Choosing the Right Law School / Should I go for a better school
« on: December 17, 2012, 07:49:46 AM »
Well, I have been out of school for 20 years.  When I was in my undergraduate program, I was going through a lot personally, including being 9 months pregnant at the beginning of my junior year, when I transferred to a new school.  I ended up with a 2.61 GPA.  :(  Not happy about that, but nothing I can do about it now.  I'm also a single mom, 2 young kids.

I am going to law school, but I'm trying to figure out if there would be any chance of getting into a good school.  I live about 4 miles from a Cooley campus and planned on going there.  My LSAT preptests are averaging around 165 and getting better every week.  I'm hoping by February I'll be testing btw 170-175 consistently.

But, with that GPA, I'm thinking Cooley is the answer, even though it's not a great school.  Is there any chance I could get into a better school like Michigan State or U of M?...............

I also should add, that I have two incredible letters of recommendation.  They are from 10 years ago, but one is from a Macomb County, MI judge and the other is from an opposing attorney.  They are both from when I was representing myself on my divorce case when they were attempting to set aside the judgement.
