Hey Everyone,

I've been battling food poisoning (yeah great time to get it!) since Thursday night and was unable to make the LSAT this morning. I'm wondering what it's going to look like on the LSDAS report and if I will be penalized for not going. Is it technically a cancellation of the score even though I didn't see a test? I wish LSAC was open on Saturdays! Has anyone experienced something of the sort? I plan on taking it in Dec and not eating for a few days before :-)

Thank you all.

Hello everyone.

First of all, I am not interested in getting into a top tier school. I'm looking at Vermont Law, Roger Williams, and Western New England. I'd like to go into public interest law so not looking to join a major firm or anything.

I started off college at a community college where I had a 4.0 GPA for my freshman year, then transferred to a university where I ended up partying too much and being placed on "academic probation". My GPA was absolutely horrible. I then took some time off and worked abroad for a year and went back to school to complete my junior and senior years at another university where I have a 4.0. I also have been working at a legal clinic for the past year.

I am currently studying for the LSAT and will take it in October. Not sure how I'm going to do as I don't do so hot on standardized tests. I'm not expecting myself to do over 160.

Question is- should I throw all hopes of going to law school with my undergrad record? I know it isn't possible for me to pull off some LSAT miracle!
