Bit of Background.
174 lsat (considering retaking it, only spent a few weeks preparing for it)
Currently have a 3.5 gpa (will finish between a 3.5 and 3.6)
double major in finance + economics, math minor
School (ranked in the 30s) known for grade deflation, average gpa is around a 3.0
Signed a job offer with an investment bank for the next 2 years, but want to keep my options open. Considering applying to law school after program is over.
Hoping for NYU or Columbia. Would also be applying to Georgetown, Cornell, Penn and Yale.
Is it worth retaking the lsat? I'll have some time to prepare next semester.
Do I have a shot at getting in?
Also, should I get recommendation letters from professors now?
What do people who are actually working generally do with respect to recommendations?
