The sections are not in the same order for everyone.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Sabbath December Exam

My sections went LR RC LR LR LG. I am hoping against hope that the experimental was section I....I've never had much difficulty with LR and section one completely shook my confidence for the rest of the test. If it was actually credited, I am that much worse off.

Just got home from taking the Monday LSAT and I am *so* discouraged. I had been getting 163-167 on my practice tests, and I put so much effort into geting my logic games score into the respectable range. I can easily imagine having gotten into the low 150s today. The first section, LR, really threw me for a loop and shook my confidence for the rest of the test (I usually have minimal difficulty in LR).  I'm thinking about cancelling my score, but I feel as though I did about everything I could (during my practice tests I was only missing 2 - 4 in LR and less than that in RC, logic games killed me at first but my score improved over time) and so I am not sure what would be different in Feb., except being less (or maybe more?) nervous. And it seems like Feb would be too late to make it in anywhere this year. I'll be graduating in May with a masters in social work and I guess I could work in the field (although this does not appeal to me) and apply/reapply with a hopefully better score, but I was hoping to avoid that, and I'm not sure what difference it would make. I thought NYLS was going to be a safety, now I am hoping against hope that I have a shot there (any ideas? 3.4, great recs, good ECs (but will they care?). Anyway, advice would surely be appreciated!! I hope everyone else's test went exactly as they had hoped. -t

Thanks, Dusty, hopefully things will turn out better than I fear. I hope your test went well!

I posted under "saturday sabbath test". I, too, am considering cancelling. The thought of doing it over again is hard to even think about right now, though. It really went far worse than I had imagined it could (my practice tests had been 163-167, but I think mid 150s might be even too optimistic for today). It's a hard decision. Good luck with whatever you decide. I know I wouldn't be in much shape to take this test after driving 2+ hours (manhattan to brooklyn was enough of a schlep for me), so if you decide to cancel maybe you could get a closer center next time, or stay over the night before or something. Anyway, I read this advice on here which seems sound (sorry I had copied it and now can't find the name of the poster, but THANK YOU to them):

to the OP - definitely apply now, with whatever score you get, and
re-take in Feb. if you feel comfortable. If you apply to schools
where your December score is within the range (at least 20% chance
of admission), they'll likely not make a decision on you by
February.  At worst, you'll be put on a waitlist.  Once your
(better) February score comes in, it is automatically sent to the
schools, and depending on their policy they will either average it
with December or just consider the higher score.  So, in the
best-case scenario, they'll admit you with your better score.  And
in the worst-case scenario, if you're already on the waitlist, you
can wright a letter to them asking the school to consider your new,
higher February score.

Just posted under "saturday sabbath test" about my horrible experience today. Suffice to say, it was far harder than I anticipated. My practices had been 163-167 and now I am afraid I will be lucky to break 155. What to do? How did you feel about it? -t
