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.

    • I submitted 2 academic and 1 professional and saw that there were only two showing on the online application (1 ac 1 pro) so emailed them and they said it was just their system and all had been received! 
    • Thank you! When I made the post I was freaking out but I feel a little better now. I'm remembering all those PTs I thought I bombed but ended up doing great on. The only bad thing is that I guessed on 2 RC questions because I ran out of time. I applied to Windsor, Ottawa, Osgoode, Queen's, Western, UBC (doubtful unless I rock LSAT), McGill and U of T (also extremely unlikely lol). 
    • Your LSAT is above the mean for Queens and your B2 is either at or slightly below the mean as well. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if you got admitted this cycle.    Where else did you apply?   A 163 LSAT is solid by the way    
    • not good, that's why I need a phenomenal LSAT. CGPA is 3.33 but much higher (around 3.65-3.7) when considering UBC's drops and Queen's B2. I was waitlisted at Western and Osgoode last year. I might just keep the score and go back to school in the summer to take a few courses. My problem is that my performance went down in third/fourth year rather than first year so I feel like I need to prove my academic ability some how even if it does not hugely influence my overall GPA. idk though honestly. I don't think I bombed the LSAT but I dont think I got a 165-172 like my PTs.   EDIT: by taking a few courses I mean accept that I likely won't get in this year, target next year's cycle
