I feel like by screwing up the October test I've screwed myself if I get anything less than a 170 (which most likely won't happen). I'm scared all the classes will be close to full and by January everyone will be extra picky.
I think your only focus right now should be on scoring your optimal best on the December LSAT. Worrying yourself with concerns after-the-fact diverts attention from an exam that can make or break you.
As for your latter sentence, it depends. It depends on where you want to go. It depends on # of applicants applying. It depends on your holistic application. It depends on your LSAT score in December and what the school is looking for.
The cycle for URMs can be so unpredictable, so nothing is truly ever definitive. Just focus all your energy (not to be confused with worry) on the LSAT and doing your best.
