Many pre-law students returning to school this fall have experienced growing anxiety regarding the LSAT. Thatís why preLaw magazine, a National Jurist publication, recently published an article in its back-to-school issue titled, "10 Tips for the LSAT" that outlines a step-by-step game plan for acing the fear-inducing and often-dreaded exam.
Dave Thomas, author of the article, interviewed a series of experts to provide readers with a total of 10 essential tips covering everything from extensive preparation to selecting credible resources for practice tests.
One tip that most readers may not know is the option of canceling your score. On this subject David Petersam says, "If you feel you really did poorly when the test comes out, you have up to nine calendar days to cancel the score."
He further advises, "One thing to keep in mind is that rarely does your actual score mirror your practice tests. Our consultants note that, on average, your actual LSAT score ends up roughly 3 to 5 points lower than your practice average."
