2. Generally when people say things like I don't mean to be insensitive but, it's because they know that they're about to be insensitive. She put in quite a bit of effort. She took multiple practice tests, dedicated a few hours each day to doing practices, and took a class before both tests.
1. Message boards are not for me either - this is honestly the only one I post on because of the wealth of resources here. I want to go to law school, so I signed up here and use the message boards. Thanks to some of the advice I got here, even if it was what I didn't want to hear, I improved my LSAT score and got into some schools that I wouldn't have gotten into otherwise.
2. Yes, I'm being insensitive because I'm also being honest. If you put a lot of hours into studying for the LSAT and can only pull a 144, you should seriously reconsider law school. The LSAT is arguably the most standardized test in existence. Regardless of whether or not you think it is a true indicator of one's potential in law school, you have to consider that if you get a 144, you are somewhere in the 20th-23rd percentile. That means in a room full of people who took the LSAT, your score is worse than roughly 80% of the people in that room. That's who you will be competing with in law school.
