I'm also currently 17 and will be just turning 19 when I graduate from MSU. I have some internship experience and a decent amount of extracurricular activities.
Do I have a chance at UVA or other T14 Law Schools if I can get my LSAT up?

My personal recommendation would not be to put yourself on a timetable. If you're really set on going to a T14, plan on working after you graduate college to give yourself more time for LSAT prep and perhaps build up the kind of soft skills and experience that will allow you to do better in classes and interviews when you get to law school. See how much your score increases after a month or so of studying and re-evaluate from there.

Most importantly, however, you will be at a severe disadvantage when it comes to landing a job. It's possible that no one will know your age until they actually hire you, but I think you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not getting some other type of work experience before going into law school.
I took a couple gap years before applying to law school and it was the best decision I ever made. To commit at 19 when you really have no idea (and to take on all that debt) seems foolish.
