I don't see anything wrong with taking the LSAT again, however, if you do decide to take it again I think your approach has to be much different than the first two times. You really need to consider a private tutor or someone who can diagnose area where you need the most help in improving your score. This might be an expensive route but this is your only choice if you truly have your heart set on attending law schoool. You're also going to have to consider when you do improve your score how are you going to explain away the lower scores. I think that you can come up with an acceptable explanation but you need to start working on that now. I would go to grad school now just to get the GPA boost. Basically, if you're heart is set on law school take the test again with proper outside instruction and see what happens. If you don't improve maybe you have to consider it just isnt' right for you right now.
Alright chico this is strictly my opinion. I personally am also taking the lsat for a third time in February. I dont know why you dont just take it in February too and study like crazy these last two weeks. If you do it will be better for you because a lot of law schools still take February regardless of what anyone says simply because they want a minority student and if you have good soft factors they might be inclined to wait especially if you tell them to by writing a cover letter. There is also the option of CLEO which u can also use to get the schools to wait for the lsat score and not just rejecting you outright. The point is for them to stall the decision as much as possible so that when the score does come they will see the improvement. Brooklyn College actually sent me a letter entitled "Some Candid Advice" stating to take it again because most people on average improve two to three points and they would accept me and wait for my lsat score if I decided to do this. Or simply just applying for CLEO which all you have to have is above a 2.7 gpa and a 140 lsat. They have an excellent recruiting program and you can prove you are "worthy" of a law degree by doing well in the six week program and after the program the directors will try as hard as possible to find you a school and they are 90% successful. My friend had a 145 got rejected into all of the law schools then went CLEO did great and got into St. Johns, crazy right. If your taking it in June.....then I suggest you just wait an extra year and apply early for 2009 because it truly is not worth it financially or practically unless u are wait listed for the summer to some schools you actually want to go to. Regardless hope I helped somewhat and I wish you the best of luck.
