Studying for the LSAT / Re: Why do we cancel?
« on: October 02, 2007, 11:04:36 AM »
I know someone who canceled their score and it turned out to be a 165.

??? How would this person know what it turned out to be?

Hey, I'm not sure, I really wasn't aware of the whole process when I first found out. Maybe he knew someone else who took the same test and didn't cancel, and then that guy showed him his test with the answers and he realizes which ones he got right. I don't know. Haha.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Register for Dec?

You should have waited. You can only get a partial refund. Why didn't you wait to get your scores first? The deadline to register is October 28th or something like that, well after your scores come in. I think if you cancel you only get like $47 back. At least that is what happened to me when I decided not to take it.

I believe there is already a thread about this.

It all depends. I think if the schools you want to get into take the highest score, and you are confident that you can do better if you take it again, why cancel? If they average scores, then there is more of a risk. I know someone who canceled their score and it turned out to be a 165. When he took it again he got a 156, so you never know. If you really feel like you bombed it, then I guess cancel.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Does this warrant a complaint to LSAC?

If it was just five seconds it's probably not a big enough deal to warrant a complaint.

Also, if the sound of girls screaming has that profound of an affect on you, then you may be a serial killer.

Well, usually it doesn't but I was on edge that day. The slightest noise irked me.

I took the Sept. LSAT and depending on how I do, I am going to take it again in December, meaning I can't get my apps in with my new LSAT score until the end of December. So if I have a great LSAT score along with the good GPA I already have, would I get admission over someone who sent their application in early but had weaker numbers than me? In other words, does it not matter when you send your application in (before the deadline obviously) if you have great numbers?

No, it was just that 5 seconds, nothing before that. You are probably right.

I don't know why you keep saying that the two RC sections didn't both have comparative reading passages. I had two RC's and they both had comparative reading sections.

Some schools want you to add to your application a document that explains why you think you got a higher score the second time and why they should consider only the higher scores. I don't think all schools need it, some will just take the highest without an explanation.

Studying for the LSAT / Does this warrant a complaint to LSAC?
« on: October 02, 2007, 08:42:12 AM »
I took the LSAT last Saturday at a University. For some reason, inside the building their cheerleading team was practicing. At one point during the test, the cheerleading team started screaming and cheering really loud for about 5 seconds straight. They didn't make a sound after that but it really annoyed me and it caused me to lose my concentration for a little bit. Would LSAC take that complaint seriously or would they just laugh it off?
