I am not sure but I will be looking for the answer to your question.  I scored a 146 with a strong 4.0 during my last two years of school.  I am also AA disabled vet.  Hope that helps in the process.

I have started the following thread for people like you and me.

This may give you a ray of hope.  Do not forget that are URM.  This makes a difference,as well as female.

Thanks guys sooo much for all your help and kind words, especially usafveteran

Hmmm...I would advise a retake...your LSAT is putting you in a tough spot (very few schools will take that 144 and admit you...but mind you I am not an adcom., so let them be the ones that say "We won't take you"...just letting you know what I think from the outside looking in).

What type of schools are you targeting btw?
i would prefer schools in the DC,ATL,Connecticut and NY are, ABA approve too

I went a recalculated the numbers and my UGPA is a 3.21.  I stumbled out of the gates when I was younger.  I would like to comment on anthoner thread in which you wrote in.  I do understand that it is what it is as far as the cut off point with LSAT and such.  However, there must be a voice here to encourage those who did not score as well.  We all know that this test is not a true picture of how a person performs in law school.
