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 email@example.com if you have questions about that.
3. The nice thing about taking the June LSAT is that you have a lot of options, assuming you plan to begin law school in Fall 2018. The most obvious option is to simply retake the LSAT in September 2017, if you are not fully satisfied with your LSAT score. Small differences in one’s LSAT score can make enormous differences in gaining acceptance to law school and earning scholarship money.
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.
5. You are early in the application cycle, but start thinking about your law school applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, etc. You will want to have those applications ready to be sent out in early November 2017, if possible.
6. If you feel you did not perform quite as well as you did on practice LSATs, don’t despair – although it may feel a little disappointing, that is not unusual.
7. 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 three 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!
