by the way, i'm black.  that should be pattycakes new sn.  and the last line of his/her personal statement. 

big ten. 

oh i get it.  a legacy should get in with sub-par scores, but a URM should not?  makes perfect sense.

i don't think the OP necessarily needs to look for a new career path, but retaking the LSAT after some serious studying would be a good idea.  and consider what kind of law you want to practice, why you want to go into law, and if you can afford to do so.  not every attorney, regardless of what law school they went to, can expect to make big money.  so if that's your aim, reconsider.

i did a lot of practice questions.  then i graded them and figured out what i did wrong, writing notes regarding that.  i also took timed practice sessions, grouped timed sections together (to build endurance when i didn't have time for full PT's), and lots of full length tests.  the most important thing is to figure out what you did wrong when you get questions wrong.  i got most of my materials from kaplan.  yes, when i ran out of LG's, i erased them and did them over.

i studied only a short period of time on the weekdays.  on the weekends, i studied about 6 hours a day.  i also took a bunch of vacation time closer to the test to study (about 60 hours and studied all day those days).  i agree with whoever said you need to prevent burn out.  it's not quality studying if you are too exhausted to absorb the material.

"who is going to raise your children?" huuuuuuuuuh?  ppl raise children while they are working and can do the same during law school.

as an answer to the OP, it really depends on your LSAT score.  i don't think your age or situation is going to really impact your admission to schools.

my advice?  enjoy your senior year of undergrad, and if possible have some fun. 

two months is not that much time to make a pretty big leap in score, imo.  there's nothing wrong with taking time off to work, if you are still in undergrad.

ditto the posters who recommended a logic course.  i wish i had taken one!
