Law School Applications / Third Tier Admission
« on: April 15, 2014, 10:29:45 PM »
Hello and I apologize in advance for being another "can I get in IF" poster. I looked on a lot of different sites to find a similar situation to mine but can't seem to find one. I will keep this as brief as possible.

I never went to class during my undergrad because I was off getting "the college experience." I earned, if you can call it that, a B.S. in Human Resource Management with a lousy 2.06 GPA. A couple of years later I am here regretting it in the worst way as I now want to follow in my father's footsteps and become an attorney. I am not, however, trying to do it on his level (hence the subject of this thread). He was 3.98 for undergrad, 4.0 mba, 174 lsat, and 3.9 law school.

So here is the question: What do I need to do in order to get into West Virginia Law?

I work in admissions now at a college and they have offered to pay 100% for me to get my MBA through them but trust me, its not a well respected MBA program. For weeks I have been reading about people with similar GPAs to mine asking how to get into a top tier school and everyone has said, knock the GMAT out of the park, get a 4.0 in your MBA, score at least a 170 on the LSAT, have your letters of recommendation be from Barack and Michelle, rub your tummy 3 times, and submit your application on the 2nd Tuesday in the month after never. As I state before, however, I want to go to WVU not Harvard so what does my course of action need to include?

Thank you all for your help. I know this question is asked a lot on so many different levels.


Edit: The part where I said "not trying to do it on his same level" does not mean I do not want to work as hard as my Dad did. It just means I am not looking for admissions to top tier schools like he did (Yale) because I realize that my UGPA already eliminated me from those.
