Honestly, what is the difference between someone making $80,000 and $150,000. Either of those salaries is decent to live upon, and even excessive in many instances.
About the retaking, again it comes down to your own individual situation and where you want to go. If you tell me that someone who scored a 170 will do much better than a person in the 140's in law school, that just is not accurate. Scores while reflective of the ability to recognize certain testing attributes, do not speak to a persons ability to learn law material in a complete manner.
I am certain that someone who scores in the lower brackets, with hard work could suceed at HYS.

A big difference...and I'd be fine with 80000, but come on, there's a huge difference, even if you can be comfortable with both. Excessive can be subjective to a degree...you can say the same about 80000. No going to TTT school doesnt mean you will be shut out, but with this economy (ugh so sick of this term, but still) it will be more difficult. This forum really helped pushed me to go up 11 pts on the LSAT. We can argue about how it relates to potential performance on how well people do in law school, but its not about that-the reality is that unless you have a very interesting background/softs, the LSAT will matter a lot, whether or not it is a good test. No one here (unless they are being a jerk) is trying to say that someone with a low LSAT score is an idiot/has no potential to do well in law school, otherwise they wouldn't say to retake.
