...a 152 puts me in good, realistic standing considering my list of schools. I could study harder, retake and improve my score for the next cycle and shoot for TT schools, but there's no telling that the extra 2-3 points I could accrue (the average improvement for the 150-160 range) would make a huge difference.
All that being said, I think the only thing I can really do is wait and see the decisions for this cycle and retake the exam regardless. Based on that I can decide whether or not to wait until the 2011 cycle.
Do not go to those schools. With the law market the way it is now, you will pay out the nose and probably not get a good job, even if you were at the top of your class. Try to at least get into the best law school in the state you want to practice in. Otherwise, you may be unable to find a job.
Study your ass off. I bet the avg. improvement is only 2-3 points because people in that range are lazy or don't really want to go to law school. The LSAT can be learned. Nut up and do it.
