I'm wondering if anyone has successfully been accepted into law school with a messy transcript (maybe taking time off, with a lot of W's, or with some F's). My situation is 8 w's and 3 F's on my Junior college transcript. I've have now been two and half years at a State University and have a 3.9. and will graduate next semester. I don't know exactly how LSAC will calculate but if I enter the 3 F's (academically renewed but I know it won't count for LSAC) my GPA comes out to 3.55. The W's are all non-punitive but I'm wondering if even I take a year after graduate to do an internship and prepare well for the LSAT if any 2nd tier or 3rd tier law school will accept me. Did anyone recover from a bad academic record and receive admittance into a decent program?
