Can you be a little more specific as to your situation? What are your numbers?

These are people with similar numbers to you from last year's cycle - there's not much data out there, but I hope this helps.

None that are worth attending, but if you can boost your LSAT a few points, you can probably get decent money at a good school, or good money at a decent school.

Where do you want to practice?

With that GPA, you need to retake to have any chance at Duke
You'll probably get into Wake Forrest and UNC, but at, or close to, sticker
You'll probably get a mediocre scholarship to Campbell
You'll probably get a big scholarship at Charlotte, Elon and North Carolina Central

I don't know the NC market well, but my guess is you don't want to go to Charlotte, Elon or NC Central even with a free ride.

Retake, bro. Seriously. Seriously. A few more points puts you in rare air.
