So I am in at two schools, but the median salaries are low for both of them.  I am confident that if I take the LSAT again, I can get a higher score and get into better schools.  I am wondering though if it is worth it and whether the median salary at Lews & Clark is really 50k.Does anyone have any thoughts?

the reason L&C starting salary is so low, is due to their large number of students interested in evironmental law.  if you were to try and get a biglaw job out of L&C, I know that most large firms in Portland have a starting salary between 85,000-100,000

Also you have to remember that most LandC grads stay in the NW where the cost of living is relatively low.
