I did not. The woman in particular I spoke was named Kathy. I didn't think to get a last name. As I said however, she did look at my information specifically - which does bring up a few questions I've been rolling around in my head. For one, when she saw that I was in-state she said that was "good". Now, my question to the collective minds on the board is this: is this simply an automatic response to a student - "oh, it's good that you won't have to pay out-of-state"? Or is this an admission that being in-state will count to my favor? Because if it is the latter, that would strike me as somewhat counter-intuitive.
As long as I am dissecting this conversation, I should probably mention the fact that she asked me the most coded question I have ever heard.
"How many practice tests have you taken?" Now, intelectually I know this has to be a question asked. My LSAT score is low - but for good reasons. I explained those reasons to her - physical disability and lack of proper accomodations. Her immeadiate response was did I address that in my personal statement or an additional addendum. My answer is of course yes.
However, I would be lying if I said that this exchange didn't worry me just a little bit. Despite a great GPA, a solid resume, and what (I'm sure) are great reccomendations - there's part of me that thinks the application will be passed because of an objectively "bad" score.
I'm rambling, I know. I also know I have a tendency to overthink things. I hope this is one of those times.
