Your LSAT score is not awful. I believe Fatduck is trying to say that with your GPA, you should be exhausting all attempts at a higher LSAT, so that your GPA's benefits are fully maximized.

not awful, but you have nothing to lose by retaking in october and quite a lot to gain (namely, harvard yale and/or stanford)

What type of score would I need to be competitive at HYS? Also, would you mind telling me your thoughts on my chances at UC Berkeley (and the rest, if you don't mind :) )

above their medians i guess, 172? 173? check lawschoolnumbers.com

Also, I'd like if some of you more experienced folks would be able to give me a qualitative idea of my chances at the above listed schools (including UT Austin). Thanks!


Short answer - Yes.
