To Cancel or Not to Cancel?


Recommended Posts

  • Applicant

So the August exam was my first LSAT ever and I scored a 162 when I was PTing in the high 160s (with my highest score being 173). I know that the general consensus is don't cancel a score but my top choice for law school is McGill, which takes the average LSAT score. Granted, McGill's median is 164 and my score is not far too off, but I know that I could do better this coming October (the exam day was a nightmare with anxiety and everything) so I'm hesitating if I should cancel my score or not. I think the rest of my application is pretty strong, with a 4.1X GPA and strong extracurriculars, work experience, and LORs. What would do you if you were in my shoes? Any help would be much appreciated!

People often PT higher than their actual scores. Let's say you score 169 on your next attempt. You might regret not cancelling for McGill, but I can't see it really hurting you. 

Let's say you score 158-160 on your next attempt. You'd really be kicking yourself for cancelling, and this WOULD make difference with many of your backup schools as well as McGill.
