BTW... I'm 22 years old, and got a job with a start up company last year, that has taken off. Guess how much I am making now? Almost 70K annual salary... Not bad for a 2010 undergrad.... I didn't include that in my initial post either.

What do your junior and senior year grades look like? Admissions committees look for an upward trend. It will also be very important that any letters of recommendation you get (yes you will need them for applications) are from professors who are familiar with your work. If your lsat comes in below 160, take a prep course and get it above 160. Visit the law school information site. If you can get into the 160's and a couple of professor LOR's you can get into a school. Not going to be T14.
If you want to live and practice anywhere other than CA, you need to go to ABA school. If there is no shot in hell at an ABA school, you can go to on unaccredited school. But, you will have to spend at least 3-5 years in CA practicing before you can even take a bar exam in a different state. Non-ABA can't usually waive into different jurisdictions even if they have experience. Check out http://www.law-schoolcoach.com/Considering-Law-School/Choosing-Law-Schools.htm

Here is another link that is actually free and has a lot of the same information:
You may want to consider using the essay for a reach school. It does really border on gimmick, but it would certainly make you stand out. I found a usefull article on personal statments. Here is the link: http://www.law-schoolcoach.com/Considering-Law-School/Law-School-Personal-Statement.htm
