4.03/160 Oct LSAT....kind of lost as to what to do

Postby nillumin » Sat Oct 30, 2010 12:11 am

I did poorly on the June LSAT, only scoring 158, but I didn't really prepare much for it. So I prepared for October by studying after work for a while, and after the test, I thought for sure that I had hit 165, as it turns out, that's not the case at all, at least I hit 160 I guess.

So right now, I'm in a tough spot...160 LSAT..4.03 I'm an accounting/finance major at a decent city school.

I was looking at the following schools: UNC, Pepperdine, Boston College, Boston University, Fordham, Notre Dame, Villanova in hopes that if I got a 165 I could get some money at those schools, now I'm not sure if I'd even get in.

Money is important to me as I have had to pay my own way through school and currently have little debt, I'd like to stay with that trend; at the same time, I want to go to a school that is going to give me good job prospects, and from this site I have learned that you only have that at a few select schools...

Is there any chance I could get into Villanova with money at this point?
Should I take the LSAT again in December? And if so, should I apply after I get that score? I'm pretty disappointed with myself at this point and not sure what to do....

I'm sorry, what does "on down"/"shotgunning" mean? I'm still trying to learn all the terms....

thanks
