For Christ's sake, retake the LSAT. if you can get a 165 you are in everywhere except maybe berkeley. without it--out at Berkeley, UCLA, GW, UWash, Hastings. A maybe everywhere else besides Vermont and Lewis & Clark.
WAIT AND RETAKE. Why would you spend over a hundred thousand dollars on law school when you can spend nothing if you go to the same, low-ranked law school and they give you $$$ for your better stats, or spend that hundred thousand dollars somewhere great like Berkeley?
If you can get a 4.0 in college (at somewhere better than a community college I assume), you can get a 165 on the LSAT. Study for 1 hour a day for three months. Your score will go up. I promise.
