People mess up about 100 times more than robots who cannot drink, text, eat or fall asleep while driving.  On top of it imagine the waiver you will need to sign to get your hands on one of those robot cars?
Quantity vs Quality, I'm saying it will be a major suit. And the victim getting hit likely didn't sign the waiver.
Plus you can't waive everything, even if you sign it. Just because its in writing and consented to doesn't make it enforceable.
There would still be money to be made.

On side notes to that robot car idea, do you think open intox, "driving" drunk or asleep will still be illegal?

I take it you are an auto accident attorney?

I'd leave the "why I didn't do good" part when its something like this. LOTS of law school is MCQ (and so is the bar exam)

University of Texas has an optional essay for standardized test performance issues.

"Standardized Test Performance: Candidates sometimes seek to establish that their academic potential is inaccurately reflected by standardized tests or that one LSAT score is more representative than another. If you believe this to be true in your case, please explain."

My SAT was average, yet my college GPA was great. I took the LSAT three times and never broke the 160's.

I want to explain my struggle with multiple choice exams, and how I thrive when its essay or free response.

My Question is how should I structure it, and what is a good length? Any input is appreciated.

Yes, no automobile accident means PI attorneys will be hurting - there ain't much money in slips, falls, and emotional sleights.  Since the older ones are likely untrainable they will have to join the other 100 million people who don't work and never will unless the can muscle out the existing baggers at Safeway and greeters at Home Depot.  The fact state bars don't even see it coming shows how little they care for their members.  You saw it here first but will read it later at the bottom  front page personal interest story on the digital WSJ ten years from now.
Fair enough. You seem to have thought this out. I really don't think robot cars are an issue, but I can see some GREAT lawsuits for strict products liability and maybe even class action against companies when they (as all things) mess up.

Both DL and unaccredited fixed facility school students must take the exam.

California should permit these schools to upgrade or close them out.  However, state bars and the practice of law in general is backassward so instead of allowing DL schools to upgrade to state accreditation; we have this stupid FYLSE exam.  What do you expect from a profession based on precedent; not much in the way of innovation.  The self driving car will do much to kill off the profession, when there are no more auto accidents, at least 20% of the profession will leave.
I was getting at the fact that "accredited" non ABA don't require it.
Is the self driving car meant to be a metaphor here? If you mean personal injury suits those will still exist even with robot cars, the style will just change.

If I honestly thought I was on just a thin line where the smallest gust of wind from a cricket burping could knock me into the accepted or denied camps, I wouldn't leave it to myself to try to get it right. I'd PAY someone to do it.

I know that there are essay writing companies out there, and even thesis writing companies (I knew unethical people who used them to get A's in paper classes) So do you think there are companies that specialize in admissions writings? (retired admissions staff and the like)

No way to tell, could be bogged down in discovery or negotiations or just as you say.
Time will tell I guess. I personally don't think their case has enough to win anyways. I think it would likely survive an action against them for summary judgement, but I'd still expect any place with money to move for it. Novus I suspect is just hoping it all goes away on its own if they ignore it long enough (and it just might do just that too)
