This advice really isn't constructive, and I don't know the acceptance rates of the provisional ABA schools, but I'm pretty sure you won't be able to get in anywhere with a 140. Sorry. Others may have more constructive advice. However, go to lawschoolnumbers.com; you might find some schools there.

See you at Michigan!
I am a prime example that you could have a low G.P.A. and test score but finish at the top of you class.

I can't believe I am getting involved in this thread, but I do have one thing to point out (assuming you are not a duplicate poster of the original flame, which is very possible). The quoted advice is both skewed and irrelevant. First off, you can't have a low GPA and finish at the top of your class. You could work to bring up your GPA... but then, you no longer have a low GPA. The original poster gives every indication that they are done with school. Therefore, they can not finish at the top of their class.
Anyone who encourages this poster (again, on the EXTREMELY small chance that they aren't a flame) should realize that people like this lower the value of all law degrees. Some people aren't made for law school- the influx of people going to law school who shouldn't be there is leading to an oversaturation of lawyers... this is bad for all of us, no matter what school we go to.
That's cool how you referenced a case.
I'm so far from the end of my tether right now that I reckon I could knit myself some socks with the slack.
