How do you cancel your LSAT score?

    The deadline for cancelling your June 2011 LSAT score is Sunday, June 12, 2011 (assuming you took it on June 6, 2011)

    Now that the June 2011 LSAT is over, you may be considering cancelling your score. Thankfully, LSAC makes it easy to cancel your score, but there are still steps you need to follow. What do you need to do to make sure your June 2011 LSAT score gets cancelled?

    A few important things to remember:

    1. Requests need to be received by LSAC within 6 calendar days following your test date. Requests received after this deadline will not be honored.
    2. LSAC needs to receive your cancellation request in writing using their specific Score Cancellation Form. No other form of request (email, phone call, voicemail, telegram, letter) will be accepted.
    3. The Score Cancellation Form must be filled out completely. If any information, or your signature, is missing, the form is considered invalid, and your score cancellation request will not be honored.
    4. Keep proof (fax transmittal sheet, certified mailer) that you sent your score cancellation in. If, for whatever reason, LSAC does not receive it, you'll have to provide proof that you sent it in before the deadline in order for them to honor your request.


    From the LSAC.org Score Cancellation page:
    Valid score cancellation requests must include:

      • your statement that you wish to cancel your LSAT score
      • your name, LSAC account number, and the last four digits of your Social Security or Social Insurance number
      • the test date and test center name and code number
      • your signature (unsigned cancellation requests will not be processed)


    Send your request to:

    Law School Admission Council
    Score Cancellation
    662 Penn Street
    Box 2000-T
    Newtown, PA 18940-0995

    or fax 215.968.1277.

    Shortly after your score cancellation request is processed, LSAC will mail you a confirmation. If you do not receive this confirmation within four calendar days after your request was submitted, contact LSAC immediately to verify that your request was processed. You can confirm processing of your score cancellation request in the LSAT Status section of your online account. You may also call 215.968.1001; allow at least three days for your request to be processed before you call. If it appears that your score cancellation request was not received by the deadline or has not been processed, you may submit proof that you sent, and LSAC received, your request within the required period. It is your responsibility to keep proof of LSAC's receipt of your cancellation request. However, no such documentation will be accepted beyond 14 calendar days after the test.

    What happens if you cancel your LSAT score?

    1. You will not know how you did on that particular LSAT. A score will not be released to you.
    2. You will not receive a copy of your answer sheet.
    3. You will receive a confirmation of your score cancellation.
    4. You will (if your test was disclosed) receive a copy of the test questions and the answer key.
    5. You will not receive a refund of the LSAT registration fees.
    6. You will not be able to ask that your score be reinstated in the future.
    7. Schools will be able to see that you cancelled your score.
