General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / am i screwed?
« on: May 30, 2011, 03:50:33 PM »
Hello all,
I have a question (i hope i posted it in the right section, sorry if I didnt). I just graduated in May with my 1st bachelors in communications/journalism (Public Relations/Broadcast Media), my GPA was DEPLORABLE (2.412) due to some bad factors and I was not able to pull it up in time. I am interested in going to law school eventually down the line to practice in the field of estate, business/public policy or if it warrants, civil rights (I actually like litigation so I am open to anything). Now, I was thinking of going back to school for a 2nd bachelors in Marketing (I can go back for free), take my LSAT prep classes and prepare for the long road of applying etc.

My question is, if I got my 2nd bachelors and did a good job above 3.5 or what have you, will it be enough to sort've cover my 2.4? Am I beyond a doubt f***ed and can't get into a good law school (at least my dream school)? Give me some insight, I am willing to do whatever it means to get the wheels moving atm. I know 2nd bachelors is frowned upon but most of my credits will transfer and I can finish it easy while having my tuition covered as opposed to getting an MBA in Marketing where I'd have to pay. My mindset is if law school doesn't pan out, I can get into PRs or Marketing with my current debt only at 22-26k.
