Low LSAT, please critique!

Thanks for your valuable advice!
I was also thinking that the busy schedule would not be a good excuse for some reasons.

I would love to have a job where I could get 50 hours a week. I wouldn't be considering law school if I could do that. I would just stay at your job!

I took the test only on October or December for the previous three years, because I was able to take the test at the end of the annual business schedule. My LSAT score is not indicative of my true ability to excel in your law school."

I mentioned my work experience of leading legal projects at work in my PS to show that I have relevant capabilites/interests.

Thanks in advance.



Maybe provide some sort of evidence showing this is not your true ability to excel?

"....not indicative of my true ability. I have received a 4.0 in all Humanities courses"( something other than just...its not indicative i sware!!!)

just my $0.02

I don't think you should write it.

"Too busy" is a really bad excuse.

Agreed. Lots of people take the LSAT while working full time and having grown up obligations. I think an addendum like this won't make you look good.

Just retake and score at or above median for the schools you are applying to and then you don't have to worry about it.

I often work 60 hours a week... I still took the LSAT twice to get a score that may get me into a top school (during which time I had no social life).
