I took the LSAT in June and scored 170. However, I had a couple "horror story" experiences and scored only 153 and 149 the first two times taking the test. I realize now that I should have cancelled the first two scores, but after taking all of the Next Ten LSATs under actual testing conditions I never scored below 167. I just did not think that the things that happened would have such a great effect. Anyway, it's too late to do anything about those scores now other than write an addendum.
When looking at my chances of admission, must I limit myself to schools whose LSAT numbers are around my average LSAT score – 157? Conversely, is there a realistic chance that schools will take the large disparity between the scores into account and use the most recent score or something close when making an admission decision? I would appreciate any input you have!
