I don't know exactly. She seems to think she'd make a good lawyer, and thinks they all become millionaires, despite my advice to the contrary. Sometimes I think she's just trying to copy me or something. Her undergrad major was communications, and this whole law school obsession just crept up within the past year or so.
That's what I was afraid of. If she had actual specific goals or aspirations in the legal field, she might be a little bit easier to reason with. You could point out how neither of those schools would serve fulfilling whatever aims she has particularly well, and that if she's serious about achieving them, she has to retake the LSAT.
To be honest, I think she might get dinged at both schools with those numbers. If by some chance she gets in and decides to embark on a bad idea, I don't think you can do anything beyond giving a few words of wisdom (emphasizing Cooley's infamy) but ultimately letting her make her own bad decision.
