There are indeed many things that you can do. Although, just because it is something you can do, it does not mean that it is worth doing.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: LLB as a 'leg-up' for JD application?

I do not think that you will see much upside from earning another degree as a way of mitigating a low undergrad GPA. Most of those who have applied with a graduate degree under their belts report that their application cycle went nearly as expected based on UGPA and LSAT.

My suggestion would be to but in extra effort on the LSAT and do what you can to ensure the best score that you can pull from the test, then give it a go.

Happy Hunting,

The common condenses seems to be that GPA matters FAR more than degree for admissions into law school.

As a general rule of thumb, math, science and engineering programs are often thought to be more difficult to maintain a top GPA compared to 'softer' fields. This is not to say that one should not pursue such fields, but you should be aware that failing to maintain a strong GPA could seriously hurt your chances at admission to a top law school.

With this in mind, when choosing a tougher path through undergrad, select a field that you have a passion for. Hopefully this will provide you with the motivation necessary to stay on top of your coursework, helping to keep your GPA in a range that will give you a shot at the schools that you are interested in.

Happy Hunting,

hi ,i have seen many posts from people like you  down grading any one trying to get ahead through on line education .Have you ever tried it and what schools did you graduate? RON A. BBA-MBA

oceanblue57,

Education is an odd thing, especially when it comes to the professional gains one can make from earning a degree. Its value is not solely determined by what you learn as a student, a large part of the value is how your education is perceived by others. I am not saying this is fair, I am just saying that this is how it is.

Online education will eventually come to the field of law in a big way, but it is not here yet. Until such time as the ABA accredits an online program, allowing its graduates to sit for the Bar it is going to remain ugly for online law programs. The increasing acceptance of online education in other fields will help apply pressure to the ABA, but they will hold for some time to come. Already we have major schools that offer degrees to be earned fully or mostly online, including Columbia, Stanford, & Harvard. I myself have earned a Masters degree from the Harvard (specifically a Masters of Liberal Arts in Information Technology from the Extension School at Harvard University). I completed 75% of my course work online.

As someone who is looking at possibly going back to school to earn a JD, I would love to see a reasonable online option to be available. Unfortunately that option does not seem to exist, and is unlikely to exist in the timeframe that I am interested in.

Hard to imagine anyone with such spotty credentials passing law school..

Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.

Interesting article at Wall Street Journal's 'Law Blog' on the competition of Law Schools for law students.

http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2012/07/30/law-schools-bargain-with-students-to-fill-seats/

On the bright side for you, there are a LOT more people with 3.7 GPAs then there are with 176 LSATs. So, I have no doubt that someone in the top 20 would give you a chance.
