Or maybe it won't work out and then you'll be 200K in the hole.
I think that if networking is the most important factor for getting a legal job, then there should not be such differences in employment and salary outcomes from different schools. Or maybe the top schools are also selecting the top networkers? School matters for the job, and the LSAT matters for the school, therefore the LSAT matters for the job.
Retake and don't gamble with your life by going to a law school with mediocre employment prospects.
