The difference in my LSAT scores (September 2009 and December 2009) can [strike]simply [/strike]be attributed to a lack of time during the summer months. My mother developed numerous health problems in June and I was the only one who could take care of her. Most of my time was spent caring for her and I became the new head of the household. I also took over fifteen college classes during this time, [strike]which I needed for various graduation requirements[/strike]. With all this going on, I wasn't able to fully focus on the format and question types of the exam. [strike]With LSAC's new policy,[/strike] With all of these commitmentsI missed the postpone deadline and couldn't move my test date to December.


Just some quick edits. One, don't talk about how you needed classes to graduate. You took classes, you graduated (are graduating), that's good enough. Also, did you attend fifteen class sessions or complete fifteen classes. If it really is the former, maybe I'd sound better if you simply said something like, "while caring for my mother I also managed to finish complete some college credits." Rework as you think best.
