The Recent Changes to the LSAT Writing Section and Law School Applications, Explained

When LSAC sends an email out to everyone with an active LSAC account, you know there’s about to be some serious, capital-“N” News announced. And last Wednesday, that’s exactly what LSAC did. So when I got that email, I didn’t read passed the first four words of the subject line — which read, forebodingly, “Changes to the LSAT” — before frantically opening the email to see which changes LSAC wrought to the exam. Would they finally clarify how the Logic Games section might be changing? Would they add even more test administrations? Would they concede that, actually, the digital LSAT is more trouble than it’s worth, and go back to the traditional paper-and-pencil test?

What Canceling Your LSAT Score Means for Your Application

You just finished your first LSAT. You’re nervous, exhausted and just happy it’s finally over with. But mostly terrified; how awful will your score actually be? Well, you could always cancel, up to six days after the test date, and on this particular July exam LSAC will very generously offer to show you your score before you decide whether you want to do so.

So, what’s the catch? Law schools will be able to see that you decided to cancel a test on your score report, and may hold that against you. But will they?
