Surprising that someone clever (or at least industrious) enough to get those numbers would be so confused by probabilities. I guess you must think (like a lot of high GPA folks) that you did well in undergrad, so you'll just do well in law school too. You'll "work harder than everyone else," or something. Sadly, there's very little correlation, and that strategy rarely works.
That this thread even fostered serious discussion is a stain on the credibility of this site. The guy said he wants biglaw? From GW or WUStl? For money? You don't need to be a rocket scientist to crunch those numbers. UT at that price is no prize either.
OP, you likely have a bright future ahead of you. There's no need for you to play russian roulette.
So, if not these two then what would you suggest? I do not plan on playing the probabilities, which is why I created this post. However, I do not have the wherewithal to set aside another year to wait for a test score that may or may not be higher than my previous. I know that I can study hard, get a tutor, buy books, etc. and have a possibility of increasing my score, but that again is like playing Russian roulette, which is what I would like to avoid.
