you will get into all but fordham, which will put you on their endless waitlist. You should get some money from the first two, but Cardozo is something of a crapshoot. I had nearly your same numbers and decided on William and Mary with a $8000 a yr scholly. Good luck

I'd reconsider my options if I were you. NYC has a oversaturated legal market if you havent heard. I would attend law school in region where I could actually get a job. But of the three- St. Johns. They are all of similar caliber with the exception of Fordham.

Life decisions:

Retaking LSAT and getting into Fordham >>>>> Cardozo / Brooklyn w/ $ >> St. John's

Although I suppose Brooklyn w/ big $$ wouldn't be too bad

to make a retake worthwhile, i'd have to score 170+, and I have zero confidence I can do that on test day. i studied LG for 4 months and still got bushwacked on test day.

How did you study? Did you take a class, or prepare on your own?

class and on my own. i studied really hard. i got as high as a 170 and 172 on PTs, but on test day i ran into LGs that i couldn't do. no reason to think that won't happen again.
