Don't force a square into a circle. Law school probably isn't for you.
I'm not quite sure I understand the strong correlation your making between being good at taking standardized tests and becoming an attorney. YES I understand better ranked schools give one a better chance at actually practicing law, and YES I understand that one shouldn't go to said lower ranked law schools due to money issues (no scholarships, high debt, etc) , however, I do not understand how a low LSAT score correlates that law school isn't for me.
Because the schools you'll pull with a 150 carry less than a coin flip's chance of you passing the bar. You still haven't given us your GPA.
Law school grades are based on a single four hour test at the end of the semester.
Then there's the bar exam--a standardized test. There is a strong correlation between LSAT performance to 1L grades to bar exam performance.
So yeah, a low LSAT score makes law school not a good idea. For anyone.
I wish you well in December and hope you exceed your expectations. However, just be aware of the obstacles you'll face. Going to law school despite all these red flags could very well be life-ruining. You are very unlikely to pay off your $200k loans.
