Addendum help, was fired day before LSAT...

Postby ARollins » Sat Feb 27, 2010 4:54 pm

The day before the LSAT I was let go from my job and it did impact my score. My undergrad GPA was 3.62 but my LSAT score was a 151. Here is what I have written:

Dear Admission Committee:

In reviewing my application to your law school, please take into consideration that the score I received on the LSAT does not accurately reflect my abilities. The day prior to the exam, February 5th, I was given notice that my employment was being terminated, effective immediately. The news was startling to me as just the day prior I had completed a series of interviews for promotion. However, my credentials hindered me as the hiring committee determined I was unlikely to stay with the company for the long-term. That news proved to be a great distractor for me both during my final moments of LSAT preparation and during the test itself. While my LSAT score is unfortunate, I do believe that my personal resilience and true academic abilities are demonstrated elsewhere within my application.


How does that look?

Also, "...I was given notice that position at work..." Fix that.
