My cumalative GPA is a 2.8 but that is calculated with 2 retaken classes. I am now taken a Kaplan course so that I could get a high LSAT score. On the first practice test I recieved a 137, the second practice test I scored a 147. At this pace I am hoping to get a at least a 155 by the time I take the actual test.

2.8 and a 155 LSAT
I also have alot of work experience and I am a first generation Cuban American
I work in a Law office, I am a Licensed Real Estate Agent and Iam only 22 years old.
I am a Political Science Major and a Pre-law Minor
I go to Montclair State Univ. in NJ which is a OK school.
Possible recommendation letter from a top criminal defense Attorney
The reason my GPA is so low is because I was immature and didn't really know what I wanted to do my first 2 years in college

Considering all of this, would I be able to get into a tier 1

Not unless you are an URM.

163+ for a shot at tier one.

163 with a complete blank of apps.  165 or 166 to get in not off of a WL and not sending out 40 apps.
