Thanks guys. I have a lot to think about these next few days. This spot is the absolute worst for me. I told myself anything under 155 would be a definite retake and anything above a 162 would be acceptable. I should have known I would fall into that gray area. It's really tough for me because I know I would do what I had to do to succeed in law school. Failure would not be an option. Average would not be an option for me in law school but I understand that the admission committees need something to show them that. Standardize tests have never been my a bright spot for me. I know my soft factors like community service and work experience are extremely strong but the obstacle would be for them to even get past the numbers. Getting two degrees from UVA would be a powerful statement for my family. Most of them have worked for the school in mid (and low) level positions but I will be the first to actually attend and get a degree from here. This school has always been a huge force in my life because it has always a source of income for my parents. However, it always appeared to be this shinning light on a hill that none of us have ever been able to get to. Perhaps a BA is where my journey here ends which will be an accomplishment in itself for a first generation student. What do you all think about schools like William and Mary, George Washington, and Fordham with my numbers?
Greetings all...just got my June score back and I can't complain. Now I have a question about how I should pursue my application strategy/ Assuming 3.5+ and 170 should I pursue a risk averse strategy or still go balls out, b/c I had a couple of strange ideas for my PS? Oh yeah...and thanks for all the help, directly or indirectly.-B
