This is how i was told to do it.
It is fair. Schools have to differntiate between how difficult classes are, how difficult schools are, etc....without the LSAT it would be much more difficult to evaluate how well a person is suited for law school. In addition schools have found a strong correlation between LSAT scores and 1L grades so it is a good predictor of success in law school. I understand where you are coming from and expected to do better myself but schools need to weight the LSAt heavily.
no the poo poo aint fair. However, i do agree that there must be something else other than GPA that law schools have to judge an applicant on. ECs, PS, and WE, they really dont count for much.
