Had same stats, got into YH and duke. This was a number of years ago when scores were a bit lower (i have heard there are more high scorers now). Didn’t apply anywhere else. I hope you are trolling about retaking. Anyway with schools pulling out of usnwr it’s anyones guess.

Unless some other aspect of your application is glaringly deficient, then accepted everywhere, except possibly Yale and Stanford (which you say you aren't apply to in any event). Not sure if you're being serious, but retaking is an absolute waste of time. Please don't do it.

My daughter's exact stats before applying to law schools in 2019. She got admitted to Harvard, Columbia, NYU, Chicago (small scholarship), Virginia (large scholarship). Duke (larger scholarship) and Georgetown. Was wait-listed at Yale, Stanford and Michigan. Those were the only schools to which she applied.

Of course, starting soon LSAT scores may no longer be considered (or maybe just not reported to USN&WR).

Re-taking the LSAT to achieve a score of 180 is an utter waste of time, total vanity and will probably hurt more than it will help. With those current stats if you have an impressive major and good extracurricular activities, you should be admitted to all of the T14.

You should only retake for 180 if you want to start a test prep company and be able to claim that you scored perfectly on the LSAT.
