GULC transfer hopeful...Should I talk about my 159 LSAT?

Guys, should I discuss my low LSAT score?
I'm thinking about saying something along these lines -

Dear GULC, the LSAT is supposed to predict how well one is going to do in law school. The LSAT is wrong bro, cuz at my current school I am on the low end of admitted LSAT scores but am at the top of my class and got 2 CALI's."

Obviously I'd try and pretty it up a little bit, but I'm definitely going to use the word "bro" and "cuz."

Should I just not say anything? I know LSAT isnt really that important in the transfer process, but I feel like it's only not important if you broke 160.

Other info: ranked #2 at 51-60, 3.95 GPA, Legal Research and Writing was my A-.

Why would you talk about it? It's irrelevant.

A resounding no.

Why GULC though? It is likely a higher school will take you (*likely).

Do not mention it. People have been accepted to Columbia as transfers with much lower scores.

Absolutely not. Your LSAT is totally irrelevant.

And that says nothing to the Adcomms. Nothing that they already don't know, and is obvious from your app. Don't insult their intelligence, or waste their time by giving them something meaningless to read.
