I have a 3.74 gpa and have only taken the lsat once with a 159. I'm coming straight out of a medium size public undergrad and have average softs but strong LORs. I also wrote a strong why ND essay and am Catholic. I'm thinking around 15% chance accept?
I know this doesn't answer your question - but with your gpa I feel the BEST advice at this point is withdraw and retake - 3 to 4 practice tests a week up until the LSAT (minimum 30) and you'll break 165 - with your gpa you could be looking at potential t14 and money t25
Yes. TITCR here on TLS. And I agree with it. But to address your post, your estimation of your chances is probably about accurate.
To add to the sit out a cycle/retake bit. Also, I would advise using the time to 1) make sure you want to do law and that you are actually informed of what it entails. and 2) develop either one very concrete career goal/path or map a couple you would be satisfied with. This will help to make sure you aren't just rolling the dice with that 15% when applying. Helps to solidify purpose and make better decisions. NOTE: I'm not saying you don't have these now, but many K-JDs don't, and I think that aspect is as valuable as the retake.
