W&L/ W&M or retake?

Postby sl5uw13 » Thu Jan 31, 2013 4:58 pm

So, I want to work in Richmond VA after school at one of the bigger firms there. I got a $$$ to W&L and have living expenses covered and $$ to W&M. I got a two 168s on the lsat but was pting around 172. should I go for June, turn down w&l, get that 17X score and try for U.Va? I'm waitlisted right now or just go to W&L essentially for free and hope for a job in RVA?

How bad is your gpa? Do you have a job right now? Did you try ED UVA already? Are you in state?

If you can pull at 171+ you'll probably score $$ @ UVA. The bigger firms at Richmond are not easy to score from here, but certainly WAY easier than it would be from w&m or w&l
