You may want to copy your information onto the board if you want more responses.  But you did apply to a lot of schools so perhaps that's why you referred to your link instead of retyping it here.

Sorry, I don't really know what range of schools is in your reach category; otherwise I'd opine.

hopefully schools will look at my app. I just feel like a 157 will be auto-reject at most of the top schools

you will be fine...make sure your package is tight though

Hey guys

21 years old
sep. 07 lsat: 154
gpa: 3.50
URM, Black male

-I've worked PT for almost my entire undergrad
-I've volunteered at Boys and Girls club helping to teach martial arts
-I've volunteered through my university during the summer with an Urban Journalism workshop, which helps teach journalism skills to HS students.

I'm planning on retaking in Feb or June, I'm not applying until next cycle so I'm going to have plenty of time to study and prepare, I just wanted to see my current chances.
I wanted to know my chances to these schools, although if there are any other suggestions I'm open to them.

Re: 157/ 3.88

157 LSAT
3.88 GPA

score is really frustrating.

I see everyone who increases 10-15 pts by studying, and I took 6 months/ 10-15 practice tests and increased a total of four pts.  ???

Any recommendations on where I should have a good chance? im coming a year early out of undergrad, but worked part time (20-25 hrs.) during school

How much flexiblity can I have because of my high GPA?

For you, I'm thinking top 7 as reaches, target the lower t14, the rest of the top 20 you should be in.  However, I would apply to ANY school that you want to go to.  SERIOUSLY.  You never know what could happen.  Your LSAT is not going to hold you back as much as you think.
