Non-Traditional Students / Re: How do you get back into law school?
« on: August 05, 2010, 05:21:36 PM »
Hey all, thanks for replying. Well there is an petition process which the school allows and I did do that but unfortunately they still found no reason to let me back in. I was not trying to make excuses during the meeting but I did tell them that I had to deal with unforeseen family problems which kept me traveling every weekend. I really do feel that this hampered my ability to study during the weekends and because of this I tried cramming as much as I could during the week. I even got letters from doctors and witnesses stating the situation I was in but I guess the appeals board didnt think I deserved another chance =/. And the sad part about all of this was that I literally had a 1.99 and the requirement was a 2.0.

So at this point I'm just trying to get a job and get experience and maybe do my masters or take some classes. But nothing is set in stone because this is all a very confusing time for me right now.

Hello all,

Well I'm actually new to this board, and I'm posting on here because I've read other discussions on here and found them to be really helpful. Starting off, I'm 22 yrs old, and this past year I completed my first year of law school. Unfortunately about 2 weeks ago I got a letter stating that I had been dismissed because I had a GPA of 1.99 and the school required a GPA 2.00. I had a valid reason as to why my GPA was so low, and that mainly comes from unforeseen family problems I had to deal with this past year.

These past 2 weeks have been really difficult for me because it feels like everything I have been working towards for all these years has just been taken from me, and I can't do anything about it. I'm at a loss about what to do with my life. I graduated with a BA in Political Science in 2009 and I had an LSAT score of 153. I know I want to go back to law school but am not sure about how to get there. I have considered enrolling in a masters program and working full time in the time being, but I want to get back into law school ASAP. What would I need to do to get back into school, and do I even have a chance?

Thank you all in advance.
