I was actually wanting it for the LR section as well. When I took the Sep test I didn't finish the LR section because I kept having to reread.

When it comes to the LSAT, I have to constantly re-read as I suffer from sever anxiety. This slows me down quite a bit. After taking and cancelling the LSAT that I took last September I came up with the idea of taking a speed reading course to help boost my reading speed to save time on the LSAT. Does anybody here think that it would really help me on the LSAT? If so, what are some good resources I could use to boost my reading/comprehension speed (web sites, books, software/CDs?)? Thank You in advanced.

Also, go to lawschoolnumbers.com. This site is invaluable! There are many people with your gpa that got into law school, so don't get discouraged, esp. if you have a disability that can explain some of your problems in undergrad. Ace the LSAT and put together the best application you possibly can. Good luck!
Here's where I am at a disadvantage. I'm white, I do not have work experience in any type of a career, etc that many with my grades that got in. I'm worried.

First off, I have no idea what lawpad.com is, but I don't understand your question ... did you plug in every grade you ever received and it told you what your LSAC GPA would be? If you have only attended one school and they graded on a 4.0 scale there are few reasons that your GPA would drop, so I figure it might be a flaw in whatever crappy program that site runs.
Thank You. I haven't taken the LSAT yet so it all still seems so uncertain to me.Where do you find the stats chart on LSAC.org?
I have an undergrad GPA of 3.00. I just entered a calculation on the LSDAS GPA calculator on lawpad.com? Well, anyways instead of my GPA being close to or around a 3.00, it came out at about a 2.85. I am Caucasian, so I don't have the advantage of being a minority. My questions are:
I have some learning disabilities and other challenges that have made school more difficult than it should have been, would it help if I made a disclosure in an addendum.
What kind of chances would I have of getting into any law school?
How high would I have to score on the LSAT just to get a decent look?
It seems kind of bleak to me, am I justified in feeling so.
I'm hoping to get into the following schools at least:
-U of Nevada Las Vegas
-U of Wyoming
-U of Houston
-Whittier or Chapman in California
-U of Kansas
-William and Mary
-U of Wisconsin
Does anybody have any recommendations of other schools that may give me a serious look despite my GPA?
