Why not retake the lsat? I'm pretty sure you'd do better the second around with 2 solid weeks of studying. GL to you though.

Hi, I am a student that is currently in law school (check my profile, I was part of this process last year) Just a couple words of advice. And hear me out (read past #1) 1. Retake the LSAT in February if you still can. There is only 1 school on your list that you might be able to go to with your numbers (Nova) 2. Law school is much different from college. I graduated with a degree in Finance (99.7 overall average) from a pretty good school. Law school is unbelievably difficult. Every class has a single grade, the final, which is given in essay format. You have to write 20+ pages of GREAT material to even consider getting a B in the course. You are graded against your classmates as the school will employ a curved system with a defied mean grade. I work 80+ hours per week to stay a little above the middle of the class. (See #3, supra) 3. Check US news for Job data from schools you are considering. If you attend a poor school, you have little chance of getting a job. If you go to a school that will not allow you to get a job, even if you make it through law school you could be unemployed. Most firms will not even hire outside the top 60 or so, because there is so much competition. Lastly, to combine all this advice, you need to retake the LSAT so you have the chance to attend a better school. This way you have a better chance at getting a job and actually finding work as an attorney. Without that "precedent" you will toil away for 3 years and spend a bunch of money on an investment that will not pay dividends. This sounds negative, but its truly not intended to be. I am only looking to help a future colleague make a rational, intelligent decision. Cheers!

I think that you should apply to some fall back schools.

I'm writing to correct the obvious mistakes in Panicunited's comment. I, too, went through this process last year and am currently in law school. Only because I'm a nontraditional student, I only applied to schools that were close to home despite the fact that I did quite well on the LSAT. The notion that you have to write a 20 page essay to get a B is grossly false. You only have a few hours to complete your exam. And the length of your essay isn't what matters, its the content. The claim that firms won't hire grads from sub-60 schools is a joke. Pretty much any law school you go to will probably give you a decent shot at getting a job in their local community. And it has been my experience that most small and mid-size law firms don't even know which schools rank high and which ones rank low. If you want to practice at a big law firm in NYC, school rank might matter. Otherwise? All that matters is GPA, your ability to write and research, the experiences you have and the network you build for yourself. Even bottom-ranking law students at bottom-ranking schools can land a job if they are good enough at networking. Elitist snobs who try to "help" people make "intelligent, rational decisions" based on faulty claims and total lies can kick rocks. Just my two cents.

I think your school choices are a bit lofty with that LSAT. I'm pretty sure I saw a T14 or 2 in there somewhere. Retake the LSAT!! PS, I don't think being black is gonna help you this time around.
