That's odd. Your #'s are good, and you went to an Ivy...how in the hell did you get waitlisted at Cardozo? You kill somebody?

You kill somebody?Actually I'm not a murderer; in fact my extracurriculars are extensive, and all of my recommenders personally sent me their letters and they were quite stellar. The truth and crux of the matter is that a 156 is detrimental, and extremely hard to recover from, no matter who you are or what you've done. My case is the perfect example. I'm trying hard to land on my feet but it isn't easy. I did write an LSAT addendum to the schools, but I didn't want to make up some BS about how I had the fever during the exam the first time or how my dog died. In fact I really didn't do anything much different between the two exams except pay a little bit more attention to time. I explained to the schools that the 156 was not indicative of where I was practicing and that the 166 was a more reflective measure but maybe they wanted more of a reason, who knows? However, I am content knowing I gave them the truth and I'm confidant at least one top school will see past a single bad test score.
