Choosing the Right Law School / 153 LSAT 3.7 GPA - What do I do now?
« on: October 22, 2015, 06:54:00 PM »
After getting back my unofficial LSAT score today I'm extremely disappointed to see I got a 153. After 4 months of prep I was testing in the high 150s and low 160s, but I had no idea how to do one of the logic games and that threw me off for half of the section following. That said, what do I do now? Should I retake and get closer to the 160 mark that I was bouncing around for months on end? Or do I just say screw it and apply? Where should I be looking? Obviously T30 are out of the question, but I was originally hoping to practice one day back in my home state of Colorado (Univ of Colorado or Univ of Denver for school). I have a 3.7 cumulative GPA and a 3.83 from my degree granting institution, and based off those numbers, I don't think I'll have a particularly tough time getting into DU, but it's a coin-toss to get into CU. I want to one day practice either criminal law or constitutional law. In my undergraduate studies, I have focused on classes about civil liberties and philosophy of law, so I believe I can write a solid personal statement about my passion for the topic, but I'm not sure what exactly the next step is.

Should I retake with a little over 6 weeks to prep? Or should I just apply and let the chips fall where they may? If I do apply now, other than CU and DU, where should I be looking to submit an application? I suppose I should also note that I do not have URM status. Thanks in advanced for the help
