This kind of story is what personal statements are made for. Here are the next steps:

1) Use this story.
2) Emphasize the actions you've taken that make you the person you are today.
3) Profit.

It is truly unfortunate that you had to go through this, but the silver lining is that you can create a very emotionally impactful statement. Good luck, and I hope that you do well.

You have a story that will make a killer PS if it is well-written. This post is written pretty poorly, so I would get to work soon so you can go through extensive edits. Depending on your numbers, there is certainly the potential for a life-changing cycle.

I'm actually a pretty good writer, but on a forum like this I wasn't really trying to write eloquently as much as I was just trying to get the gist of the situation down so I could get some feedback on the topic as a whole. As far as my numbers go, I have yet to take the LSAT (registered for this upcoming September), but my LSAC GPA is a 3.69 so I'm hoping that if I can get at least a 160 on the LSAT I should be a pretty strong candidate. Thank you for the input!

I don't think OP was going to copy and paste from this forum, into Microsoft Word and then save the document as his personal statement. Thanks for the tip though, pal!

You are in good shape. A 170 would be like a golden ticket.
