It's been simmering in the back of my mind for years. When I was a teenager, I put it on the list of things I want to do before I die. Then, I did a lot of stupid things. A LOT of stupid things (nothing that resulted in any felonies, thank God). I did start college at least, but dropped out after 34 hours. Six years ago, I straightened out my life. Last year, at 34, I started school again, and can graduate anytime between May '09 and May '10, depending on how hard I push it and whether or not I add a second major. I have a 4.0 at my new school, and will keep it. Combined with my previous work, that will give me a 3.75 (approximately) according to the LSDAS formula. I test well, and based on the practice test I took the other day, expect to score in the 170's on the LSAT. My past may trip me up, but I have this crazy idea that I'll get into a top tier school. That's the goal anyway. I guess I might be overcompensating for screwing it all up the first time around, but I'm okay with that.
