Law School Admissions / ***HELP!!! MELTDOWN!***

Okay guys, my first post. Im writing to seek opinions and not sympathy. Ive been reading the forums a while now and I can tell this would be a really nice place for me to gain the truth so here goes.

Im horrible at standardized testing. TRUST ME, some people are good at it, some can learn to be good at it, and some are so bad there's really no hope and I fall in the latter. I had a 1050 on my SAT but I somehow managed a 3.92 cumulative gpa, Deans List Honors each semester, study abroad experience in which I had a 4.0 over there, nominated to give the commencement speech for graduation, top student in the department of my major for graduation so I was the banner bearer, etc.

HOWEVER, my LSAT score is lacking. SEVERELY. My initial diag was a 148 and Im not getting much higher than that right now.

ASSUMING, I get a 150 this October how good are my chances getting in here:

I dont have any real work experience in the legal field- just tutored in college (employed by my university) AND was employed as a tutor in Madrid (where I studied abroad). Other than that just little side jobs here and there of no significance to my application.

My PS I'll work on to be pretty solid.

Im really looking for some advice here!
