Just got my score back from LSAC and not exactly ecstatic, a 160 when I was mid-160s through all my practice. The main issue for me was the week before the LSAT, in which I was sick, it was a tough week at work and my grandfather (who I am close to) passed away the day before the LSAT. Thus, my concentration was snapped for the test (I am actually suprised that I scored a 160 considering the circumstances). I still thought I did well when I left the test and thus, did not cancel.
My goal school is UC Hastings (dream school Boalt), I have a 3.55 GPA. Okay for hastings, not great for Boalt.
Here is my question. Should I:
(a) Apply with my current stats and cross my fingers and hope for the best.
(b) Re-take the LSAT in December and attempt to score the mid-160s I thought I would get and if I do, write an addendum into my record regarding why my score was lower the first time.
Any advice would be great. Thanks!
