Re: 158 / 3.8 ED at CU-Boulder?

Apply when you have a higher LSAT. CU-Boulder experienced a sharp rise in law school applications this year (up about 19%) & your LSAT scores are low for a typical year. Minnesota might be an alternative, however. Why Colorado ?

P.S. According to lawschoolnumbers.com, an applicant with a 158/4.0 was admitted during the most recent cycle. If Colorado is your dream, then you should apply.

P.P.S. Today Louisville, Colorado was named Money magazine's best place to live in America. Superior was also in the top 20. Both are very close to Boulder.

Yes, it makes sense to want to live & work in one of the most beautiful, most educated, smartest, healthiest & most liberal places in the country.

Much depends upon your frame of mind & upon where you are in life. If you don't want to dedicate substantial time & effort to retake the LSAT & you're ready for law school now, then apply as soon as possible. However, if you want to increase your odds & have the time & energy to commit to preparing for the LSAT, then retake & apply when your new LSAT score can be considered.

Judging from the postings at lawschoolnumbers.com, you will need at least a 164 or 165 in order to be considered for scholarship awards.

P.S. Also consider the University of Denver which is only about 35 minutes from Boulder. You should be accepted by Univ. of Denver & may receive a partial scholarship award. Colorado is a much smaller law school with only 180 first year students, whereas Denver is much larger with over 300 first year law students. Denver also has a part-time program.

The University of Wisconsin in Madison is also worth considering.

I retook a 159 for a 164 and now I have MUCH better options (and i'm still going to retake again) . My 159, 3.7 got me shut out of a lot of places that I thought I might have made it into but the competition is pretty rough with those numbers. Retake and you won't regret it AND you'll more than likely pull some scholly $$$

You can still apply early and then retake. That should give you leverage for scholarship negotiations. I would also apply to Denver for that reason.

But Definitely retake.
