it all depends on what you want.
for me, it was a decision between weather i wanna go to law school (no matter wut skool i get into) next year v.s. getting into certain schools with particular rankings and all that.
i also took the dec. test. and i just sent in my cancellation request and just got it confirmed.
i also bombed the games section. lost my easy 5 points on the first game cause I freaked out and for the rules mixed up. though i don't remember too well, don't think i did all that superb for the third game v- maybe three out from that.
other sections - assuming 10 questions wrong in total (in the worst case - those were the number of questions i couldn't go back and check for cause i was rushing out of time)
so in my brief analysis - came down to about -18 points. which would very well suit into low 160s. which is not a bad score at all, but I felt it was not good enough for the schools I was aiming for.
I consulted a lot of people before I made my decision - people on this board(thank you all so much), close friends, professors, etc
They had differing opinions, but a lot of them said if it was the case I freaked out and did not optimize my potential - cancel the thing and retake it in June. maybe study a little more.
I know a lot of "what ifs" are there. It killed me to think - what if I got something like 168 - or what if I really screwed up and something like 155.
The important thing to remember is that the score is attached to your permanant record if you don't cancel.
It probably is too early to tell, but I think I made a wise decision, based on my goals and needs.
Think about this very carefully - make a realistic analysis.
it's really gonna suck to live in the "la la lsat land" for six more months... hopefully it will pass by quick...
