Given my less-than-stellar GPA, a 170+ seems to be the benchmark for the caliber of schools I want to get into. I've also got nothing to lose by re-taking because of the ABA's revised policy, so why not aim higher?

thanks for the note! to be honest, i think you have a fantastic chance at a top 20, given you study for the LSAT and get a respectable score. an upward trend in grades will definitely help your application -- C's and F's to straight A's is impressive and reflects a commitment to improvement. plus, you have a lot of time to prepare for your cycle, something i wish i'd given myself before committing to this process. do well on the LSAT, and i am positive you will do well with your applications. good luck!
