I have been studying by myself and my LSAT goal was a low 160s. I scored a 156 then 155 then another 155 and sense then my scores haven't been higher than 152... I know I can't get a refund and my game plan is to sign up here at 7sage to prepare for the next LSAT. Anyways this leads to the question is it better to not take the June test at all? Or should I give it a shot to get a feel for the test? Maybe if I feel confident and think I scored in the mid 150s I don't cancel my test score and I have that score in my pocket. You guys and girls here seem to know this test better than any other place on the internet. What do you think?

    I think conventional wisdom is that don't take the test until you feel you are ready, since you only have 3 chances to take the test.

    And a cancel would count as one of my 3 chances?

    i would prefer to take the test once and be done with it. but like you i am not confident on how i will perform on the test come test day. test anxiety is real. i did some research and came across these articles:

    i also emailed my top schools, and asked them how they feel about retakes. i read on the admission ticket that canceled scores do count toward the 3 test takes in 2 years thing. so in my mind you might as well keep the score. currently, i am doing my best to continue to improve my scores and if i do not like the score i receive i will be doing the September retake. best of luck to you!
