I think you're missing the point here (also listening to this podcast currently).
You could very well slow down and be a hair as well. I think what the host is getting at is this: why are we testing students with a particular metric that doesn't correspond to the type of work they will be doing?
You're better at reading under timed pressure? Great. How is that relevant to the work of the law clerk who reads their cases slowly, and methodically, trying to grasp them fully?
Great podcast btw.
My application is now under review as well - I am a discretionary applicant and was rejected last year. UVic is a long shot for me but I'm hoping with an approved LSAT score in January I will have a chance.. so not sure why its under review when I emailed them saying im retaking in January
