Hi Everyone,

I took the June 2013 LSAT and got a 163. I have a 3.5 GPA. I am hoping to get admitted to U of Washington this coming admission cycle and apply for their public interest scholarship program. I am debating whether I should retake the LSAT in October. (I had scored a 167-168 pretty consistently on practice tests, so I think I can improve my score) or do you think I can be a strong candidate at U of W with my current stats? I also have two years work experience. Other schools I want to apply to: Boston University, Boston College, Fordham, American, George Washington, Vanderbilt, Emory, UNC, U of Colorado, Lewis and Clark, UC Hastings

Thank you!!

You've got schools from a lot of areas of the US listed there. The school you attend plays an extremely important role in where you work, so you need to ask yourself, "In which city or even state do I ideally want to work?" If you want to work in Washington state, UDub is definitely the way to go. If you want to build your career in Boston, BU, BC, and Fordham are options, though reaches, at your current numbers. If you want to work in Colorado, with a markedly diminished opportunity of working in Denver (since you didn't go to DU) that's also a possibility with your current numbers. If you want to be able to pick your market after you graduate, you definitely need to retake and do well enough to get into a school that would allow you to do that, but very few schools do.
