Where should I go next fall? / IU-Indy or KU - This sucks. Help.

Both crap options - I know. Trust me. As of right now, it's between the two of them, as deposit deadlines are soon, and I haven't heard from some other schools. Waiting on Iowa, IIT-Kent, and W & L. Waitlisted at American, W & M, and UMich.
I will not want to live in either of these places after law school, tuition is pretty much the same at each.
And advice would be greatly appreciated - except telling to me take a year off =0).

Edit: I know they are good schools, but just not anywhere where I could easily see myself.

Hey all,
This is my first post, but I've been reading for a long time. I was hoping to get some advice.
I took the LSAT again this past Saturday, and am hoping I did better than I did the first time - an annoying 157, over ten points less than I had been scoring during practice tests. I think I can blame this score on being sick - I had a cold when  I took the LSAT, which eventually kept me out of class for a week. There was also some construction going on during the first section of the test, games, which was both distracting and made me a bit of a mess for the rest of the test.

Obviously, I freaked out when I got my score, pretty much seeing all my dreams fall apart. I took it again, and think (hope ) I did better. My question now is - how do I apply to schools that are out of my range from the first test, but might be in my range for the second? I feel like every day I don't apply is a  day against me, but I'm not sure how to address the possibility of a score change. I was thinking about adding an addendum to my applications, basically detailing what I said above, but if my score doesn't change, then I look like an idiot. Any ideas? Otherwise, I think I'm a good candidate - I'm at one of the Seven Sisters with a 3.4 gpa from here, and a 3.85 gpa from some courses at NU.... I just don't know what to do with that sodding LSAT score.

Thanks!
