Got a 3.39 GPA. and a 159 on the June LSAT. I attended University of Illinois at Chicago for undergrad and my dream is to go University of Illinois Urbana Champaign for Law School. Is it worth applying or should i retake the LSAT?

URM or no?

Based off the info in your first post, I'd say to retake.

I'm Arab (100% Syrian) but I'm pretty sure that doesn't count as an URM. I will however mention my ethnicity and experiences living in the clashing cultures of the US and the Middle East, incase that helps  ;D

It's unlikely, but not impossible. Retake if you can do any better.

I'd say you have a higher expected rate of return investing that money in Mega-Millions tickets.

Thats a bit extreme.There are people who have been accepted with worse states, however I understand that is the exception and not the rule.

I will definitely retake in September, thanks for the help

Yes, but these folks:
  • are URMs
  • have the same surname as campus buildings
  • love their Uncle Blago

This is correct.
