You should have applied to more T50 schools.

Unless you want to retake the LSAT go to the school where you want to work and won't have to compete with better schools for a job.

Your cycle is super weird. Look at my profile (click the LSN link on my profile page), I've had completely different results than you and my opinion is that we should be considered similarly, since I have a little higher GPA, but a little lower LSAT than you. However, I am white/Cuban (semi-URM) which could have helped me out. If you're URM you should be having an easier time.

EDIT: You should keep this in one thread as I read both your "Is this normal" and this thread......
Also, you need to apply to "in between schools" like everyone else has stated in both threads.

First, that is, by far, the most random list of schools I have ever seen someone apply to. Seriously, Yale and Cleveland State on the same list. OP, just glancing, it looks like you applied to very highly ranked schools and very low ranked schools but very few in between. The problem is, you have in between numbers (which means it would have been best for you to apply to "in between" schools i.e. 25-85). Did you apply late? I don't see how else you would have been denied at Case. Honestly you should have gotten money there. Same with a lot of the other schools. Don't go to law school this year, it would be a huge waste. You don't even have to retake if you don't want to. If you apply in September next year, you'll be in at all the schools from T50-100 that are on your list and some T30 and 40. You'll also get money to some T2's and more money to the T3's and T4's that have already given you money.
