February LSAT – Post-Mortem

For those of you who took the LSAT today, congratulations!  Here are a few things you may want to consider, regardless of how well you feel you did:

1. If you know you did poorly on the exam, it probably makes sense to cancel your score.  Remember that you have a short window of time in which to do that.

2.  If you are not sure how well you did on the exam, it may make sense NOT to cancel your score.  Please contact me at mark@scoreitup.com if you have questions about that.

3.  If you feel you did not do to well, you have some important decisions.  Assuming you were intending to apply (or did apply) to law school for Fall 2018, you may want to give some serious thought to postponing law school for a year and retaking the LSAT. Small differences in one’s LSAT score can make enormous differences in gaining acceptance to law school and earning scholarship money. Also, if you postpone law school for a year and retake the LSAT, you will be in a position to apply for “early-enrollment” consideration for Fall 2019.

4.  If you do decide to retake the LSAT, be sure you continue to prepare diligently for it.    Consider how you want to prepare for the LSAT next time and plan accordingly.

6.    Finally, don’t stress about it.  Stressing about a test you already took will do you absolutely no good.  The only thing it will do is make the next few weeks of your life a lot more unpleasant, and you will get nothing in return.  You’ve earned the right to relax a little and enjoy the rest of your day!
