Law School Admissions / Re: Early Descision Denial from Hastings

Another deferral here, my index is 3.0 at Hastings.

There is only one acceptance on LSN  so far.  Where are all the other acceptances?  Do you think there were many?

i believe that some of my Monday sections or parts of those sections, were the same as the Saturday test - the bus game for intstance.

mbruc, you had bach ruffles and what was the other RC section?


did you have purple weeds???

HUH?

all i know is that my Monday's test had some of the same games, and some of the same RC passages...I didn't know this was possible.  Because there were a bunch of different versions, its making it so difficult to figure out which section was experimental, which is pretty crucial.

I did NOT have raffles on my test and I had 2 RC - one was gvt subsidized art and the other was purple weeds.

BUT i took it on the west coast, which could have something to do with it - are you guys east coasters?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Advice: I'm in the cancellation boat

3.61 from Emory, a ton of awesome internships, leadership experience, language, from what I think a pretty kick ass PS that I'm proud of, one amazing LOR that I read and I'm guessing two other pretty good ones
non URM

emotions got the best of me, couldn't focus on the test cause I was so worried about how much time there was left and how important this test is, couldn't stop thinking about the few options I have here...

I am also thinking of embarking on the cancellation boat.  I took the Sept 07 test, did horribly (for me), a 158, was scoring in 164 range.  Worked really hard, got my PTs to 169 range, and feel like I bombed this test.  Last time the RC did me in, and this time I feel bad about the RC (although I'm not sure because I haven't been able to determine which section is the experimental) and also the games, which are usually solid for me, 0 or -1.

I'm looking at these numbers now, that I had to basically blindly guess on:
2 or 3 LR
5 RC (if this one was not the experimental, I had 2 RC)
3 or 4 games

plus the ones that I would have got wrong in the first place.

Any ideas of what I should do?  Should I wait to see what I got?  Cancel and just deal with the low score?  My biggest issue is that I live in Northern Cal, and can't really leave for another few years, my husband just started law school here, so my options are limited.

Any advice would be most appreciated!

just listened to the Kaplan report - their results say that Saturday's test had 3 different forms, and I imagine that a handful of those seconds were repeated on today's Monday test.

still trying to understand which RC was scored on the Shabbat observer test, if someone can figure that out.

thanks!
