Advice: Depending on which market you wanna work in?

Better advice: I suggest applying to TTT schools that would offer you some money cause there is going to be minimal difference between the schools you listed and a school like CUNY, Duquene, West Virginia (although now technically T2, and those types of schools, but you will get money.

Best advice: Retake the LSAT, seriously. Going to one of the schools you listed at sticker price is insanity, you will regret it terribly once you see the types of job prospects you can find from those schools in those tiny markets. Retake. Retake. Retake.

Have you visited UMKC? It was terrible.

Worst. Campus. Ever.

I couldn't spend three years there.

Thats my point, and the employment is horrendous there right now. I wouldnt go to either of these schools if my life depended on it. Hence my advice to the OP.

Seriously, if retaking is absolutely out of the question, look for TTT and TTTT schools that can give you money. What are your numbers, here are some schools I would personally consider that are T3 and T4 but still have a shot to land you a decent job:

Michigan State
West Virginia (although now T2 I guess)
Capital (Solid Financial aid there, seriously)
CUNY
Duquene
Mississippi
FIU
North Carolina Central

There are others but these are just some that may give you enough fin aid to justify going to such a school. North Carolina Central was voted best value school in the nation by a number of magazines last year.
