while true that a law school will see two scores..one high and one low, it's not nec'ly the case that another candidate with a single high score will punk you (OP espresso's scenario, above).
Schools will see two scores and look at your GPA. If you did badly in school, they'll view the high score as luck, and average the scores in their assessment of your candidacy; if you did very well in school they'll be more apt to accept your say so (or your advisor/recommender) about having a bad day. Of course, you need to give them something to hang that opinion on, or it's all guesswork.
