Probably a good chance, you're at their median LSAT, but below median GPA. Since you went to their undergrad, will probably give you a boost.
LSAT GPA
Median 157 3.30
25th Percentile 154 3.02
75th Percentile 160 3.54

Thank you for your reply.

By good chance, would you say over 50%?

According to MyLSN, you might have an ok shot, but I'm not as confident as the other poster that being at their median offsets the GPA so much. Also, adcomms don't care that you went to Loyola for undergrad.

What are your career goals, and why specifically Loyola instead of other Chicago schools?

Retake. Forget about its health program. Barely 50% of Loyola grads end up in full time JD required jobs. Loyola isn't a bad option if you are cool working in small law or local gov't in chicago making less than $60k. Which also means limiting your debt. If you get into Loyola now you will not be getting much money if any.
