It depends on a few things.1) Your next score. If you get a 140 - then you are in deep. If you get a 175, you are doing amazing.2) The school. Some schools will average all scores together. This is particularly stinky if you get a really high score. The good news is, however, that most schools don't do this - rather, they will either take the higher score and ignore the others or look at all scores together holistically. 3) Presentation. The last thing that will affect how a school interprets your score is how you present it to them. The majority of schools will already be asking for an addendum if you have multiple scores. This essay will be key. Be honest... but present yourself in the strongest and most positive light.Overall, a higher second score will put you in a better spot than where you currently are...Now... whether you should take the test again is another issue. At a 144, you have quite a bit of room to improve upon, which is good. However, if there really wasn't much you could have done better, than it may be a waste of your time to study and retake. If you were sick, didn't study properly, etc., then it may be worth it.Good luck!
practice scores on real lsats, or fakes?
"full-time lsat prep course"? what dat?
I hope the schools consider the reputation of the school (Ohio State) in reviewing her 3.1 GPA. It's not Harvard, but it is certainly not EasyAsPie U. either. She attended OSU as a recruited athlete (rowing). The combination of Division I athletics and sorority fun definitely affected her grades the first year, but she displayed an upward trend thereafter.
I hope the 157 LSAT offsets the lower GPA.
