Wouldn't it depend on where you are working?  There are some extremely conservative law firms that might not let women have them either, just as they wouldn't let me have tatoos all over and lots of piercings.  Unfortunatly, many law firms clients they defend have dreads and they don't have the character you do.  The world hasn't evolved alot, I do think for some jobs it could work against you.

I wouldn't.  You have a great gpa.  You can talk about all of your good qualities.  I have a disability and it hurts me when I disclose it but I live in the South and its conservative here.  You can always register with disability services once accepted to get your accomodations.

You can go where ever you want with those scores.  Have you applied to Duke?  They will take military references and personal references so will Wake Forest and Campbell.  Schools in North Carolina are extremely military friendly.

I was a Finance major in college, worked in accounting a long time.  I got sick and haven't worked regularly in eight years.  I could care less about ever working with numbers again.  I have always been interested in helping people, especially those who got something they didn't deserve.  There are so many people that need help.  The field of eldercare is constantly growing it doesn't constantly have to be about big business.  I am still searching like you, I am 34.  I don't know if I can do it, but I'm gonna try.

There are many states that will let you practice law with a felony.  There are others that will give you a probationary license until you prove you can do the job competently.  You could check with your local bar association.  I would think you would have to show you are currently stable and in a treatment program if need be.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: I'm giving up on Law School....

It sounds like you are down, but I would not give up this opportunity.  You can always try it and if you don't like it after a year you can quit.  In this economy this degree will open doors for you.  Thats alot of negative self talk, remember the economy is not good so going to school right now is a good option.

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT Prep classes

Do you feel lsat prep classes have helped you?  Do you usually apply to the school after you take the test?  Its been a while since I got my bs.  Looking for insight.

Law School Admissions / Re: What would happen if you did this?

Those statistics are only for government reporting they have no bearing on admittance.

I have just started exploring applying for law school and have a similar situation.  I am thinking of having a doctor explain my situation since my resume is so choppy.  At the same time you have to look at whether they think you can do the work.  I would write an essay on how you have completed projects from start to finish using attention to detail showing your leadership capabilities.  Disability services could help you get accomodations.  148 is not a bad score.
