this is probably a dumb question- what's a URM?

my kaplan teacher was admitted to harvard law with a 2.8 gpa from UW- Madison, and a 176 LSAT..So i think it's possible..

NO!! If you want it bad enough you will find away...What i would do is talk to a dean of a law you are interested and he was he/she says... DO NOT give up with out a fight..i am in a similar situation (first time- 146, 2nd time 143!!) and i am working on getting into a t4 school..

Also, have you looked into t4 schools also?

Law School Admissions / Re: SOUND ADVICE NEEDED!!!

Wow, i am surprised that getting into a t3/t4 sounds so awful.. Going to a lower tiered school does not mean you won't be a successful lawyer! On the same token graduating from a t14 school doesn't seal your future in gold, either...

I know alot of successful attorneys who went to t3/t4 schools. I work in a law firm now, and the partners are from a t4 schools, and their associates (older associates, i might add) are from a t14 schools...One of my Kaplan teachers went to Harvard law- and he quit being a lawyer to become an elementary school teacher.

I understand not wanting to go to the "Acme School of Law", but there are great schools out there for you with your numbers..It's just sad to see your post saying how "dreadful" it would be to go to a lower tiered school....

I would absolutely retake..You will be much more confident the 2x time around. And i agree with the poster burghblast-- a good improvement and addendum will explain to schools what happened...

and heed supergirluw's advice too..:)

I say try it and see what happens..What have you got to lose? The worst that LSAC could say is "no". Even though LSAC has established rules, you never know, a dean may be able to pull strings....
