the answer is...it depends (humor lawstudents will get). The two most important factors are gpa & lsat. But I had a miserable 2.3 also, scored well on the lsat & got into a great top 100 school. Work experience is key to an applicant not 22 & fresh out of college. But obviously, if your school's average gpa is a 3.8 with lsat's in the 170's, your chances aren't great. p.s. they say there is a law school for everyone. Good Luck!
