No I'm not a troll.. Geez...

I don't need law school to be President and I could run on either tickets as both parties endorse each other's agenda at times.

My mistake for just being honest .

I don't think any law school is the golden ticket without the perseverance of that person.

Anyway good luck with your application process if needed

No law school is a golden ticket, with or without perserverance.

Yes, I completed my thesis and got it published but I had to work. I have parents to take care of.

So since I more than likely won't be able schedule wise to attend this fall, thinking about either paying for an online course or book and retaking in August.

Congrats on the promotion and good for you on thinking about a retake. This is all positive stuff.

Even though the comments were harsh, I have tried to take into all perspectives and take this seriously

I believe the majority of users on this site are over-educated idiots who have hardly worked 70 hours in their lives let alone a week. They do not work, so they study for hours upon hours and I'm sure if you had no other commitments in life besides the LSAT, your score would reflect theirs. Everyone on Top Law preaches big law, big law, and more big law. The truth is you can live a pretty comfortable life working at a small local firm. With those stats a top school is unlikely, but their many good regional schools to chose from. My guess with your work ethic you might even surpass the over-educated idiots in the classroom.

No one implied OP did not have a strong work ethic, only as to why he did not retake considering all the doors it could open up

I could have done some things differently.

I walked amile to the test site b/c I walk all the time but I was at work that morning before I left for test and was thinking about work during the test.

The testing site I went to had these hard benches for high school children, that was uncomfortable.

and I didn't study at all.

I got into 3 out of 5 schools. those being Northwestern and Loyola Chicago I didn't get in. But now I want more in regards to scholarships. I only got one full scholarship from a school I'm not going to attend.

I have a parent I have to care for, so that complicates things.

I am giving myself this month to think about what I want to do.

and pay the initial parts of seat deposit at 2 school but I am also seriously considering getting some books and practicing, I really don't have time for the classes.

I understand all viewpoints though.

If your job is going well, there's no rush. If you feel like you could do better (and if you didn't study at all, you can do better) then retaking seems like a good idea. I bumped my score up a lot while caring for a family member and working full-time. It is surprising how a little bit of prep can go a long way if you're motivated to work hard and be efficient (which it sounds like you are). Hope everything works out for you.
