What are my chances? Taking first LSAT in June but consistently testing in mid-upper 150s on my practice tests.

Keep practicing. Any school that lets you in with those types of numbers isn't worth attending.

You have plenty of time to work on your lsat score, but obviously not on your GPA. Is there a regional school in your state offering really low tuition? Midwest has some affordable and very accessible law schools, but only if you are a resident. Think about where you would like to be. If you need to move, do it at least one year in advance to become a resident.
University of Montana has resident tuition of 12k a year, and the school has a good reputation in the region. The downside is that only about 86-90% of graduates find employment in the first 8 months post graduation and median salary is abouy 50k a year. On the upside, your job (if you get one) won't be too stressful and you will have enough time to enjoy exploring a rather beautiful state.
Penn State is a good option on the East coast. Try to bring your lsat score up to 158-159 and you might even get a nice scholarship.
Whatever you do, try not to go too deep into debt.

If you can explain your GPA in your essays that indicates your GPA is not a result of just laziness - did you have some kind of incident, depression, famuily matter, or you realized one day you had to work on your grades, etc. - your LSAT only needs to be a minimum of 160 to be competitive for Top 50 schools.
