totally feel you on the being conflicted thing. i'm not going to cancel because i don't feel i bombed it and that seems like the only justifiable reason to cancel for anyone with the new policy.



By 'new policy' do you mean the LSAC recommendation to take the highest of your LSAT scores?

32
If I had the same test format as you, does that mean we had the same experimental?

Because the only section I know I did well on was the first one(LR) - I finished with a couple seconds to spare and felt pretty confident I got all of them right.  You can read my thread explaining what happened from there.

BTW, I'm canceling...

I only slept for 2.5 hours before the exam...just couldn't fall asleep.

I found this test pretty easy compared to most of the recent LSATs I've taken as practice tests.


BUT...I got caught in a downward spiral of negative thinking after the first section [the only section I aced, or even finished].  I wasn't used to taking the test in rapid succession of sections, and couldn't concentrate during the start of the next section. This triggered me into a terrible testing mode that I've never experienced before.  I knew of all the positive mantras to keep yourself confident, but they just didn't seem to allow me to refocus and if they did, it was way too late by then.  I hit wall after wall and everything I had read, didn't register.  I had to re-read question after question and was still unable to pick an answer confidently, something I was able to do during practice exams.  My average during practice has been in the 160s, but combined with a new environment and this inability to pick myself up, I absolutely know I had performed a lot worse than any test I have taken, including my diagnostic.  By the time was up for each of the next 4 sections, I wasn't able to get to at least the last 5 questions.  Sooo, I know I MUST cancel this test...

My GPA from a top-15 undergrad school is incredibly low, making this test my only saving grace...


I can't wait another year and apply next cycle, that is not an option I am willing to consider.  This leaves me with the Feb. '07 administration as the sole opportunity for giving me any chance to get into ANY law school. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know at least some law schools accept the Feb. LSAT, and was wondering if I would have any chance of getting into them.  Can anyone direct me to people who have submitted only their Feb. LSAT and still got into schools for the immediate coming cycle?  Have any of you done so?  My GPA is a 2.6.  What score would I need to be able to get into a tier-2 law school?  Also, what schools are known not to widely discriminate against a Feb. LSAT. 

I am aware that competition at this point is extremely high, because most schools have rolling admission and have already secured many of the available admission slots. 

I just want to know if I have any realistic chance for this cycle, or are my dreams for '07 pretty much crushed...

His section might not have been an experimental; there are multiple forms that have different experimentals, all in different sections.

However, I might have had the same Test Form as you did.  This was my test's organization:

(1)  LR - 26?
(2)  RC - 28?
(3)  LR - 25?
(4)  LG - 22?
(5)  LR - 25? [i think]

Do you know which LR was the experimental?  Because my first LR was my best section...

So does that mean you're not going to cancel this score and just retake it?

Or are you unsure...

I don't think I have any other option.

The test itself was easier than most recent exams, but I know I terribly underperformed to the best of my ability.

The testing environment killed me, I got so discombobulated after the first section[LR] and that threw me into a downward spiral.  My confidence level plummeted and I wasn't able to recover any of its remnants. 

This extremely disappoints me because I don't think I'll ever get as great a look of the LSAT as this one had.

Do you know where I can find out a list of schools that accept Feb. LSATs?

And are you planning for fall '07 matriculation?

For those of you taking it in Feb. - Are you applying for Fall '07? Or fall '08?

I thought most schools don't take Feb. LSATs...

Were any of you able to print out a legible copy?

I tried Photoshop and everything to get the words darker and more defined but to no avail...


Any image-pros in here that know how to boost a PDF's quality and pixelation?

The one that's been circulating this forum is UNREADABLE. 

I tried every which way to get it to print so I can take the test without having to spend all my energy trying to decipher the words.

I wish there was a way to get a legible copy before Friday...
