Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 3.9/154

I would suggest retaking the LSAT exam.  If you have a 3.9 GPA, you clearly have the capacity to score higher on the exam and get into a better school.  I have been teaching the LSAT review course for years and would be happy to help you with some helpful tips.  Please feel free to contact me.

I would call the Financial Aid Office at the school as soon as possible and explain the situation and see if would be possible.  It never hurts to try!

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 1L Work Load @ T14 vs. 25-75

The 1L year is hard wherever you go, no matter what the school's ranking. Your grades are imortant wherever you are, especially in this economy.  In fact, if you are at a lower ranked school, you might have to work harder to be more competitive in the job market.

I wouldn't retake the LSAT.  You would have to get a 180 or at least a 178 to make it really worth your while to retake the exam.  Plus, if you got a lower score, you could actually hurt your overall chances. I would suggest concentrating on putting together a really effective application package and getting great recommendations.
