Hi, any idea where to apply? I'm really disappointed at my LSAT score...

You can check lawschoolnumbers.com and the LSAC site for schools, but honestly, study and retake the LSAT.  The sort of schools you can get into with a 160 versus the ones possible with a mid-160s or 170 score are worth at least a year's wait.

Thanks a lot! I will consider retaking. But does reapplication affect my chances?

Definitely retake, your GPA is all good, and boosting our LSAT score to the mid-160s to mid-170s will make a HUGE difference.
And math and physics majors traditionally do best on the LSAT.
Ambition is a poor excuse for not having sense enough to be lazy.

What did your studying look like for the LSAT you took?

Did you put a lot of time into it?

160 is a good score and with your high UGPA and the fact that you have a lot to offer a school in the diversity category, there aren't many schools that you wouldn't have a good shot at.

What are your goals for law school? Where do you want to go?  What do you want to do with the law degree?
