The school with the best employment numbers of those mentioned is Santa Clara. At Santa Clara, you will not receive a scholarship. This will mean taking out $240k in debt. Even if you live at home, eat off of your parents, and in general have $0 of living expenses, you will still take out $150k in debt.

Approximately 40% of Santa Clara grads secure legal employment after graduation. 60% fail entirely in their quest to become a lawyer. That $200k debt will still have to be paid off. Of those lucky 40%, 75% get jobs that pay around $50k/year. Only 10% of grads secure jobs that could possibly pay off the debt accrued. This is not a recipe for a happy outcome, no matter how badly you want to become a lawyer.

Please retake the LSAT.

To add to this, a good chunk of the employed gradutes are going into IP Law and have science/tech backgrounds. If aren't coming in with a CS/EE degree, your chances of finding viable employment are even lower.

You absolutely must retake. If you don't think this is an option, then don't go to law school. It's that simple.

You need to retake the LSAT

Your chances at these schools dont matter because your stats wont get you any scholarships, and no Cali TT is worth tuition

Think about how much time it would take you to earn $150,000 after law school. Then evaluate if you'd rather spend years - possibly decades - paying that off, or if you'd instead prefer to study hard for a few months and score well on a test.
