First off, congratulations on pursuing your dream. You can go to law school with a range of LSAT scores, especially if you have soft factors that the adcomms like. Military experience? URM? Other challenges or experiences that separate you from the pack?
That said, there may be difficulties with going to lower ranked law schools (i.e. the ones which will accept lower than 150-155). You should familiarize yourself with the whole issue in order to make a decision that is right for you.
Have you thought about an LSAT prep course? The higher scores you mention are within shooting range for lots of schools, the lower scores will be tough. Many people score lower on the actual test than they do in practice (myself included). Some people find a prep course helpful, some do not.
If you haven't checked it out already, lawschoolnumbers.com is really helpful. You can pin down which schools are appropriate matches for your LSAT and GPA.
Good luck! You have a good attitude towards the whole thing, and I am sure that will help you each your goal.
