Pump up that GPA. Take everything you can before you graduate (community college credits are just as valuable as regular credits). Get As.

Then kill the LSAT. You'll be fine.

UGPA is the only GPA that matters, really. Retake the LSAT, bump your score to the upper 160s/lower 170s and you're probably in.

Really, really depends on where you want to live.

Study your ass off for the LSAT. With that sort of GPA, you shouldn't be settling. A school like Fordham isn't out of your reach.

bigs: It's not about learning the law. It's about getting a job. People at higher prestige schools have a much better shot @ that.

Wait a year. Apply to real schools. Get a full ride to WUSTL or Illinois. Don't go to John Marshall.

It's just extremely arrogant to go around saying, "A score that low is a flame" and "It speaks to the people I choose to associate with."

I teach an LSAT class: LOTS of people score in the 140s, and a few do score in the 130s. The percentiles aren't just made up.

So I'm guessing you don't have a job.

Pay attention, 0Ls-who-want-to-go-to-T3s.

If you never have met someone who scored in the 130s, that's a problem on your end. Plenty of people score in the 130s and it's absolutely silly to think otherwise.
