I believe that LSAC calculates your GPA based on all grades received from all institutions attended.

The only information she had suggested to me in regards to the LSAT, is that a 155 LSAT Score would make it so I would not need to take a GMAT. This was for the prospect of doing the dual JD/MBA program through SCALE.
I had a meeting with the Associate Dean for Interdisciplinary Programs.
Honestly, I don't know if you should go to law school if you can't get into a tier 1 or 2.
Unless you have some serious experience/qualifications in a specialty, you'll likely be beat out for jobs by tier 1 or 2 graduates every time.
I also wanted to write that the topics didn't spark my interest, but I don't know if I should include that.
No idea what a SCALE is, its 4 years for DL California law schools. Can't imagine anyone passing the bar with 2 years.
As I have said before, the best candidate for a DL law school is someone already working in the legal system with a phenomenal memory who can't attend a regular law school.
On campus is easier, for one main reason (no fxbx) even ABA grads who sit it fail it the majority of the time. That alone makes it easier.
And yes, many "Top" lawschools are either no exam, all open book, and a P/F grade scale.
I think brick and morter law school is easier. Although I have not attended one, I heard that everybody pretty much passes and they have open book tests and you do not even have to attend class for the lectures. You just have to show up for the open book tests. You can also take classes though the summer and get it over with in 2 years insted of the 4 years that online law school makes us do.
All lawyers are not created equal and my experience is that you better be ready to start at the very bottom with a DL Degree - solo practice with very few lawyers willing to mentor till you prove yourself. This involves taking cases others won't touch with a ten foot pole. In California this means Social Security, Workers Comp, never ending cutody disputes, parole hearings and misdemeanors.so basicly the legal internships that the rest of us do while in law school.
