When the truth hurts...
The above poster is absolute correct. I thought like the OP. I worked full time throughout UG, thinking my resume and LORs from my philo and poli sci prof would help "carry" a sub par LSAT; it did not.
You mentioned in your post that you received two great LORs from a philo prof and a poli sci professor, my two majors are in both disciplines and I suggest going back to the fundamentals before you start practicing timed tests/sections.
Help to get out of the 150s funk:
1. I suggest outlining Copi's Intro to Logic (find at least a 12th edition). Outline Chapters 1-13 and do the homework at the end of each chapter.
2. David Chalmers text, Philosophy of Mind
. There is one reading from Jaewong Kim, I believe, regarding mental causation. I really liked this reading because the author breaks down the contemporary understanding of causation. Actually this whole book is helpful. Reading philosophers who tackle the issues of necessity, determinism (causality), is a good way to begin understanding "LSAT language"
3. and of course, Powerscore Logic Games Bible
OP, clearly you are improving. A SEVEN point increase is no easy feat, but you need to do it again to even have a small chance in hell of even being considered in top 50.

You need to seriously grind this shit out, 20+ hours per week, taking atleast 30+ practice tests, for at least 6 months if you're serious about law school. A 3 digit number resulting from a 3.5 hour test is worth more than EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT YOU, including your 4 years of UG and your super average resume, when it comes to law school admissions. If you refuse to take this seriously and work hard now, don't bother going to law school because you'll be toast (and $200,000 in debt with no job prospects).
Oh yea, and volunteering at a couple places and working part time through college is probably around the 50th percentile when it comes to resumes. Your LSAT score is even worse. This means that there are at least 20,000 applicants currently more competitive than you. Retake that shit or don't waste the app fees.
