I have been accepted by Michigan State but no money. That school is really expensive, I may have to sit out this year and retake LSAT and try again!! ;-(
I sat out of law school for a year retook the LSAT (2 more times actually) and it was the best thing I could have done.
There are a handfull of school that will automatically take your highest LSAT score and many that will take your highest score depending on the amount of improvement.
As for me I will probably be turning down acceptances from two schools that rejected me last year and end up at a higher ranking school than any of the schools I applied to last year.
Applying for the second time around you also have a far better understanding of the admissions process and I've been able to make sure Law School is what I want to do.
180. 180. 180. This has been my experience exactly. I may well end up turning down a couple of schools that rejected me last year and I'm already in at one school which is ranked higher than any school that accepted me last year. It took a leap of patience more than anything, but it was probably one of the more mature things I've done in the last few years.
If this process is not going the way you want/need it to, I would seriously consider slowing down and not rushing headfirst into a situation that isn't what you want. It's too important a chapter in your life to not get what you want out of it.
A year is not that long and the sense of control I've gained over the process has been huge as far as peace of mind goes.
