Before you decide that "Yes, I should cancel my LSAT score," you must be familiar with the following per LSAC.org::
- You only have six calendar days after the test to submit a written score cancellation notice to LSAC.
- You will never know what your score was.
- Law school reports will reflect that your score was canceled at your request.
- You will not receive a refund.
- Score cancellation requests are irreversible and cannot be rescinded.
You may ask yourself, “If I can’t see the score, then how do I know I should cancel my LSAT score?” That’s a very good question. To make that determination, first start by objectively analyzing how you feel about your overall test performance.
Perhaps you felt completely lost and you guessed on all the logic games, or you know that you did not understand over half the logical reasoning questions. Come up with a best-possible and a worst-possible score scenario, and decide if you’re willing to live with the results of a “worst-possible scenario” score.
Schools will not look negatively at a single cancelled score—however, when multiple cancelled scores appear on a student’s score report without a good explanation (and schools will require an explanation for multiple cancelled scores), then it can potentially count negatively against the student’s application.
