    I took my writing section September 1st and they just told me yesterday that it was cancelled because my ID wasn't in focus. Waited on the phone for an hour to have a 3 minute convo letting me know there's nothing I can do but retake. Here's an example of the worst possible writing scenario, in case anyone wants to feel better about their approved sections. No idea why it took almost 3 weeks to tell me this.

    I read on another forum (can't remember which one), that this happened to someone else. They called back again and spoke to another person at LSAC who let them send in a photo of the ID. There is no reason the photo needs to be captured on test day. A valid ID shows that you are who you claim to be. If I were you I would call back and not take no for an answer, ask for a manager, do what it takes. Other people have been allowed to send in a picture of their ID, so should you be.

    I sent a photo of my ID via email after being advised to do so on the phone. That was almost 2 weeks ago and I still haven't heard back from anyone. I hope they change this rule regarding the writing sample for future test takers.

    I am so sorry! That is terrible! Such a silly reason for a canceled section. Will they at least expedite processing if you write again? People need to know their scores... testing dates and registration deadlines are coming up fast.

    @bruhhhhhh Just asked them. There no expiration for the score preview, it'll always be available within the 6 days after your score is released. Maybe if we're lucky we'll get it by Christmas?

    @Frenchy I feel like LSAC did you so dirty and I am sorry that happened to you. Were you able to re-take the writing sample or send another ID photo?? I took my writing sample on 9/11 and it's still pending so I guess I am not getting my score back tomorrow lol! It sounds like a ton of people are not gonna see their scores til after score release.

    Just got my score. I’m honestly devastated by it. I thought it went pretty well and I consistently scored above that in my prep tests. I need to raise my score by at least 8 points in order to even be considered anywhere given my low GPA... ugh. Withdrawing from October and signing up for November. I’m just worried that November will be a little late in the cycle?

    Keep your chin up and give it your best shot in November. I was in the same spot when I took the test before since I have low GPA and had it in my head when taking the test that I had to score 99.9 percentile. I blew the test and felt really bad. Having the target score in my mind just worked against me. Be relaxed and just try to "have fun" with the LSAT. I don't think November is too late in the cycle. You'll be able to submit applications in December, which is fine I think.

    Just received my score, it is 167!! Even though it is not a 170+, but I still very happy about my score and the effort that I have put into it. It is where I expected myself to be. Especially considering the fact that when I first started, I didn't even know how to complete any of the logic games and was getting -10s on RC and LR. I took my first LSAT last year in July and came back with 158 and then a 163 in November. I then decided to take a gap year off and studied hard just for this one opportunity. I love seeing the upward progress of my score. It was completely worthy and thank you so much 7sage!!

    Hi, so I just logged on, finally go to the my score page, but there's no score?! Does anyone know what's happening..? I'm so confused. I didn't receive any emails about them cancelling or withholding my scores.

    @yeahnice did you do the writing sample?

  • yeahniceyeahnice Monthly Member

    @ARMANC74 So after a loooong wait on the phone, (I do have a writing sample on file btw!), turns out - and this was complete news to me - if you have a fee waiver application that's conditionally approved ('m waiting for tax documents to send), they'll put your whole profile on hold. Hope this helps for anyone (if any) are going through the same problem.

    Is there a way to see the breakdown on our score, like how many LR were missed, LG, and RC? I know I can't view the actual test, but I'd like to know the breakdown if possible.

    It helps me to think about the Big Picture. We all know how hard this beast is. Some people get it right the first time, other people get knocked down, even kicked when they are down, but keep going, keep fighting, and when they reach their goal the story is so much better, and their victory so much sweeter.

    You are not alone. Scored well beneath my PT average as well as my expectations. Kind of sick to my stomach. I guess our experience with this exam will continue. Gotta keep pushing, sharpening, and pray that we meet the November exam a little better prepared, and lady luck smiles a little more in our direction.

    It's undisclosed, so no. I wish we had that info too. I really want to see what I got wrong (and what this one question that tripped me up should have been).

    It's undisclosed unfortunately. I'd love to see what went wrong for me and what sections I need to work on :(

    I want to say a big thank you to JY and the rest of the 7Sage staff who helped create this amazing resource. I just got my results back, and scored a 168 - 5 points higher than my PT average. I honestly could not have done it without 7Sage.
