Study your ass off for the LSAT. With that sort of GPA, you shouldn't be settling. A school like Fordham isn't out of your reach.

bigs: It's not about learning the law. It's about getting a job. People at higher prestige schools have a much better shot @ that.

Wait a year. Apply to real schools. Get a full ride to WUSTL or Illinois. Don't go to John Marshall.

It's just extremely arrogant to go around saying, "A score that low is a flame" and "It speaks to the people I choose to associate with."

I teach an LSAT class: LOTS of people score in the 140s, and a few do score in the 130s. The percentiles aren't just made up.

So I'm guessing you don't have a job.

Pay attention, 0Ls-who-want-to-go-to-T3s.

If you never have met someone who scored in the 130s, that's a problem on your end. Plenty of people score in the 130s and it's absolutely silly to think otherwise.

Boston College
Boston University

At best, you're going to the 6th best law school IN BOSTON.

That's not taking into account competition from just about every law school in the northeast, just about all of whom will rank ahead of you because they went to a better school.

Depends on what you mean by "good school."

Do you mean Harvard? Yes, you've killed your chances at Harvard.

You still have a shot at the lower end of the T14 and plenty of T1s (many of whom, with a very good LSAT score, will throw money at you).

Retake the LSAT. Take a class or something.
