Do you have an addendum for the low LSAT? You must be good at standardized tests if you got into Harvard to begin with. I don't see how someone at Harvard with a 3.7 can't absolutely destroy this test with the right preparation. Did you study? Sorry if this comes off as rude, I just feel like someone who has already experienced one of the best educations this country has to offer is selling themselves short going to a Tier 2 school.

Yeah, studied and did practice test and all but freaked out the day of. That and my history of bad/unrepresentative standardized test scores account for the low LSAT. I included some things relating to this topic on my diversity statement, but we'll see what happens... thanks for your reply.

There is still time to retake in Feb, but yes, I agree that waiting to take in June is probabably best. Also, sign up for a course ... they are a ton of money, but it provides you with motiviation and incentive to put in the time. Depending on your URM status, a 160+, 3.70 GPA, and having graduated from Harvard may allow you to break the T14.

Barring that, you could always go to Howard. I hear minority Howard placed minority grads really well.
