This site was helpful in organizing my list of schools to apply. I hope my story can help someone else in a similar situation. As you can see I casted my net long and wide. Despite my low LSAT score, I hoped schools would still find my application competitive due to other attributes. I applied late in the year (March 1 for all applications) which may have significantly affected my chances especially for scholarships.

Just a few updates:
MSU invited me to a summer program but later informed me participation in that program was low so they were not going to have it. They still offered consideration into the law school.

Howard never got back to me concerning admission.

I have decided to postpone law school and pursue a masters in law that will give me expose to patent law.

Once again, I hope my experience will help others in their pursuit of a law degree. My best advice: prepare for the LSAT early, (it will determine if they even look at the application in my opinion) and apply early. Good luck!

What's stopping you from a retake? With that gpa/softs literally the only thing holding you back from getting money at t-14 schools is your LSAT.

I completely agree. The LSAT is my biggest weakness. Unfortunately it has a tremendous impact on my application. Maybe I can discuss the feasibility of obtaining a scholarship with a June retake with college administrators at a few of the schools. Right now I am burned out with the PhD process. The likelihood of taking a year off to recoup is becoming an increasingly probable option.
