yes, the LSAT does seem to be the deciding factor that will keep me out of the top schools...that, and my study abroad gpa had a weird converstion that brought my gpa down (although i guess this might be helped by the degree gpa on the lsac report)...which just absolutely sucks since i took the lsat twice...the first time i got some twisted test anxiety problem and bombed, and the 2nd time i did ok but definitely scored in the bottom of my scoring range...but what can you do? admissions is largely a numbers game, and i don't have the soft factors or urm status to overcome that. sadly, such is life. hoping for some sort of miracle from my "dream" (i can't even call them reach" schools, but learning to accept that other schools are ok too. really just hoping this admissions process will end soon.
Retake the LSAT if you scored abnormally low and you're confident you won't choke again. Otherwise, if you have a legit problem, have a doctor write a generic letter stating that you suffer from anxiety. I don't know how LS's will interpret it, but the admissions game doesn't seem like the time to be bashful about making excuses.
Is this a legit disorder or did you just have strong anxiety? A lot of people get hit with anxiety on test day and even the days leading up to the test, unless you can be diagnosed with something I don't think axiety is an excuse.
