Hello,
I have decided (for some time now) to go to law school.  I will graduate from Cal State Fullerton in May '09 and plan to take the LSAT on 9/26/09.  I can only attend law school in California because of family obligations.  My question is, with a gpa of 3.0 what would I need to score on the LSAT to get into Tier 1 and Tier 2 schools?  I have worked in the legal field for over 10 years and been a secretary for 7.  Thanks!

Hey, I got to Fullerton too...maybe we can exchange study tips for the LSAT...

it's called a "gpa addendum"

you should definitely write one explaining this for schools which are target/reach...

it definitely can't hurt you as long as you take some responsibility and don't come off sounding completely like "hey, it's not my fault!"

Do I write a specific addendum for each school or do I include the same one in all my apps? I'm not very familiar with the process...thanks again...

During my freshman year of college both of my parents lost their jobs, and in order for us to keep our house I had to get a full time job. (I took the real estate licensee exam and sold property). Anyways, my grades suffered mightily, and I was kicked out fro academic disqualification. After taking a semester off to work full time without any distraction and after my parents found work, I enrolled in a JC maintained a 3.3 gpa and transferred back to my University. I have since maintained a gpa over 3, but my LSAC gpa will probably only be around 2.8ish when I apply this fall. Do I explain this is an essay of some sort? Or do I just let my grades speak for them self? Some people have told me to not bring the issue up in my apps. Any advice? thanks in advance...
