what did you get on your practice LSAT?  You really can't start talking about safeties until you know what score you might get.

There is a writing portion although people disagree on how important it is. It is not graded, but is indeed photocopied and sent to schools you apply to. According to some it is rarely looked at, and if it is looked at it is not given that much heed. Others say that law schools like it because it shows how well you can form an argument under time pressure. I think that it depends on the school, and it canít hurt to put some time into it. But I would not sweat it to much. The scored portion is by far more important.
