Hi...I believe this was touched upon in one of the recent episodes, but just to confirm, is the received wisdom nowadays that score cancellations are NOT taboo? I took the exam twice a few years ago - cancelled once and then took it again and unfortunately suffered a panic attack that resulted in a score lower than when I first started studying for the LSAT.

So, two exams - one cancellation and one recorded with an abysmal score. I want to dip my toes back into the water (given the ideal conditions for July) but am concerned that another potential cancellation ( lol, love my optimism!) may look really bad, given my previous cancellation.

Thanks in advance....

Hi Manchas,

The times have really changed recently, and since the high score is the only score schools now care about, they've largely started ignoring cancellations. So, a few cancels are meaningless. If you hit 4 or more, then you'd probably want to explain it, but even then they don't care if you also nail a high score. So, your two cancellations (should that come to pass) won't matter at all, especially when compared to the chances of a higher score! So go for it :)

Thanks!

This message is for Mr. Jon Denning. Thank you. You and Mr. Dave K.are correct for me to watch for patterns and to keep track of these so I know how to approach and answer the questions thereafter. With that said, I wanted to say that when you did the video on Mr. Jon June 2018 LSAT logic game #3, The Nominations where one of either variable could be the mayor or councilor is similar to the setup of the game #1 you did in prep test 78 game: Special Project Workers where the setup is eerily similar with one of the variables is a leader and so on with the setup. I just wanted to emphasize the point that I have seen a similar pattern in both and the way you explain Mr. Jon in both videos, the setup has helped and I wish to say thank you and I hope to do well.
