What are the chances for Part-time law schools in DC with LSAT cold score 150?

Hi, I'm a permanent resident in the US who works and lives near DC area. Exactly one year ago, I took a LSAT cold and scored 150. With GPA 3.5, I was so discouraged by my LSAT result that I applied for a job and began to work instead of applying for law schools.

Now I saved some money with a year of work experience, and my employer offered me an opportunity to apply for evening programs at law schools in or near DC.

My target schools are Georgetown, George Washington, George Mason, and American. And I recently found out that George Washington evening program accepted a student with LSAT 152, which gave me some hope.

What are the chances for me to get into each law school(GU, GW, GMU, American)?

I guess the relatively safe LSAT score for GU evening program would be at least over 160. Would it be possible to increase my score over 160 in 3-4 months if I start to study LSAT from July?

A 150 is well below the range of serious consideration for each school, both full-time and part-time. Because your GPA is also pretty low for the listed schools' part-time programs, you'd likely need an LSAT score *above* a school's part-time median to be competitive at all for that program. For Georgetown, that means 166 or higher. GW: 158. GM: 164. AU: 160.

All that said, a 150 cold isn’t a bad score and suggests you will be able to improve quite a bit with studying.
