Look to your nearest testing center for a retake bc the economy is bad and you ca't get into anywhere worth going to

My tuition will be paid and I have a job lined up at a private firm when I get out. I just want to know where to look.

Start w the USNWR rankings/admissions data. Use your brain.

I have, and Ive looked at LSN, HourUMD, LSP, and TLS Stats. I havent found anyone with stats like mine who is applying in the same region as me. I have found the admission indexes and looked at 25%-75% numbers, but I have found it difficult determining exactly where I fit. Im above the 75% LSAT for my target schools, but below the 25% GPA...I have no idea where that puts me. I called a school I was considering, and all they told me was that I was "competitive." Anyone looking at schools in the southeast with stats like mine?

You need to provide more info on why you're certain a job is guaranteed before people can give you good advice. Do you mean a close relative (i.e. parent) runs a small firm and will hire you? Then sure, go to law school and try to minimize debt.

Or do you mean that you are a paralegal at a larger firm and someone you work for has implied they'll give you a job? If the latter, watch out. If your school/grades don't match up to their usual hires they might not be so forgiving when the chips are down.
