Studying for the LSAT / Techniques

I'm not good at timed test and the LSAT is definitely not something that I can master quickly so would you suggest I get the strategies down with logic games and reasoning before taking a timed test?

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Educational Background

I've been out of college for 6 years. I have about a 3.0. Undergrad GPA (I's low) and I have an MA in Counselor Education with a 3.9 GPA. I've worked with at-risk inner city youths for the past 5 years (San Francisco and NYC). My interest in law is a combination of a recent divorce (husband left me and our baby when baby was only 1 month old) and working with low income families and knowing how hard it is to advocate if you are not aware of the resources available.

If I can get into law school I'd like to puruse child/woman's advocacy maybe for a non profit or legal aid society but not 1oo% certain.

I am starting to study for the LSAT so I don't have an idea of where I'm scoring. I'm aiming to get into the Southern California Schools (only because my baby is 4 months old-still very young) because that's where my family is and they can help me with childcare. So..the schools i'm aiming at are: UCLA, USC, and UCI.

How much are these schools going to factor in my undergrad gpa vs. grad gpa..soft factors such as my story and my work experience..and lastly..what lsat score should i aim at?

Lastly..thoughts on becoming a paralegal. I read on BLS that job growth for lawyers is only 11% vs. paralegal at 22%.
