South Asian is not URM. Law Schools don't care about your thesis.

Forget about environmental and international law, it's almost impossible to get that even from top schools, let alone the schools you listed. You should be more focused on whether the school you attend will get you a job practicing any law at all. I don't recommend any of these schools.

You said you're planning to retake. Do so in June. Get at least 170. Drastically revise your list of schools.

Also, these schools are all over the place. Where do you want to practice?

OP, are you a troll and/or flame?

Any school that will accept you with a 151 LSAT is not worth attending. You need to retake.

That would be ORM.

Over-represented minority.
