The nice thing about South Texas and Southern is they specialize in finding decent lawyers from the pool of Texas applicants who couldn’t get into Texas, Baylor, SMU, or Houston.  This pool includes a lot of bright people who may have a tarnished academic record (for whatever reason).  They do look at factors beyond the GPA/LSAT table.  Those scores are of course important, but they may not be the dispositive factor that they are elsewhere.  Another school you may want to try right now is St. Mary’s.  It used to be a great school that turned out plenty of sharp Texas litigators, but it took a nose dive in recent years (due in large part to poor leadership and faculty-hiring decisions) and now they are in a kind of rebuilding mode.  Anyway, my point is that at these smaller, “less-prestigious” schools, GPA and LSAT are not the Alpha-Omega they are at others.  Good luck!
