Have you looked at MBE material, eg., PMBR? The Crim Pro section won't be as large as the Crim Law, but you'll get questions.

Slacker, I think peaches meant "killer" in a bad way.I think so, also, and I highlighted that text because I agree with that point. Despite all the talk about soft factors, the LSAT/GPA are ultimately going to make the difference.
Even with the minority status and the very good experience, that LSAT score when combined with that GPA is killer. You've got to push that LSAT score up to about 150. I'd make pushing that LSAT up to 150 your first goal, and then retake shooting for a 155-160. Even if it means putting off the law school application process. Unfortunately, your undergraduate GPA and your LSAT score will be major determining factors. Your grad school GPA is just considered another "boost" like having a good resume.titcr - I put the most important point of that post in bold. You've got great "soft" factors, but when push comes to shove, GPA (undergrad) and LSAT score are going to rule. The points about the job market are ones to really take into account, also. I'm not one to say "don't go", but I think it is in your best interest to fully research things at this point.
As part of your research process, you should also really think about what you want to do out of law school and what the employment market looks like out of the schools you're considering. Consider asking the career service offices for their (detailed) employment data and a list of jobs that this year's 3L and 2L class have accepted. If a lot of them are doing something you'd want to do, then great. If not, I'd look long and hard about whether it's worth the debt and 3 years.
You can do a lot with a very good resume and a master's in education.
What's the typical way to do this? Is it a bad idea to work during bar study? What do most people do?Most people don't work. Or if they do start prepping whele they're working, they take off for the last 2-3 weeks prior to the bar.
