With that said, you stand a roughly 50% chance of getting in with those numbers (<153 LSAT). This could vary if you have URM status. However, it doesn't sound like you have put a lot of though into this if you plan to use your law degree to be a JAG and then transition to politics. I can't imagine the salary would be nearly enough to cover the student loan payments. If you plan to get into politics, there are plenty of masters degree programs that are better for that than a law degree (Probably cheaper as well). Don't spend 100k+ on tuition with the goal in mind to get a $45k/year job. If anything, strive to do well on the LSAT and get scholly $$$. This way your $45k/yr JAG salary will go further.
Do NOT take the LSAT in June if you haven't put in the effort to prep. There is no difference taking the LSAT in June or October for next cycle, especially for Miami. Spend June, July, August, September prepping. A 150 is a lock for Cooley, FWIW. If you plan to be a JAG, I'm sure a Cooley degree would suffice.
Thanks for the response and as far as I am concerned, I do have URM status as both of my parents immigrated over here from Latin American countries. Furthermore, I would be the first member of my family to attend any type of graduate school. Also, the JAG Corps will assist in loan re-payment. If I remember correctly, one can be eligible for $65,000 after a few years of service and if after 10 years there is any student loan debt remaining, the federal government forgives it. I know Miami takes the highest LSAT score you have so if I am not satisfied with my score in June, I will re-take in October but I'd rather not. Thanks a lot, I appreciate the response.
