At that point I could go to a great school for cheaper and ease the pain of leaving a good job. A 173 might get me significant scholly money at NU or UM, even with a 3.4, no? Maybe I'm overestimating my abilities, but I did go from a 151 to a 161 to a 166. So, I'm aware that this test can be mastered. Right?
A 3.4 isn't really that bad. It's no great shakes or anything, but I don't think it's going to kill you at either NU or Michigan (as a resident, you definitely have a shot ED with a 169+). Just double check the year rules on re-taking since I think there are restrictions and I hope you didn't max out (and if you did, just wait until the old scores lapse). There is no reason to leave a good job for a law degree at an "okay" school like Illinois, Indiana, ND, Minnesota, etc.
