You're pretty much in at both, especially if you're a Florida resident.Claim the AA and you'll probably get a scholarship to boot.

I saw from some of your other posts that you go to FSU. Do you think I should retake the lsat? I know the median is 160 so I am right on the borderline. Some people have told me that a higher score may increase my chances of getting scholarship money, but I'm unsure of how true that is. ( And don't worry I'm just wondering your personal opinion as a student, not basing all of my decisions on what I read from lsd). As for my AA status, it is a personal decision for me that I put on my application what I actually identify myself as. I consider myself biracial and chose not to disclose my race for undergraduate and scholarship applications. I may talk about it in my p.s. because I think it is part of my "diversity," but I think just checking AA on my application and then talking about being biracial will be hypocritical of me.
The state of Florida does not practice AA, so it doesn't matter. Your numbers are fine for any of the law schools in FL. People with lower numbers than yours get into UF and FSU. Good luck!
What are my chances? I am mostly concerned about UF and FSU. I am an undergrad at UF and FSU is my first choice for law. I was pretty disappointed with my LSAT score and am probably going to retake in October, but is that a really a good idea? At first I thought I was ok with taking it again but as time goes by, I am losing interest in a retake.Also, technically I am URM (African American Father, Caucasian mother) but I chose to classify myself as "other" with LSAC because I don't identify myself as just AA. I am guessing that they will not assume I am URM because I put "other." However, I am thinking about talking a little bit about it in my PS because it has affected my life.
