Is Dayton really that bad? If they offer to pay half my tuition, let's say, do you think it's worth going there instead of waiting another year?

If I don't get into any of the schools I applied to, then yeah, I'll go ahead and retake the LSAT.  I just think it's a shame, because I don't really believe the LSAT tests anything at all.

i think the best advice is to try and study a little and take the LSAT again and apply next cycle. It's more money, but a few points difference around the 150 mark seems to make a huge difference. If you've already retaken and still can't do better, and you know that law school is the thing for you then use the calculators to try and guage chances.

I think it's a bit late for me to be taking the LSAT a second time unless I'm gonna start law school in Fall 2008, or maybe Spring 2008.

You are correct to question the accuracy of those calculators, since they don't factor in anything but the numbers. However, the opinions of strangers who likely know little to nothing about the admissions processes of the schools you're thinking of applying to probably won't be of much help. More often than not, any response you get is going to be based in large part on the results of those calculators.  ;)

Be that as it may, any help or advice is appreciated.

Tell us more about yourself.

Age? Straight out of UG? Work experience? Community work? Minority? Any interesting stats (college athlete, well known actor, speak a million languages, etc)?  Any great internships? Major (not that this matters all that much, maybe if you're EE)? Anything?

What is it about yourself that, given the chances you found on the calculator, makes you believe you will beat the odds?

Yeah, straight out of UG.  I'll be 22 later this month.  My community work includes interning for a dept. of the city government, and no, I'm no a minority.  I can speak 3 langauges (I listed this on my resume that I included with every app I did).  My major was International Business Administration.  I hope this all helps :)

My states are as follows: LSAT = 149, GPA = 3.43  I've taken a few undergrad classes in law and aced them, and have solid LOR's.
The schools I've applied to thus far are:

Cleveland State University
Richmond
Campbell University
Dayton
University of Tennessee Knoxville
University of Kentucky
University of Louisville
Duquesne
Mercer
Case Western

What are my prospects? I was looking at the lsac calculator but don't really believe it, because in inflated my stats a bit and even then it said I couldn't get into some universities that I'm sure I can get into with my actual stats.
Thanks

 why are you asking us if you already know you can get into them? why are you sure you can get into those places?

but i'll play the game. it really only looks like you have a good shot at Dayton and a somewhat possible shot at Cleveland, Campbell and Duquesne (though not great shots). Everything else is pretty far out of your reach unless you're a minority.

I have no idea where might give you money. On your list, just Dayton, I'd guess.

Those schools I was talking about earlier aren't the schools I listed in my post.

Oh, I also meant to ask what sorts of schools you guys think I could get into that would give me some $$$$ in terms of scholarships.
