This has to be a flame. 

If it isn't - please reconsider going to law school. 

Why would you tell this person to reconsider?  Even though 141 is a bit low, it is fixable.  I would say retake the test, then reapply.  But I would be careful of the schools that average your scores if you retake the LSAT, unless you make a vast (165+) improvement.  Sometimes they also put a cap on how many times you can reapply.  Don't give up hope, I am still waiting on acceptance/rejection letters and I was rejected from my top two.  The first was a stretch, and the second was my undergrad alma mater.

Thanks for the advice.  I got accepted at Thomas Cooley and received a 25% scholarship.
Flame.  No way a 141 got a scholarship anywhere.

Yes a 141 plus a 3.60 GPA did get a scholarship.  Go to Cooley's Website and check yourself.  ;D

take LSAT again, even if you did get into one of those schools... its not worth it going to those schools without any scholarships.  I dont think that you will qualify for any with your numbers, and why rack up debt to go to a school that isn't really marketable to begin with.  You have a decent GPA, I dunno about your school, just retake LSAT and work for a year!


Exactly. I just checked out that Cooley Law School, which i could've gotten into if i applied but that cost is ridiculous and those are not even Top 100 schools

Can somebody please explain how a school with such low standards (a 25% scholarship with those numbers is low standards) claims itself to rank just below Fordham and just above UC Berkeley? It's on their website.

Go take 2-3 easy classes at an undergrad and get an LSAT tutor.
