Broke my dominant hand...

Postby Ilovemydogxo » Thu Sep 15, 2016 7:22 pm

So it's a little over a week out from the September LSAT, and I've broken my right hand, which is my dominant hand that I use to write, throw a football, pick my nose, jack off, etc. I've been prepping for the September LSAT all summer and just a couple weeks ago started to consistently PT above 170. Are there any testing accommodations available for a situation like this? Or do I just have to take the L and postpone until December? If so that'd really be a bummer because I've exhausted almost all fresh prep materials and I'm worried that I wouldn't be at my peak were I to have to wait until December.

Learn to write with your left hand this week. Do an old PT a couple days before. Make the decision then.

Use your left hand for bubbling, it shouldn't be that hard. Do the logic games sections in your mind, no diagramming. Scribble on the writing section until you draw a house and a stick figure. Boom, solved.

Seriously though, try some practice with your left hand and if you can't do it then make a decision from there

First, Sorry to hear that. That fucking blows!

I haven't dealt too much with LSAC, but I would call up and see if they have accommodations for this. I'd imagine that with some documentation that your hand is actually broken (el oh el) they would have to classify you as disabled for their testing services... You'd prob have to tell someone what to write and diagram, but maybe the timing will be unlimited if thats the case...

Best of Luck!

Call lsac and ask. It's too late to request accommodations for September. But they may make an exception for you.

Definitely get accommodations, and if you can't, then I would more than seriously consider postponing. At the end of the day, it's more time to study, so maybe it's a blessing in disguise?

If no accommodations, then postpone 100%.

I am so sorry about your hand.

I seriously think that you shouldn't waste all the good work with a bad score because of your broken hand. You should wait!

Consider getting your hand broken as a sign that you need more time to work on your score and get in the high 170s maybe you will get a full scholarship if you take it in on December

Wow! I am sorry about your hand. I would suggest that you postpone if you are unable to get testing accommodations. It's not worth risking getting a bad score.... and this may make for a great PS. lol.
