how much time did you spend studying before you got the 147?

I took the Princeton Review which lasted about 8 weeks and improved my score from 135 to 147.  I only took 1 diagnostic per week (that was a big mistake).

Here's my depressing story and I have no idea on what to do:

My top choice school rejected me twice over the past three years.  It is a 4th tier school.  I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees there with very solid gpa's, however, I have a horrible LSAT score of 147.  Last year I was accepted to another school equal in ranking and chose not to attend because I want to stay where I currently attend.  The school gave me some advice on ways to strengthen my application,  however, mentioned that I will most likely not gain acceptance because of my LSAT score.  I have taken the LSAT a total of three times.  I bombed it twice and then scored 147.  Currently, my previous scores are considered stale for admissions purposes leaving me with only the 147.  My target school mentioned that I could attend the other school for a year and then transfer.  My opinion is that this is a ludicrous statement because why on earth would I attend one 4th tier school, work my ass off, and make a lateral transfer across the 4th tier.  I could always retake the LSAT.  I know if I put in the time and effort I can score much higher.  In reality, however, this will put me out of law school another year which I do not want to do at this point.  Also, I do not want to attend a school intending to transfer and then end up being stuck at a school I do not want to attend in the first place.

What on earth should I do.  Over the past three years my sole purpose in life has been strengthening my creditentials in order to gain admission to this school to no avail.  I'm just disgusted at this point.  Should I just attend somewhere else and hope to transfer or retake the LSAT.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I was in history class when another professor came in told the class to turn on the television.  I remember it like it was yesterday.

I am writing my PS about a very close family member who became terminally ill and needed constant care.  Consequently, he spent the last four months of his life in my home while my father and I tended to his every need.  My focus will be how I became a better person because of this experience.  I am trying to briefly state the facts.  The sentence below just does not seem to flow smoothly.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thank you very much. 

I begin by saying that "On such date, so and so was diagnosed terminally ill."

"No longer be able to care for himself the first floor of my home was transformed into a hospital wing."

I will be glad to look it over.
