I am in the same exact boat as you. I have been classified as dyslexic since second grade and score around a 164 timed without ever finishing a reading comp or LR section. Everything I have seen, in terms of admissions counselor advice, has been to take the test with accommodations because the LSAT is supposed to test your ability not disability.

I am very nervous about applying for extra time because although I have been granted extra time for other standardized tests (SAT, GEPA) I have heard that the LSAC can be very tough when it comes to granting accommodations, and it will cost me about $1,000 to get retested.

If you can get the extra time, go for it. If you truly have a disability, then you have every right to demonstrate your true ability rather then a present a false depiction of your potential.
