LSAT 154 - Should I cancel?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I just received my first LSAT score (154) with the score preview option allowing me to cancel if I am not pleased with it. I already applied to ON schools this cycle and I am planning on retaking the January LSAT. Do you think I should cancel or keep my score? Would it harm my applications to have a "cancel" on my profile? My cGPA is sub-par so I need an LSAT 160+

Thanks!

What are your practice scores like? How confident are you that you'll do better in January? If you cancel this score and then wind up doing worse in January you'll be in an even worse situation than you are now with no recourse. 

Majority (all?) Ontario schools take your best LSAT score so the 154 won't impact you if you do wind up with a better score come January.

Scores come out tomorrow, regardless of if you have score preview. How is this possible?

I would keep it if I were you. Even if your practice scores are always higher, you can never predict what will happen during your next test and it's risky since you have already applied. I think all ON schools take the highest one anyways.

A 154 looks bad, and so does a cancel. Keeping it is free.

Your law school chances are really all about getting a better score next time.

    • One probing question you can ask is "why they are hiring?" Is it to fill a vacancy or are they expanding?  (if you want to be passive aggressive, ask them why they are hiring ALL THE TIME). This of course, assumes that the answer you get would be an honest one.
    • I am still waiting for mine to update as well!
    • If you turn "aiming" into actual grades and LSAT score then yes, I absolutely think you should apply. Hell, you should apply even with a lower LSAT. You have a decent B2 and adding a decent LSAT (I'd say 160+) would give you a shot at a handful of schools, even if not a great shot. 
    • Maybe try searching for Class profiles of each of the law schools you’re interested in.    I think you can track down some Info from the past years that includes GPA and LSAT scores, as well as a lot of other data.    Not sure if that’s what you’re looking for, but hope it helps 
    • Definitely but it also depends on when references and transcripts arrived which may also have been delayed by Canada Post (depends how your uni and referees submitted their reference). They have your application and your fee so I'm sure they have your file, but just working through the mountain of work. Plus, due to COVID-19, they likely do not have easy access to their offices/mail this year and working remotely slows everything down. Patience is key, don't read into others' application dates.
