A splitter is someone with a very low undergrad GPA and a very high LSAT. A reverse splitter is someone who should retake the LSAT.

You, my friend, are effectively a reverse splitter.

Go retake the LSAT and live a long and happy life.

You realize there are lots of tests in law school, right?

So, instead of buckling down and getting through one more take of the LSAT (which would just be one more test in a long line of tests to come), so that you can get into your dream school and have a better shot at your dream job and your dream life, you're going to give up on the test, waste the potential of your 3.9 GPA, go to a school you didn't really want to, and pray instead of actually doing anything?

The gods help those who help themselves. If you really want to be a lawyer, and you really have a dream school that your 168 won't get you in to, retake.

My dream schools are stanford and columbia...I could have got into them if I wanted to spend some time and money getting all the info to get my tribal card....family wouldn't help on it. got the birth certificates ect. but....it is what it is. I know in at least one of my LOR it talks about my Ethinic background. that fact would get me into both schools as one TLS'er told me that is pure fucking gold....

So, you're not willing to spend the time and money to get a tribal card that would absolutely help you get into your dream schools, and you're not willing to spend the time to retake the LSAT. So basically, you're throwing away the chance at getting into both of your dream schools, probably with some scholarship money, because...you're lazy? Seriously, I don't understand why you would forgo the chance to get in anywhere you wanted, reduce your debt load, and have a better chance at whatever career you want, because you aren't willing to spend a little time on the prep. Six months of study and paperwork could improve the rest of your life, and certainly the next 10-15 years, by a huge amount. The only reason not to do that is a) you're incredibly impatient and short-sighted or b) you're lazy. Either way you should stop that.

Unless you've already taken it three times within 2 years. HOLLA.
