Would someone with a 130-140 LSAT be able to get into a law school in the NY Metropolitan area?

    If those were one's LSAT scores, LS is not advisable. But to answer your question, no.

    FWIW the LS with the lowest LSAT average in the country is Southern University. Their 25th percentile is a 143. Their median is a 146.

    Go to Welcome to LSAC.org. Use the link for prospective students. Use the sublink to search for law schools with undergrad gpa and LSAT. Not all law schools use this, but it will give you an idea of those where you have some chance of being admitted.

    I concur with the advice not to go to law school if those are your stats unless someone else is paying for it and you're getting a paycheck too.

    A score in that range would indicate one (or ) of three things:

    1) You were very ill-prepared.
    2) You just aren't qualified enough to study law.
    3) Grading mix-up/ problems.

    I think you should give LSAC a call. The fact that your score is significantly below the median score of students accepted to the least selective law school in the country is unfathomable.

    Retake, with those scores you wouldn't get anywhere worth the amount of debt you'll be taking on.
