From everything I've learned so far, Temple, Nova, Pitt and SH should be fine.

Come on - look, I retook the LSAT and I'm VERY glad I did but OP is looking at schools that they have realistic #s for and these are solid regional schools..whether those schools are worth sticker ITE is worth debating but we do that on every single thread -

OP asked what their chances are for these schools and the answer is pretty good for most of that list

A retake would eliminate OP's need to pay sticker though, which with this tier of schools is never a bad thing. You are correct in that when we limit our response to only the specific thing that the OP asked and ignore other considerations, chances at most of the schools listed are pretty good.

come on, this is TLS, if you arent scoring a 170+, you should automatically be re registering, quitting your job, foregoing any social life, and only putting the books down until you have become one with the lsat master...............

and then, if your gpa isnt stellar, putting off graduation to bump up your gpa as much as possible...

This is generally sound advice. What would you do. Study for an additional 6 months and graduate with 30k debt? Or apply now and graduated with 200k debt.
