I was visiting UPENN a week ago and I was speaking with the Dean of Admissions. One kid asked if he had bad handwriting would they hold it against him. "No, but we do read that, in fact I just finished reading one where the kid ended his statement "AND NOW IM GONNA GO HAVE A FEW BEERS!" Ya, that kid is not going to get in...."
Went straight home signed on to LSAC and re-read my reading sample to make sure it wasn't me....thank god it wasn't.
