First off saying "LSAT: 175 (should I retake? honestly hardly studied and didn't take it seriously enough...)" was quite inappropriate and it definitely annoyed a lot of readers (that is the objective of trolling - to get a reaction). Giving a number is OK, saying "hardly studied" - not so much. I do believe your score and I do believe that you are a good test taker. I am in the same boat. At one point I actually wanted to teach standardized tests, but it felt very uncomfortable. But a lot of people, very intelligent, do struggle with this test.
Also, your discussion regarding not having work experience and later presenting internships at top banks and " significant internship work experience abroad" strikes as very odd indeed.
You are probably much better off reaching out to current HYS students/alumni or people that have positions that you want after graduation.
Ah I see, thank you for explaining. My perspective has definitely been skewed by friends of mine who also took the LSAT on a whim and pulled off perfect scores (again, back to the "being lucky test-takers" schtick). What I wanted to emphasize with "significant internship work experience abroad" is to differentiate that type of experience from, say, the typical study abroad programs offered through undergrad, not in any way to suggest that I have anything that would count as real work experience. Apologies for the confusion and annoyance I've caused anyone, as that was definitely not my intention.
Thank you, everyone, for your detailed feedback, help, and advice; I really do appreciate it!
