Undergrad GPA isn't great, but I did graduate from Lipsomb University and received their highest honor, the SALT Scholar award, so maybe that will help. I looked into Nashville School of Law, and it isn't going to work for me. I can be flexible geographically once out of law school. I'll just have to be.
I also realize that a very small percentage of people score in the 170's, but if I want to be an attorney with my limited circumstances, what other choice do I have?
You're in a dilemma then. If you can't be flexible now geographically, there is a good chance you'll never be a lawyer. It's unfortunate but that is the reality you are facing being limited to Nashville. It is not like you will go to Belmont or a similar TTTT and have any job offers outside the middle TN area. It won't happen. So, it's irrelevant that you'll be flexible later on because that is not going to be an opportunity for you.
No one cares about SALT. They care about your LSAT and GPA and that's basically it. Don't take this personally and I don't mean to come off as harsh, but I am just trying to give you the most honest advice I can.
Why can you do Belmont but not NSOL? Not telling you to do Nashville School of Law either, just curious. You shouldn't go to either, but I would honestly say NSOL is a better choice than Belmont as it stands because it has more alums.
ETA--It does sound like you are retaking and that is really the best thing you could do. Good luck.
