General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: am i screwed?

Ahhh I am a her, not him :P.

But, I am interested in law more than those as well. I have lurked enough law school forums like these to understand it is not a 'every other grad school' type of institution. My rationale behind Marketing/PR is that is a fall back plan. I understand I could very well not do well enough to get into law school or karma may make me drop out but if that is the case I can still pursue other careers. Every forum I see graduates and drop outs saying they either made a career with something else or are unemployed, etc etc. I don't want to be that person or in that situation where I an broke or unemployed. If need be, I have flexibility to do so.

Don't laugh but I really would like to be a federal judge and work with the constitutional law and I want to do what I can to make it happen. Like the title of the topic says, I just want to know if I have a chance and seeing as I do, I will take it.

I see. Ahhh, I feel so screwed beyond belief. I am starting to study on my own but that just made me more nervous. Thanks for the advice. I like journalism but I am really interested in PRs/Marketing only so I was exploring side options as well.

Hello all,
I have a question (i hope i posted it in the right section, sorry if I didnt). I just graduated in May with my 1st bachelors in communications/journalism (Public Relations/Broadcast Media), my GPA was DEPLORABLE (2.412) due to some bad factors and I was not able to pull it up in time. I am interested in going to law school eventually down the line to practice in the field of estate, business/public policy or if it warrants, civil rights (I actually like litigation so I am open to anything). Now, I was thinking of going back to school for a 2nd bachelors in Marketing (I can go back for free), take my LSAT prep classes and prepare for the long road of applying etc.

My question is, if I got my 2nd bachelors and did a good job above 3.5 or what have you, will it be enough to sort've cover my 2.4? Am I beyond a doubt f***ed and can't get into a good law school (at least my dream school)? Give me some insight, I am willing to do whatever it means to get the wheels moving atm. I know 2nd bachelors is frowned upon but most of my credits will transfer and I can finish it easy while having my tuition covered as opposed to getting an MBA in Marketing where I'd have to pay. My mindset is if law school doesn't pan out, I can get into PRs or Marketing with my current debt only at 22-26k.
