Retake LSAT or reconsider law school. Both are terrible.

I would definitely go with Hofstra. Pace is a T4 and has pretty crappy job prospects, and a measly 15 law firms come for OCI. If you do really well at Hofstra a big law job is a possibility, a survey based on 23% of the graduating students found the 25-75th private sector salaries to be $80,000-$160,000

Pace if you want to do environmental or land use law. Hofstra otherwise.

Both are absolute toilets and will land you on the unemployment line.

I'm being honest with you. What do you want to hear? "Oh, you'll get a job with a degree from Pace or Hofstra!"

Be honest with yourself. What do you want with your degree? Wait stop....

You won't get that with either of those degrees. If those are the two schools you are considering, then you don't belong in law school.

It's harsh, but he's kind of right. Pace does get people good jobs in land use law, but any other focus and you'll be unemployed or making <40k/year (which you can do straight from undergrad) even if you're top of the class. Hofstra can get good jobs, but only if you're in the top 5-10%; otherwise, the job prospects are basically the same as graduating from Pace.
