I guess I am what you call a non-traditional student - I'm 35, have 2 kids (ages 1 and 3) and am a full-time student who will graduate in May with an accounting degree. I want to go to law school, but am only applying to schools with part-time evening programs (SMU, Texas Wesleyan, U of Houston, South Texas) so I can be home with my kids. My problem is that my overall GPA is a 2.33 (I had way too much fun the first few times around at college). I have a 4.00 at my degree-granting school, but I know most schools look at the cumulative. I made a 161 on the LSAT. Do I have any shot at getting in?? By the way, until I met my husband in 1999, I had worked at law firms for the previous 8 years. At the last one, I worked my way up from legal secretary to assistant office manager and still do work for them a few hours a month at home. Hopefully this will help!
