Were you admitted to any law schools with a 3.5 GPA & an LSAT score of 152 ? If so, to which law schools were you admitted ?

Retaking the LSAT with serious preparation for the test is your best option. If you feel burnt out, then consider waiting a few months before enrolling in a prep course for the LSAT.

Villanova has had a rough few months so anything is possible. Hofstra & St. John's are possible. Temple is unlikely, in my opinion.

Check lawschoolnumbers.com

P.S. You have an excellent chance of gaining admission to Hofstra. St. John's is possible, just less certain.

After sending all my apps out by early and mid Feb, I kind of regretted doing so and felt I should have considered re-taking...My question is, did I do myself harm by applying and possibly being rejected by schools that I hope in the future to reapply and gain admission?

The answer is it doesn't matter whether it harmed you because you can't undo it. The harm you can avoid next time is applying waaaaay too late in the cycle. Get your stuff sent off by the end of October.

Also for the time being are there any books that I can read not specifically geared to the LSAT but that deal with LSAT related content (logic/informal logic, logical reasoning) that will help with me when if I begin studying again?

I don't like logic books for LSAT study because they almost without exception go beyond any logical thinking necessary for the LSAT and, in turn, students start taking things into consideration unnecessarily (which slows you down and often leads to tricking yourself out of a right answer).

A bit unrelated, but if you're looking for extra practice, Manhattan LSAT has an LSAT themed game online. It's fun to pass the time and it keeps track of your scores.
