Thank you for the input. You are right that I only have two options for law school. So darn my UGPA, but it is what it is. My hope is that SMU will at least look at my med school transcript and see that this chick can handle the workload. I do plan to work my hiney off to ace the LSAT. I'm not one to go into anything unprepared (though I was during undergrad, lol!).
As far as confusion, no, I really want to be a lawyer. I just need a back up plan because I am 46 and limited geographically. If I'm going to have a second career, then it needs to happen soonest. And I have to be judicious about spending family resources, as I have two entering high school so funding their education is a higher priority. Public health can have me working on health policy and I would enjoy that, but law is my first choice. In either case I hope to put my medical background to good use.
Thanks for the input. It's great to soak up all the wisdom from this site.
