LSAT Gold Violation

I took a Sabbath observer test today and was given a "First Verbal/Written Notice" (Gold Violation Notice).
About one or two seconds after finishing the writing section, I stupidly decided to quickly draw a line through the last sentence I had written.
While it seems harmless and happened during a section that doesn't count for much, I'm worried there's a good chance LSAC cancels my score and lists the violation for law schools to see.
Does anybody have any experience or familiarity with the LSAT violation process? Any help would be hugely appreciated.

This happened to someone I know, they didn't cancel his score but I am pretty sure it is on the report that goes to admission committees.

I don't think your score will be canceled necessarily, but there will be a report sent to schools. You'll have to write an addendum for the C&F questions on law school apps.

If you end up retaking, remember that the writing sample is ungraded and probably not even looked at in 99% of applicants' cases. Do it, and don't deviate from the topic, but don't stress over it.
