retake

You'll probably get a lot of WL because of your great GPA. If you sign up for the February LSAT and rock it you stand a good shot of getting off some.

I have been consistently getting 164 to 168 on about 25 PT's and will take the Dec lsat. but i want to be safe and assume I'll get 164

I think you have a shot at USC/WUSTL/GW

But applying later will hurt. So most likely WL at all those.

Northwestern would have been a good idea (in Sept). or UVA ED (a month ago).

Spend the next few days studying for the LSAT. Speculate on this after Dec 11.

If you're trying to be safe assume lower than what you PT rather than your lowest average PT (especially if you've never taken before)

one more thing i would like to specialize in real estate, any one of the schools you guys would recommend more than others even in top 25

it is probably easier to let us know where you'd like to practice and then we can suggest which regional school would be considered best for real estate

FWIW, a lot of people who practice in that range come out with a 159. Good luck though.

Haha, exactly like me in October. 164-168 range, got a 164. I bombed LG, though; if I got my average on it, I'd have a 167-168 and not need to retake in a week.

As long as you score somewhere in the 160s you can ED to UVA with a great shot of getting in.
