Where should I go next fall? / Re: what schools should I apply at?

Yeah but not that much. Although they did take someone from this board with a 160 this year, that is the definite extreme exception, not at all the rule.

You will definitely have an extremely tough time getting accepted at:

Vandy
ND
Wash U
 
The rest will be tough as well.
Re-take the LSAT in the fall, try to raise your average up. Otherwise you are in for some disappointment.

Annabel:

If you are a URM, as your signature indicates, you should apply to more than just a few top schools with your 163. Add 4-8 points to that depending on the school and what specific minority you are.

I would say that you should focus on the 15-25 grouping, where you will likely have excellent chances. The lower-ranked T-14 may be a possibility as well. Check out Lawschoolnumbers.com for more info. Unfortunately, I doubt your work experience will help all that much at the calibre of schools you are looking at. It may help a bit, and it will likely give you a great personal statement, but won't be a deciding factor.

It might help somewhat for litigation. I know someone in DC who did a significant stint in the JAG corps, then became an AUSA for a while. Now he's a mediumlaw partner that does a fair amount of white collar corporate defense litigation and trial work.

The favorites to be the "Next 'elite' school": UT/UCLA
Outside shot: Vandy

WUSTL will struggle to hold the T-25 in the future.

If you are going to be a freshman, forget about law school for 4 years and enjoy it.

You have to report all schools attended, even for just a semester or a class, with grades. To do otherwise is unethical, against the rules, against LCSAC policy, etc etc etc.

I'd drop everything and go to UVA in a seconds notice, up to the first day of classes.
