You should be in if you get a 168 on your LSAT. Are you planning on applying for fall 2013?

If you want to go big law, I'd apply to the top 14 schools. They have the best placements with big law firms in New York and along the East coast.
Other great schools in Cali and Texas -
California - Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, UC Davis
Texas - UT Austin, Baylor, SMU

Try the Law School Predictor site (http://www.lawschoolpredictor.com/wp-content/uploads/Law-School-Predictor-Matcher.htm). It's not 100% accurate but it can give you some ideas.
Also, I think you'll get more responses if you can narrow down where you want to live or what you're wanting to do with your JD.
How are you to the point of enrolling in law school without any student loans? You on GI Bill, or just have parents pay for it?
Sorry, no trust fund or rich parents here. It was all scholarships from the state and my school, along with working a full time job at night.
I'm not at all looking down on student loans, I was genuinely asking how the interest works if you stay in school.
You have to forgive me for my ignorance because I haven't gotten into the school loan game yet.
Won't your loans still be accruing interest if you go back to school? So you'll end up owing substantially more (in interest alone) if you continue to put them off, correct? Have you done the math on your monthly payments if you start now vs. one or two years from now?
What year are you in school?
As long as you keep your GPA up and get a good LSAT, you should be fine. It seems like law schools are much more concerned with their GPA/LSAT medians these days (because they contribute to rankings) and not at all concerned with undergraduate institutions.

I took summer school classes from a different university during undergrad. The grades were factored into my LSAC GPA.
The only reason that your study abroad would not count is if there's some complication with the grades being from a different country.

I think that's really a personal decision. Do you want to work in your current location? Do you want to work with your father or his friends? If so, the best location is probably one where you've already got connections.
