I'm in an LSAT class now and I'm going to retake the test in December, I'm also in a Formal Logic class this fall at UCF. I've already moved up to a 166, there's no reason I can't get in the 170's, I got 730-760-730 when I took the SAT 2 years ago, the percentiles on that all equate to 170's on the LSAT, I'll just need to practice at it.
I didn't meant to give the impression I think JAG is easy to get into however I also doubt that they would use mere age to disqualify, unlike some firms would, as various posters have pointed out, it means that if I do well in law school I have a decent shot at getting a job even if I'm not 21.

I don't think I'm immature, but who does? I can't really give an objective stance on this, anyone that knows me well enough to gauge my maturity is unlikely to be honest about it so I'll just have to take my chances, I suppose. That being said, I don't think I'm as socially awkward as some might assume someone graduating college at 19 would be. My school also had an IB program and I can tell you that I'm not one of those kids.

If you aren't employable, get into a funded PhD program, and drop out with a MA when you are 21.
I don't think there will be a multitude of job offerings opened to me when I graduate, I don't think many people are looking for 19-year-olds with BA's in Political Science. I have some money saved up from the business I created but I don't like the idea of sitting around waiting for a couple of years.
I appreciate all the replies and advice everyone has given me, I'll be back to update this once I get my second, and hopefully last, LSAT score this December.
