Back full time now...good news and bad news
Well, my LSATs were on Saturday, and, if I'm honest with myself, I just don't know how I did. I prepped my ass off and knew my stuff, but I'm getting smacked around by this nagging suspicion that I might have missed a key deduction on a section (or at least misinterpreted it). I have the option, for four more days, of cancelling my score. I'll never see what I got, but that's no big deal, really. What is a big deal is that I'll miss this year's admission cycle and be forced to wait another year before law school. I can deal with that I guess. We'll see...i'm debating now whether or not i'll cancel.
That's the bad news....the good news is that I'll be returning full time with a new cycle for you all to critique, poke fun at, and otherwise be amused by. Yes, that's right, I just ended a sentence with a preposition in my first "back to action" post.
I'd like to earn that custom title sometime soon, but I'm too upper class to post whore; i prefer to call it "post-escorting".

ARGGH...i just can't deal with one test holding so much sway...i'll have to chat with the Docs to see how they dealt with the MCAT.

i remember the lsat. after words i only had enough brain power to stare at a wall for 5 hours. that test was rough. as for your situation i know what your long term goals are so my only advice is to apply to the schools you want to get into. then bust your balls to be #1 in your class. then you can transfer. i believe it is easy to transfer but usualy have to stay in your teir.
i was in the same boat. i was thinking of cancelling then waitng a year for a better score but i want to practice by the time im 28 and retire at 45. im sure in the end you wiil make the right decission.
you think the lsat was bad....just wait till the finals. took one today contracts. all i can say is wow!!!

I'll be taking the LSAT this summer. How close is the actual test to the store bought practice tests. Got any additional advice?

Sorry, cancelling first thing tomorrow...I just don't have room for error here. I have very, very few unrealistic ambitions in life. I just want to be a happy family man with great kids who enjoys coming home every day....my two somewhat unrealistic ambitions are benching 405 and clerking for the supreme court.

Let the score ride!

I'm sure you did very well BG and I'd even venture to guess you hit the score you wanted too. From my own experience every time I second guessed myself I ended up screwing up.........personally I'd let it ride but you're not me and I don't know your ultimate goals concerning life so if you feel compelled to do it again then by all means go with your intuition. You're a bigger man than I Gungaden!
Btw, you couldn't scare me off. Granted, I need an aspirin pretty much every time I read one of your posts and then I have to have my daughter explain it to me but I tough it out. It's like reading a Hemingway novel.......you don't catch all the little things you missed until the second reading. hahahaha

Well you perfectionist, tight assed, thesaurus using SOB. Glad to have ya back bro. I can understand the pressure you're under. I too hold myself in very high standards. If you feel like you must cancel your scores and do it all over again, than by all means do it. I just wish one thing for you and that's peace of mind bro.... something I know all to well about struggling with. Cancel the scores, take some time to rest and recover from all your studying and test preps and go at it again next year. Good luck BG.

My guess is that you're a fairly introspective fellow and you have some sort of very good idea as to whether you performed to your expectations or not. Or then again, maybe your mind is playing tricks on you and you did better than you thought? Especially when you're striving for perfection, it's hard not to second-guess what you've done. If it were me, I would let the scores ride - but true, if you have to have scored at the very top of the heap, cancelling may be your best bet.
