You could always save yourself hundreds of thousands of dollars and retake. Just a thought.

With a 165+ you're a lock. IU admits below-median LSAT scorers, but often not with a GPA below their 25th. And if you do get in, you're not in their typical scholarship range. It's worth a shot, though, especially if you get a fee waiver.

Rough chance of admission - 25%

I have around the same numbers (3.1/164) and I applied ED at IU-B. Law school predictor gave me a 'consider', and I've seen several with our numbers that got some kind of scholarship. So it's not hopeless.

Hoping to hear back in early Dec, good luck!

As silly as it sounds (and I think the arbitrariness of law school admissions can only be described as silly), that one LSAT point matters a lot to IU. They like their median of 164 and there's a big distinction between 164 and 163 to IU.
