Sorry to hear that you got dinged
I don't know what to expect, hey, anything is possible. Btw, thanks for sticking up for me in that other thread. I know I have a bunk LSAT, but let's not get demonstrative over it.
Some people who say retake are just being mean. They are possible insecure in their own lives, really who knows. Good luck with everything.
But seriously with that said-- retake. Also if you can't raise your score do not go to law school even if you do get in somewhere. You will not do well enough at any top 150 law school for it to be anything other than a huge waste of money. If you do manage to find a some for profit only law school where you can compete, unless you are very wealthy already, don't go because essentially no one from those schools makes it in today's legal market.
You could take this two ways. First, you could do what you probably will anyway and use this to fuel you so you can try to "do better and prove them wrong." Or, you could do the smart and mature thing and align your career goals with your skill set.
Sorry, I read a bit in the other thread and thought they were a bit harsh on you. I wanted to try a different approach. I know you are probably thinking, "but wait, this guy thinks the LSAT is more important than it really is." That could be true. Maybe law schools and everyone on this site including myself overvalue the LSAT. Or, maybe you did poorly on the LSAT and are now justifying your decision to attend law school in light of the new set of circumstances you find yourself in. I'm sure you will decide for yourself which is more likely.
Good luck, I mean it.
