hey i wonder how much you think being weak in one subject area will hurt me.  i am a terrible spanish student but have had to take it to take 3 semester of a foreign langague.  With Spanish my gpa is about a 3.55, without it, it would be a 3.85(at a top 50 school).  do you think that i'll still be competive at top law schools? (my LSAT are solid too)

Writing an addendum explaining this fact well give you a slight bump bit basically you are in the same boat as all the other 3.55 people.

I would call attention to my strengths, rather than presumed whining about my  weaknesses ... but that's just me.

I totally feel for you. I'm the same way. Of course, I was smart enough to save my language classes until this year whereas they might not even count towards my GPA, and am taking them at a community college. But I feel your hate for learning foreign languages.
