GW reject
ND W/L in
Cornell reject
UT reject
BU W/L
UCLA reject

A 168, or a 169 is a different ballpark, retake if you can improve. Also, a well crafted personal statement might push you over the edge at some schools, so try to put your best foot forward.

Previous poster is a little harsh I think, but not far off. Look at lawschoolnumbers. Try Illinois, Minnesota and WUSTL. Should get some $$ from one or more of those

IUB can be thrown into the mix too if you don't mind the midwest. But what are your career goals and where do you want to practice?

i would like to have flexibility in choosing between government and mid to large law firm employment. What doors would a 168 or 169 retake open?

A 168 or 169 would put you in a good position at every school from Cornell on down. Cornell, UCLA, USC, Vandy, UT, BU and BC would be your targets. With a 169 you would have an outside chance at Michigan. I'm assuming that you have average to weak softs.

Yea I have limited work experience (a temporary position at State Street for three months ending this week) and nothing to speak of.
