On canceling scores I understand that it does nothing to affect your record. If there was any reason to be worried about it being a scar on your record you could always make up an excuse like you were fighting the flu at the time and so you felt you didnt give your best performance.

If there was any reason to be worried about it being a scar on your record you could always make up an excuse like you were fighting the flu at the time and so you felt you didnt give your best performance. Hey, where did you hear this? I really need some verification right now. I was on a business trip all last week and took my books with but the studying just did not happen. I came back sick as a dog, and I really can't focus. I am scared and seriously thinking about switching to December, but am also open to taking it in October and cancelling if I don't feel my performance is up to par with my practices...do we automatically have to include an addendum with our apps to explain cancellations or something? Someone please give me some sage advice because I'm cross-eyed with fever and want to vomit over my preptests. Thank you.
I am sure that cancelling does not count against you. There could be a million reasons you cancelled (flu, were one-off when filling in your bubbles all the way down and didn't realize until time was called, had to leave the room during the middle of the test due to food poisoning, sister died the prevoius morning and you couldn't concentrate as a result, etc. etc.) so there is no justification for anyone to draw any conclusions from a cancelled score. Also, some people are going to cancel if they bomb just one game and think they are only going to get a 170 as a result, but others will keep a 150 and would cancel if they thought they were down around 145. So who knows what a cancelled score means. A cancelled score is just a blank and I am sure it is not even reported to the law schools.
