Non-Traditional Students / Undergrad student with questions....
« on: June 24, 2011, 12:41:53 PM »
Hi all I'm new here I'm 22 years old and I will be transferring to Southern Illinois University in the fall from my community college. I have a 2 year old and hadn't been the best student.. I had to withdraw from some classes and retake a couple. I have also failed maybe 3-4 courses...some which have been retaken. I know SIUC isn't a great school BUT its a start I'm really passionate about becoming a lawyer. I know that I can focus and go through all the schooling. I love the law (as corny as it sounds) but I learn something about it and it sticks with me. I want a little advice from you experienced ppl. I want to go to a good law school. SIUC has a law school but... being honest if I want to become a GREAT, SUCCESSFUL lawyer I think I should get into a great school.  I was looking at the 2011 top law school ranking and I was wondering what undergrad gpa/ extra curricular activities I would need to have a shot at these following law schools...

1. UCLA
2. Northwestern University (IL)
3. University of Michigan (Ann Arbor)
4. New York University
5. Vanderbilt
6. University of Texas- Austin
7. University of Chicago
8. Cornell University
9. Georgetown
10. Duke

I know this is probably a BIG list but I figured maybe its better to start somewhere... What do you all think of these universities?  Please give me any advice that you can. I'm a very focused woman with dreams and I will accomplish them. I just need a little guidance from people who have been here or at least have an idea of what I'm going through. I'm not sure if I want to go into Entertainment Law or Family Law...
 Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
