In at FIU. Wouldn't waste $ elsewhere.

Get that LSAT up to at least the 160's, write a good GPA addendum (if applicable), and apply next cycle.

I wrote about it in my PS.
Softs: I come from a communist background, first one to go to college in my family, came to the U.S. alone, speak 5 languages.
Not sure if those help... but I sure hope they do :-D

I also want to do public interest work after graduations after I mentioned that in my PS as well

The only thing I could write regarding my GPA is that I was working full time the entire time I was in college. Would that help?

You need to retake the LSAT and study a lot harder. You won't get into any school where you aren't at least at their LSAT median.

As most others have said:

FIU - In
UM - WL
FSU - Out

Does anyone know how hard it is to get off the Miami waitlist? I'd imagine it is pretty difficult considering how many they put on there. So yeah, retake unless you are happy with FIU.
