154 LSAT + 3.65 GPA = ???

154 LSAT + 3.65 GPA = ???
« on: October 28, 2007, 11:55:06 PM »
Hoping someone out there has got a bit of advice for me.  I just took the Sept LSAT and got my score back - 154.  My cumulative GPA is a 3.65 (at a top 20 school) with that being the result of a significant upward trend since my freshman year.  I have some legal experience, typical summer intern at a coprorate law firm, and then a full time semester-long internship at the district attorney's office.

I'm wondering if anyone could give me some advice on what kind of schools I should be considering given the above information and whether or not I should consider retaking the test.  I did moderate preparation for the test -- scored anywhere from a 150 to 164 on practice tests.

What is the "best" school I should realistically have a chance of getting in to?

also please don't reply to use the gpa/lsat calc.  thats already been done.

if you've used the calculator, why are you asking this question? any advice you get will just be speculation based off of the calculators.

Definitely re-take. With the new policy (taking the highest score) it's really the best thing to do. If you opt not to, I have 2 friends with similar numbers. They're at the University of Baltimore and Cal Western (in San Diego). Both really like it, and from what I hear they're doing well.
