Where should I go next fall? / low gpa . . . does it REALLY matter?
« on: February 14, 2009, 06:52:11 PM »
I am currently at a university that I absolutely hate.  Why?  because it is in a place that is full of crime, bar fights, etc.  Last year, a student died as a result of a gun shot wound in a bar downtown.  It's a depressing place and commuting sucks if you don't have a car. 

Because of that my gpa is really suffering.  I started very high with a 3.64 in the first semester and it's dropping and dropping.  Now I think I am going to graduate with a 3.3 gpa now that is very low considering that my dream school is Boston University law school.

Any advice?  I plan to take the LSAT soon and if I aim at around 170+, would that matter?  I am so depressed right now and I fell hopeless to bring up my gpa because I only have a semester to go. 

Thank you.
