So I know its rude to ask for help with a first post, in advance I apologize.
I graduated from a great school with only a 2.5 GPA and got a 153 on the LSAT. I didn't make any relationships with any of my profs during school, and subsequently did not get any letters of rec from them.
I battled cancer though the majority of my undergrad years and it really hindered my ability to be able to focus on high scores, as financially the cancer wiped me out and it was a struggle just to stay in school. It has now been a year since graduation and 2 in remission and I desperately want to go to law school.
My questions are,
1.) I have 2 letters of recommendation already (one from my doctor and one from my employer), should I go beg a prof who doesn't know me to write one for me?
2.) What do you think is the best law school I could realistically get into with such low scores?
3.) How heavily should I lean on my cancer experience in my personal statement?
I really appreciate any help or comments anyone could give.
