Now I can't speak to your international contract goals, but if you're a URM and want biglaw, Howard is actually a very good option. Their employment stats are quite comparable to T20 schools. Retake if you want to, but attending Howard would not be such a terrible idea. If that stip is actually top 15% percent, then you have even more incentive to retake.
Word around the campfire is that if you're a URM and can't break into the T13, Howard is a great option.
Howard Employment Stats (LinkRemoved)
47.1% employment score, 11% biglaw score, 2% fed clerkships, 25.5% underemployment of which 19.1% are unemployed, and 11% unknown (probably unemployed).
William & Mary Employment Stats (LinkRemoved)
54.4% employment score, 7% biglaw score, 7.4% fed clerkships, 26% underemployment of which 20% are unemployed, and 2% unknown (probably unemployed).
Suprisingly, W&M isn't unambiguously better. Gonna want top 10% or so at either to get biglaw. Retake the LSAT
