It wasn't meant to be creative. You took the LSAT twice and did poorly twice by your own admission. Going to law school is a risky proposition in the first place, something most people shouldn't be doing in the first place (say, anyone who doesn't get into a top 50 school). Obviously you weren't really meant to be a lawyer. And considering how relatively simple the LSAT is, perhaps something in manual labor is more suited to your particular skill set. Hence, ditch digging.

I think that the OP either wants us to rally him back to a splendid performance, or inquire about what he may have done wrong.

After speaking with many top scoring LSAT test-takers, I'm convinced that choking on the LSAT just indicates a lack of preparation.  I've never met anyone that took many PrepTests, scored well and consistently on most of them, and ended up choking once, much less twice.

I don't go to law school, although it really isn't pertinent to the conversation at hand.

 :D ROTFL

This thread is becoming priceless. OP: Don't count your chickens before they hatch, and don't listen to about 80% of this thread.

So I choked on the LSAT for the second time...I guess it just wasnt meant to be. 

Damn the LSAT to hell.

if you want to practice in scotland, it's cheaper and better to go to law school there, and the lsat won't be a factor.

good luck

I have been seriously considering that but assuming my recommenders didn't keep a copy of their letters I would have to approach them to write another which seems rather unfair on them.

ask them anyway. i think you'll find that they've kept a copy.

There's always the CPA exam.  Just as much fun and less debt.
