On a more serious note, if you believed you misbubbled, you can request that your test be hand graded taking that into consideration.

But since Feb. Test is not disclosed, how would anyone know if they misbubbled? (Aside from getting a lot lower score then expected)

I wouldn't worry about it too much, because if you can't figure out which bubble to bubble you're probably not smart enough to become a lawyer. So, if your nightmare does become reality you should rejoice, since you now you won't waste money by failing out of LS. Seems like you win either way  ;)

Yup, if you ask them to check for that. When you ask for handscoring, you have to tell them why you think you want it, ie "I started misbubbling in the second section and I think I might have skipped two questions but not two bubbles making all my answers off by 2" They'll look out for that, and adjust your score accordingly.

I found this post to be hilarious. So, are lawyers not allowed to make mistakes? If so, then it looks like becoming a lawyer would be a nightmare.

Speaking of misbubbling...

I actually misbubbled and lost 8 questions to it on my first LSAT. I noticed it because, for one, I missed that many questions in one section; I also had every correct answer one bubble early. That said, I somehow didn't circle an extra bubble on the scantron (25 bubbles for the 25 q's). I've always been told they only score your answer sheet and hand scoring checks to make sure the machine didn't record eraser marks and things like that; I'm fairly certain that is how it is. Anyone think differently?


Also, I retook and happily got 11 points higher.

I had a dream I before December score release that I scored a 165 (I was testing consistently in low 170s).  When I got my real score, it was a 166.    Recently I had a dream I scored a 172.   I hope this means I scored a 171, but I seriously doubt it lol.   Probably end up being much closed to my 166 score.

I also had a nightmare last night that I got rejected by Boalt, which is strange considering I didn't even apply to Boalt because I'm in no way competetive there.   No idea what that was all about lol.
