Temporary brain cloud on test day? It happens. Brains sometimes misfire when under extreme pressure. It even occasionally happens to the best of us. It just sucks when it happens on the day that matters.
Sorry to hear that a few of you ended up with scores far below your PT range.
Hand scoring is not meant to be a remedy to correct for bubbling mistakes made by the test taker. Its purpose is to check for and correct any mistakes made by the bubble sheet scanners, meaning errors on the LSAC end of things, NOT to correct errors from the student end. Basically, it is to make sure the machine properly read/registered which bubble you filled in per question # row. When they hand score a test they DO NOT look at your test booklet, that is policy. All the handscore person looks at is the bubble sheet and the report of which bubble the scanner registered for each question #, row by row.
I've never heard any verifiable case of LSAC correcting for and adjusting a reported score due to bubble offsetting. The discussion board rumor mill has some anecdotal claims over the years that a bubble offset mistake was corrected by a hand score, but those claims have all turned out to be bogus. I've talked to LSAC about this several times over the years.
Once a score has been reported, it is final and you are stuck with it unless their is sufficient proof that LSAC F'd up in scoring the test somehow.
