I’m currently waiting on some applications that I have sumbited but I’ve been told that if you don’t get into a top 15 law school don’t bother going. Just wanted to know what your opinion is on this. As it currently stands I can get into a 75th ranked school.

What I was thinking was taking time off of work and studying to try to get a 165 score. But I would lose a year in the process. Thoughts?

Depends upon your employment goals. If you want biglaw, then you probably need to attend a very highly ranked law school (T-15).

Almost always better to retake the LSAT in order to get more scholarship offers as well as admittance to T-20 law schools.
