I don't know whether to laugh or to cry about this guy's story:

Do you think it's real?

Law School Admissions / Re: Screwed up semester--Addendum?
« on: May 14, 2007, 09:50:17 AM »
No, don't give less detail in the addendum. I think what you wrote is just right. It made clear that you were there for your friend, which no doubt took a lot of time and energy.

You're right: if ever there was a reason for an addendum this is it: it explains a weak semester, for reasons that are unlikely to happen again.

Good luck to you and your friend. What a horrible thing to happen.

That's true (and I'm worried about the exact same thing).

True enough, though considering law in the US is almost universally practiced in English, not being able to speak the language well is just bad news for anyone wanting to attend law school and become a lawyer.

That's true of course, but we don't know what Nin wants to do with his/her law degree. Maybe s/he wants to use it to work for international companies in, say, Bolivia?

Oh, come on. Not everyone's first language is English.

I'm sorry, I don't know the answer to your question, OP. Other people on this board have reported LSAC calculations taking into account both the first grade and the grade of the retake. I suppose it depends on the way they show up on your transcript, as Professor Plum says.

Mine have all been relatively very recent (thanks to an exception from the LSAC)

I missed this the first time around. I suppose you must indeed have a good reason then. (Still curious what it is though.)

Out of curiosity, what could be a legitimate reason for three lower LSATs followed by one higher LSAT?

If you really have a good reason, I would guess it's better to write an addendum than to leave the admissions committee guessing.
