I have to say that I felt nervous at first but once the proctor said to start all of that nervousness left and I became focused. I took the test at the University of Richmond. The testing environment there is perfect, great temperature, comfortable chairs, ample space,lighting, and actual table to sit at. I think the environment helped create the calmness that I felt about the testing itself. I was surprised at how unprepared some people were. There were some who came in late complaining about parking, one guy had to ask the proctors for a pencil because he only had a mechanical and someone asked the proctors when we would get our scores. I was just shocked that you could take a test like that and not know those things. Those who were late complained about the lack of parking but since I obsessed over details I visited the site the day before since I wasn't familiar with the area and I got a pass from campus police to park anywhere. Basically my advice to any reading this is to be prepared it will help you stay calm. Now my next step is to beg for LOR's.

Thanks for the responses. Now I'm going to continue working on the LSAT and I will post back when I get some results.

So I am considering law school but I was convicted of a drug posession 10 years ago, I wasn't selling just simply in posession of a the wrong substance. I did no time for this but served one year probation. Since then I have had to deal with a series of doors being closed in my face because I made a stupid mistake at a party.
From what I understand and according to my state's board of bar examiners the conviction does not prohibit me from practicing law but it may prevent it.
When I apply this fall would it be detrimental to bring this to prospective schools attention in my personal statement? All of that is behind me and I have been concentrating on doing good works in the world. Second, if anyone has any firsthand experience about how the bar generally deals these issues it would be appreciated.
