I have heard of success stories with this, just call the admissions office of a few schools and one of them is bound to bite. With those numbers, you might get into a few top 100 schools, and will get decent scholarship offers at TTT/TTTT schools. Retaking is your best option.
I think this has changed and OP would need to petition LSAC directly and they are far more strict about letting the fourth test go through. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
OP, even if you need to wait two years to take you will still be far better off than applying with your LSAT. I know don't want to wait, but it is your best bet. This is coming from someone who started 1L at 31 so I know what it's like going to school as a non traditional, and even if you wait you'd be 26-27? Most people in my section were around that age. Plus you can work, save some money, and get into a school worth going to.
Remember, there is always time, and law school will always be there.
Well that's unfortunate. If this is the case, I agree that your best option is to save money for a couple of years and shoot for an LSAT score of at least in the 160s unless you have great connections in a local community with a guaranteed job after you graduate from their local law school (assuming this school also gives you a full ride or close to it).
