Plus, I suppose having been unemployed for nearly a year at the time I took the test didn't help. I'm also a father (15 y/o daughter) and live in SF, so financial worries and family responsibilities trumped LSAT focus. I went blank, and I actually guessed a lot of answers. Sucks for me.
But I will retake, fret not.
OP, please, PLEASE
devote as much time as humanly possible between now and October to studying! as has been (somewhat) alluded to in this thread, the LSAT is not a test one should take blind. go buy the Power Score Bibles (or whatever LSAT prep books you prefer) and as many PTs as you can afford, and get to work. given your GPA and URM status, getting up to even the upper 150's would dramatically
change your school prospects. break 160, and we're talking T14.
