How do my chances look?

<p>Hey guys,</p>

<p>I took the LSAT in October and got a 159 which I was a bit dissapointed with. I was scoring around a 160-162 on my practice tests. I have been studying and plan on retaking the LSAT in February aiming for at least a 162. I am a Senior at Georgia Tech with a 3.24 GPA. Here is my list, if you guys could give me some insight. I do plan on applying this year even though I will be applying at most schools' deadlines. What do you think my chances are of getting into these schools, and can you give me any advice / direction? Thanks,</p>

<p>Decent at Florida State, assuming that you do score the 162 next try</p>

<p>OK at Georgia State with your current stats</p>

<p>OK at U of Tennessee again, if you get the LSAT up to 162</p>

<p>All that being said, you might be better off waiting until the next cycle to apply. Most schools have rolling admission and there are more seats to be had earlier in the cycle. Also take more time to really prep for your next LSAT and try to improve a lot. If you can't score well enough to get into a good school the job prospects will not be good. They will not be guaranteed even from a top school unless you have some connections, so keep that in mind while making your decisions and possibly going into debt. If there is any chance to raise your GPA you should really focus on doing that because your current GPA will hold you back even with a much higher LSAT score. </p>
