No one can offer you good advice because

1) You didn't say where you want to practice, and

2) You numbers probably can't get you into any school that will justify the debt you will incur. Graduating from a TTT gives you a good shot of not finding legal employment at all. You have one more LSAT retake and I suggest you use it. Sorry bro.

So Im guessing you are already applying to Baylor and Houston. For, litigation and residency respectively. I think you will really need to focus on regions, if you are not retaking. Find stats on job placement and look into locations you wouldn't mind practicing in. Also I believe SMU has a PT program that is easy to get into, then switch to full.

I'd like to practice in Texas. I'm not necessarily opposed to changing that if I got into a decent program elsewhere.

Again, I understand the TTT job prospects and debt.


I know this is top law schools, if I can find TTT law schools then I will post this there.

To answer the Texas question, yes I'm applying to basically every TX school (no UT, no TX Southern). At higher ranked/harder admission schools I'm doing PT, or the application is free/cheap anyways.

I understand a 155 is horrible for many people on here. I want to apply this cycle and early. I won't retake as things stand right now.

Do not go to law school, if you can't retake. Don't do it. Unless you are really well conected and have an office in the corner waiting for you upon graduation.

I appreciate everyone's opinions and awareness of the job market and cost of law school.

Given that I'd like to apply now, could someone suggest where my numbers could reach? How about a good trial ad program that is lower in cost (in the scope of TTT)?

edit- I have a few possible/probable job opportunities through family/friends.

I dont think there is a lot of knowledge about those kind of schools around here. You might have to do your own research.

Honestly, most TTT's I have seen have great trial ad and Moot Court programs.

Not great job prospects though :|
