newgirl, you need to study and retake, regardless. If you study hard for 3 months, and don't improve (you will), then study again. If on the 3rd test you still haven't improved, then decide whether or not you should do aample (you shouldn't). Don't go into aample because you got 1 or 2 low lsat scores. Everyone retakes, nbd. I know what it's like, not wanting to sit out a year. Last year, my 155 got me into a TTTT with some money. I wanted to go so bad that year that I even applied to Kent part-time. Why the fuck would I want to go to Chicago-Kent pt?! In hindsight, I was very deluded with the whole admissions process, and law school in general. But you know what, I sat down and studied, retook twice, and now I'm going to Illinois with a good scholarship. Seriously, we all know studying sucks, but we ALL did it. Don't be a pussy, nut up and hit the books. Go to lsat prep forum on this site, there are MANY good study plans. Please, please, study and retake. Seriously, you could go to Northwestern or Wustl, and many other places with a good lsat and a dog-shit GPA. Unfortunately, it doesn't work the other way. I know it sucks, and it might not be fair, but it's the world we live in, adapt or fail.
