Thank you to everyone for such kind words I am next to tears and I know I am better than a 141. I was hoping that some people would agree that with some of my extras (I am a published author an olympic hopeful, more EC's than you can count with ten people's fingers etc) and a solid UGPA (3.9) and LSAC GPA (3.77) and the rest of my application is very strong and well contructed. I mean for god's sake I have been on LSD since Aug of 2003, and have been actively reseaching the lawschool applications process since 2001-2002. I mean I took my first diag (Kaplan) in October or so 2002 and got a 124 (!!!). Granted that was not indicative of anything...

I know what my strategy is, I just don't know of its effectiveness. I am just so sad to see this as a result of all my hard work. Belive it or not I studied for this test over a year and a half and took over 25 preptests and a class and I still end up with this?? My disorder is the only explanation that sounds feasible. I know now that this test does not measure any sort of intelect and is entirely determinative of having all your faculties (duh, right) Why couldn't LSAC just grant me accommodations I know I deserved them. It would of been a difference of 75 percentile points. Dammit! Google some topic around LSAC screwing over people who NEEDED accommodations like cerebal palsy (Sp- at this point like I care) and other documented reasons ofr accommodation...

To the OP of the original post: @#!* you. 

I don't mean to be mean but when someone says that in a thread title  "Re: My score: Beyond my worst possible nightmare."  and then post that they got in the 160's this makes me sick to me stomache.

Gere is a post I just wrote in another thread, which is all too appropriate for this one:

I have already cried once, and hopefully not again. Despite the consensus of 160+ posters I do have reason for my bad ass score and a documented one. I requested LSAC accommodations and was denied and for that I am stuck with worst case senario. I have a 3.77 LSAC GPA and my LOR's are very strong so will be my PS and I am going to adenda my LSAT in two parts:

1) I have a documented visual/neurological disorder and was not accommodated for it and

2) I have a history of poor staadardized test taking (I am not whinning that I am bad at standardized test I am describing my situtuation and explaining that my low standardized test scores greatly underscore my UGPA (SAT vs UGPA for example) and this is squarely due to my documented disorder.

I was born with this problme and have never had to request accommodations until I feel into the realm of visual processing required by SAT, LSAT etc...

BTW my bad score is a heart-wrenching 141.

PS I am pouring my heart out here as a way of venting/coping. If you flame me for my 141 you have simply demonstrated what kind of low-life lawyer you will be, and I will be looking forward to demolishing your egos in law school and or the real world. (aimed at flamers)

I wouldn't reconsider going to law school ever, even with my pathetic score.

I guessed that I did better than I did... I eneded up scoring the average of the highest and lowest score...

I knew I should have been accommodated for this f*cking test, I deserve in the 160's as shown in my accommodated testing practice tests.

141  :'( :'(

Flame me all you want, I will still be a better lawyer than those who wish to exploit my honesty.
