This is probably one of the most inappropriate places to ask for law school admissions advice, but seeing I go to an already underfunded public university and my wonderful "Governator" has decided to axe money going to our student counseling services, I don't really have many other places to turn. I'm hoping maybe there's a law student or recent law school grad (or maybe even an admissions officer =D) who can offer a kid some much-needed advice. I just got my LSAT scores and, although they weren't bad, they were a bit disappointing. My 163 pretty much knocks my dream schools of Columbia and NYU out of the picture, and puts me on really unsteady ground for UCLA and USC, which had been my target schools. I had scored around 170 on all my diags, so I don't know what happened on the actual test. Probably had a massive brain-fart or something. I really just have two major questions: 1. Should I retake my LSAT? 2. Does a guy with a 163 LSAT and ~3.6 GPA have any chance of getting into UCLA law? Needless to say, I'm a bit depressed, and a little bit of hope (or reality) would help me out a lot. Pity, of course, is always appreciated. Thanks!
