Yes.

With that GPA you could clean up in the t14 if your LSAT improves 6-8 points. You're really losing out on major opportunities by not retaking here, so unless you are 100% sure you cant do better I'd retake.

Yeah, dont waste that GPA on a 160. Improve your LSAT and enjoy T1s with schollys.

Is it in-state sticker? If so, yes it's bad but not as bad as USD. Still pretty bad. But two more LSAT points and you can get a full ride at ASU.

From Northern California. I dont want to take another year off, but I guess in the long run it will be worth it. I should start studying for the October LSAT, for some reason reading comp kills me.

Are you in-state or out-of-state?

If you're in-state, the most you'll likely be offered is 55k over 3 years.
Out-of-state are the ones who get those larger schollys.

EDIT: you should retake, though. ASU is not worth sticker.
