Well the answer is obvious...

You are clearly screwed, LSAC doesn't take mess from anybody. They time your phone calls and keep record of how many times you have called and if they don't like what they see, maybe that 3.XX turns into a 2.XX. Sorry man, try grad. school.

LSAC is clearly annoyed enough with you that they'll shave a point off your GPA and refuse to process your LSAT. Better luck next time.

Based on this post, I hope they round your GPA down

Absolutely. That's exactly the kind of mess they refuse to take.

Because you are obviously worry ridiculously about things that are not possible. You might as well worry about not getting to start law school because of the alien invasion that starts in october.

Dude they're not going to round down your GPA. What you should really be worried about is their close connections with the admissions deans at all the schools, who they will definitely tell about your egregious lack of respect and arrogance.

It should be fine as long as you adhered to the strict LSAC rules of decorum by addressing the representative as "Sir" or "Ma'am" throughout the call.


....You did do that, right?
