Didn't LSAC accommodate you? If so, I don't exactly think that having Crohn's disease furnishes an entire explanation for your substandard score. Theoretically at least, accommodations should have put you on the same playing field as everyone else.
I hate to rag on someone with your disease and I do feel sorry for you, but your hubris bothers me a little.
I agree a bit here.
I'm sympathetic to the OP, but at the same time - "very smart, bright" is not something that is relative to your abilities - but as an absolute measure of ability. Again, it's just my opinion.. but in the real world: there are those who can and those who can't.
I mean, my simple point here is that people with extraordinary talents who did really well in UG (as OP indicates she did) and were accommodated by the LSAC typically don't wind up at Ave Maria. Sans accommodations, I could see that occurring. But with accommodations plus great GPA at a good school, an extraordinarily talented person should realistically muster something better than a TTTT.
I really hate to be mean in this situation, but I could never stand self-congratulatory posts.
Lol, mean? I don't really consider your post mean, but, more so, ignorant. Of course, then again, I cannot stand dry sarcasm mixed with a double scoop of ignorance.
If you would follow the linkage quite well, you would realize the only accommodation I received was extra bathroom breaks: NOT extra time to cope with the moderate pain I was in. As well, I did receive offers from other tiers, but this one offered a great scholarship.
Thus, THE POINT is, ADHD could have possibly been a problem all along as my illness progressed, but was never even considered until my physician in Naples recognized it!
There are those who are congratulators (me) and those who are haters....hmmmm...I wonder which one you are?
Toodles and Thank you!
