Davis, no question.

Well if you want me to just pick one, I say Santa Clara.  I've known a few lawyers who graduated from there, are quite capable, and are doing very well for themselves.  I would also personally rather be in that area of California that UofP's neck of the woods.

Of course, you really shouldn't pick a school on a whim.

Another thing the OP might want to consider is moving to a state with a public law school he thinks he can get into, living there for a year to establish residency, and re-taking the LSAT in the meantime.  That would be the smartest way to go about this, IMO.

With a 153, 3.13, you could have a pretty good shot at getting in at these public schools:

University of Idaho
University of Wyoming
University of South Dakota
Northern Illinois University
University of Akron
University of Arkansas

With an outside shot at:

University of Maine
University of New Mexico

My advice is to do your research, find a state with a public university you are fairly sure you can get into, in a region that you could stomach living in, and go for it.  If you re-take the LSAT and score in the high 150s or better, you could end up having more viable options at your disposal, but at least you would still have the (cheap) public school to fall back on.

I haven't looked through this thread, but I imagine psychology has been mentioned quite a bit, and you can add me to that list.

A lot of people here treat law school like it will be some sort of ticket to the charmed life.  If you go to the Top 14, that might be true--provided that your idea of the charmed life is making six figures, driving a sweet car, having a fantastic trophy wife, and never being able to enjoy any of it because you work 80-90 hours a week in a desperate attempt to claw your way to the top.

Some of us don't aspire to that.  I say if the OP really wants to be a lawyer, even if it doesn't lead to the aforementioned lifestyle for them, then they ought to go for it.  Re-taking the LSAT would still be a good idea because a higher score means more options.  However, despite what most on this board would say, a 153 score does not, in and of itself, doom a person to a lifetime of failure.

It can't hurt to try to squeeze them for more.  The OP could ask that a portion of the offered scholarship be made renewable.

bluewarrior is seriously dumb.  "Don't tread on me."  WTF?  Isn't that what the people of the Middle-East ought to be saying to us?

They are trying to entice you.  When they first looked over your application, they decided that they wanted you as a student, but that you would most likely be willing to pay full tuition to go to their school.  Since that was not the case, they are scrambling a bit.

Its a great school in a fine city. If you like the midwest, and you've got the stats to get in, you should apply there without question.
