It's part of my new persona, muffincake!
I took the LSAT in June and scored a 164, took the test again in December and scored a 178 (much closer to my PT scores). During the test in June, I had a nosebleed in the 4th section that kept me from answering 3 questions in that section. I decided not to cancel because I thought I managed the rest of the test pretty well and I dreaded the idea of seeing a "cancelled" score. However, the nosebleed turned out to have affected my performance in section 5 much more than I anticipated.Wow I got a 164 on the Dec session. I had to tend to a low whihc prevented me from answering all questions in the first section. I'm planning on rewriting in June.
If I were to write an addendum, I don't plan on using the nosebleed as any sort of excuse. If anything, the addendum would be more about my mistake of not cancelling and overconfidence in my performance. Should I even include the nosebleed or write an addendum at all? Would an addendum work against me? Should I let the score increase speak for itself?
Also, my GPA is 4.0 and given my (164+178/2 = 171) LSAT, what are my chances at HYS? I know HYS are all reportedly averaging and not taking the higher score, but a 14 point increase maybe deserves special consideration?
I think people should be more specific about this. It's one thing to just "move out" and go live in a dorm/off-campus housing at a university if your parents are paying for it. It's another to ACTUALLY move out under your own power -- you pay the bills, you pay the tuition, you do it all.Alrighty, when's the first time y'all moved away for the first time and had to take on such responsibilities as living expenses?
Simply living away from home is really not that big of a deal, you whiners.
