2) have a high GPA-LSAT compared to the rest of your classmates. GPA should be from a respectable well-reputed/rigorous undergrad, not one that gives A's out for showing up.
I will just add something to this discussion, if your parents buy you a car, still make payments if you can, but to yourself. I did this when I got my first car in high school. My parents paid the $1000 for a ’79 VW Sirocco. I then paid $100 a month into a “car account” after two and half a years I bought a newer car for cash with that money. Since then (many years ago, I’m in my 30’s) I have always paid cash for my cars, and then paid myself a monthly car payment to put away for the next car. I now have two cars (which is stupid because I only drive one about 3 times a year) and they are both paid for, but I still keep making payments ($450 each) to my car savings account for the next one. After a year or so doing this it just becomes habit, and it keeps you from spending your whole paycheck while saving money for something you’re going to need in the future. Just something to consider when you all get your first jobs out of law school.

I'm not saying it will be worth less than 100K, I was just alluding to my previous post that you should do cost-benefit analysis on the tuition price.
I'm "studying" for a con law final- reread a case, goof off on the net. repeat as necessary.
