Sorry... :( You really should try to retake the LSAT. Did you take any prep courses? I started out with a 152 and bumped up to the 160s.. I don't think Asian URMs get quite the boost that AAs do either..

Asians are not URMs.

Do you think if you spent some time and studied for the June LSAT you could get your score 160+?

Being asian doesn't matter, having a low econ status doesn't matter, and being a 1st gen (american or college student) doesn't really matter. Seriously, raising your LSAT by 2 pts will help you more than any personal attributes would (unless you were black/puerto rican/mexican/am-indian).

I would argue that those 3 things will ONLY help you in compiling a strong essay, and depending on the school, having a strong essay will help you 0%

Also, having a double major from a high-ranked univ doesn't matter. Was your high-ranked univ Harvard, Yale, or Princeton? Then don't expect to receive a boost from that. It sucks because you have to start thinking of yourself as a set of numbers in applications (despite what LSs officially say). At this point, you're 153/3.23, which is inadequate for just about most of your schools
