Hi guys-- first, thank you in advance for the sage advice.
Here's the deal:
GPA: 3.85, poli sci major at public university
5 years work experience-- teach for america, then working for an international development company working in several different african countries. I was mainly working in the education sector, but have some decent experience working with developing country govrernments.
LOR-- 2 bosses from my 2 most recent jobs + 1 former professor
I'm particularly interested in Stanford-- I think their law school vibe would match my academic style and they have a great ed school that I can hopefully joint degree in. That doesn't mean I wont apply elsewhere, but I want to make sure im making the right decisions to maximize chances at my ideal choice.
Didn't take September LSAT, but wondering if I should retake December or just work on a killer application with my numbers.
Thank you, again.
Not sure where your numbers will get you? Dying to know where you stand? Come have your palms read by your fellow posters!

Not great chances honestly. Also teach for america is not a great soft anymore. Im at duke/uva and over 10% of one of my classes (which has 100 people in it) are former TFA. Lots of people have TFA now. It wont hurt you but it wont help. Get a few more points on the lsat and it might help chances.

Below median at both without any remarkable softs (you'll look better than a 3.85/170 kjd, but not better than a 3.85/171 kjd). So, chance, definitely, but probably right what mylsn says for an applicant above the schools 25th/below their median: 15% (5/6/22, acc/wl/rej). every point in a retake would help imo.
