a 4.0 from a crappy school is not the same as a 4.0 from a good school.  not only do law schools know this, but potential employers during and after law school know this too.

i think it's supposed to be academic, not necessarily from undergrad.  a lot of these kiddos say that because they are still in undergrad.

why would you let a bunch of strangers on the internet read and critique your personal statement?  a). for all you know these people are a bunch of idiots who are going to give very poor advice b). for all you know these people are just reading a bunch of statements in order to assess the "competition" and write theirs accordingly.

just sayin.

if you can get a 3.87 at a decent school, you can do better than 153 on the lsat.  sorry.  a decent lsat score = intelligence + study skills, the same things contribute to a good gpa.

if any of these attorneys have first-hand experience working with you and can speak to your personal qualities in a valuable way, ask one of them.  just one.  and find a prof.  since you have only been out of school one year, that is very important.

graduate, get a job, and figure out what you really want to do before you spend a bunch of time and money trying to get into a graduate program you aren't sure about.  hth.

ditto PP.

take a prep course or buy a prep book.  unless you went to a really sh!tty undergrad school, with a GPA like that you should be able to score better on the LSAT.
