What happens if my newest LSAT score is lower...

If I don't decide to cancel, and I submit some applications now, but then later find out that God forbid perhaps my December score is lower than my previous one, would that affect how the admissions see my application?

    If you're applying to schools in the states, I don't think you have much to worry about. All the experts seems to agree that most schools only care about your highest score. If you're applying in Canada, you might be negatively impacted.

    Idk about all canadian law schools, but quite a few mention that they average out all your LSAT scores, and may take into consideration significant leaps.

    Yup! I know, for example, Alberta averages them. So definitely check out which schools average and which don't.
