I am new to this conference and new to the idea of law school. I intended on graduating with a BBA from Emory's Goizueta Business School and join the workforce with the intention on getting a MBA later but now I am considering attending law school. I have approximately a 3.1-3.2 GPA and havent taken the LSATs although I have taken a practice exam and scored a 167. I am considering UPENN, Emory,NYU, Georgetown, Temple, Howard, and HYS. I really want to go to UPENN above all else. I am wondering if I have a chance @ UPENN, Georgetown, HYS. I have recs including an internship in Sierre Leone with a private firm involved with the rebuilding of the country's infrastructure, community service time with underprivileged youth in metro atlanta, involvement in the black student alliance and starting a niche oriented event planning company. I am exploring input from those who have been there or know people in a similar situation as me. I know my GPA is not the best but the program Im in at school is on a curve (e.g only the top 15% can get an A etc) so its really competitive and more challenging than staying in the college/liberal arts programs.
Thanks for the input
