Well get to the pt where you will retake and then retake. Otherwise law school is not in your future, let alone NGOs.
In other words you will need to go to a top law school to have a chance at your career goals. And you will need to retake the lsat to have a chance at a top school

In lsat terms since its time to start studying again:

NGO---> Top school -----> retake

retake------> NGO

Wait did you say you were truly diverse? You mean like truly "truly"? :shock:

Then HYS by all means.


Seriously dude, retake or find a new career path. I'm sure they need all sorts of people in africa.

Best luck - try to go for rank 40 schools & apply for fee waivers.

This is a troll. No person who could get a 3.7 would think an American JD will help you work for an African NGO

There are plenty of schools looking for high GPA URM's, try your hand there.

retake the LSAT, get a 160, go T14. Honestly, that is your only option.

Hmm. Considering many "authentic" African slaves were forced to adopt their slave master's last names, creating a lineage of African Americans with Anglo last names, I'm confused as to what your definition of a "fake" African American is.

You underestimate the ignorance of TLS users and people in general.

Still confused, but it is what it has to be.
