I understand nobody (except myself) goes into law school expecting to be below median, but you shouldn't go to a law school unless you're willing to graduate from that particular school at the middle of the pack since that's most likely where you'll be.
I just checked out your profile... Do you regret your decision not to retake?
Not at all, but then, my test day score was totally in line with my practice tests. If I were in your position and had consistently scored significantly above my actual performance on PTs, I would have retaken. I know I wouldn't be happy in law school if my heart were somewhere else and I felt cheated by where I was attending, and it sounds like you've got big ambitions so I think "settling" would be a bad idea.
Ah, I see. Well, I'm sending out my letter to LSAC today (they'll get it tomorrow due to the time zone difference.) I am scanning in two letters from doctors and I included the contact information for the doctor who diagnosed me with the problem initially. Hopefully that will work. Gahhhhh.
