ROCK IT, you guys!!!!!  :)

So, I've been out of school for 23 years and am trying to figure out the LOR question.

Of all the professors I had in school (I majored in Gov, minored in theatre), the only one
with whom I'm still in contact is the head of our theatre department. I think he'd give me a great
recommendation (I was a terrific student and have had a very successful acting/producing career),
but I'm not sure whether an LOR from a theatre prof. would matter, to a law school admissions person!

As an actress, I don't really have one particular 'boss' so that's out... however, I have worked as an elected
official of my union for the past 10 years and the President of the union will write one of my LORs (I've served
on numerous contract negotiating committees, etc so this LOR will be pertinent.)

Question is... where else do I turn? 

Studying for the LSAT / PT 58!!!!!!!

Hi, all.  I'm very green at this and looking for any advice. I am a 45 year old mom of 2 little kids, currently in a very successful career in the
entertainment world. In addition, I have 8 years of experience working for my union and negotiating contracts for same... but the reality is, I've been out
of school for almost 25 years. I can't remember what my GPA was (just ordered my transcripts, from school) but think it was about a 3.6. I'm
scoring consistently in the 164 range (+/- 4 pts) and am hoping to attend Fordham's night program (so that I can continue working, at least for
the first year.)
Is this a totally unrealistic expectation? Do any of you have other advice, for me?
Thanks much !

-- I should add that I will not be asking for Financial Aid, and UG was at a Seven Sisters school.

Wow - I'm so surprised. I would have thought SOMEone would have some advice, here! :(

Studying for the LSAT / This is probably a ridiculous question....

but clearly, I'm starting to stress just a tiny bit about the 26th. I just noticed that my watch ticks... LOUDLY.
Is this likely to piss someone off so badly that they stab me with a pencil, or something? I'm pretty casual about
tests... but I'm sensing tensions could be high, in that room....
