next friday, I need to fly back to my home and take it at the designated site. Of course, there is a good chance that I will do well and get this over with. Hopefully, I will be able to submit my applications in time and start attending one of the schools of my choice in fall 2009. However, my goal is to apply with the best score and have the best chance in getting accepted to one of the top law schools. I can postpone and take the exam at a later date when I'm feeling less exhausted and stressed, but this would also mean that I have to wait another 20 months or so to start my education.
I honestly believe that I can still improve my timing on each sections and increase my accuracy a bit more. I would greatly appreciate any of your feedbacks, opinions, or advices. Thank you.
(Does this somehow resemble one of the LSAT's writing section?)
I have a buddy who took the LSAT in June and October. He is planning on taking it again in December, and believes that this is the last time he can take the exam. I never canceled an LSAT, so I have no clue as to whether or not this is true. Does anyone know if you can only take (or cancel) a certain number of LSATs in a given period?
